Boise’s local ski resort, Bogus Basin, announced today that it’ll open the No. 5 Bitterroot chair as well as the front-side lifts tomorrow, it’ll start night skiing on Friday night and it’ll open the No. 6 Pine Creek chair on Saturday. That’s the high-speed quad on the backside. “We took a look at the mountain and the snow conditions are tremendous,” said Steve Shake, vice president of mountain operations. “We will see what the next few forecasted storms bring us, in hopes of announcing an opening for chairlift No. 3/Superior.” Opening the north-facing slopes of the Superior chair would bring the mountain to full operation.
