Snow hits, Bogus Basin extends season pass sale thru Thursday…

It’s snowing again, and Bogus Basin has extended its season pass sale through Thursday at the $229 price.  The week-long sale that had been scheduled to end last night at midnight saw a dramatic change once snow hit the mountain late last week, general manager Alan Moore reports; last Monday, pass sales were about half of normal, but as the week progressed and 9 inches of new snow fell, that turned around to where sales were above normal on the sale’s final day. “As we all know, snow changes everything for Bogus,” Moore said. “We just want to make sure that no one is left out that would have bought a pass with the changed conditions.” The low-priced season passes allow skiers to ski right away, plus all through next season; it only takes five trips to the mountain to break even on buying a pass.

“Everything has Changed”, “No Excuses Pass Sale Extension”

For immediate release

February 25, 2013 (Boise, ID) Bogus Basin just completed the strangest pass sale of its “affordable” pricing history. At the start of the sale on Monday, February 18th, the base snow marker read 35” and the first day of the pass sale was about half of normal. As the week progressed and we received 9” of new snow, the pass sales increased dramatically and were above normal on the last day, AND it’s still snowing.

“As we all know, snow changes everything for Bogus. We just want to make sure that no one is left out that would have bought a pass with the changed conditions,” said Alan Moore, Bogus GM.

Bogus is extending the $229 price through Thursday, Feb 28th.
