Getting a look at Bogus Basin

bogusThe inversion lifted and the clouds parted today (Dec. 3) to give us a look at Bogus Basin. There’s snow up there as you can see.

The ski area got an inch of new snow today and has a 14-inch base. It’s just wait and see what the weather will bring us.

In the meantime, Bogus Basin season passholders can show their Bogus passes to get 2 for 1 lift tickets at Sun Valley Resort. The offer is good until Bogus Basin opens for the season.

Also, the Bogus Basin Ski Patrol is sponsoring a Wax N’ Beer  event from 6 to 9 p.m., Dec. 5, Dec. 19, Jan. 9 and Jan. 23 on the patio at Sockeye Grill & Brewery, 3019 N. Cole Road in Boise. It’s a fundraiser for the patrol.

Bogus Basin ski patrollers will hot wax gear for a $10 ($15 snowboards) donation. Those 21 and older will get a free pint of beer while they wait for the equipment to be waxed. The money raised will support the Bogus Basin ski patrol operations. Ski and snowboard movies will be shown on the heated patio.
