December 16, 2021 (BOISE, ID)– Bogus Basin announced today that the ski and snowboard operations will fully open for the season on Saturday, December 18th. The non-profit recreation area, which received over 35″ of snow in the last week, will open the Bitterroot and Superior Express Chairlifts for the first time of the season on Saturday.
The 2021/22 Winter Season at Bogus Basin began on November 20th, exclusively on machine made snow. Snowmaking efforts continue at the mountain, boosting early season coverage in time for the upcoming holidays.
“The recent storm left the mountain in great shape, especially on the groomed runs,” said Director of Skier Services, Jamie Zolber. “We do advise guests to watch out for unmarked obstacles while enjoying their early season turns.”
Managing the flow of guests remains a priority at the area, which began capping the quantity of daily lift tickets sold last year. This strategy helped the non-profit encourage visits during off-peak hours, improving the overall guest experience. Advance, online lift ticket purchases are recommended.
