It’s been raining in Boise and snowing in the mountains, and now comes the news that Boise skiers have been waiting for weeks to hear: Bogus Basin will open (finally!) on Thursday. The resort will have its front side open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with all lodges open and lessons available. They’re reporting a base depth of 19” of snow, with 21” at the top and 7 inches new so far today. It looks like they’ve gotten 2” just in the past hour.
Short takes and breaking news from the Idaho Legislature and the state capital.
