Bogus Basin has announced that, thanks to a foot of new snow in the past 72 hours, it will open the No. 6 Pine Creek chairlift on the mountain’s backside on Tuesday, starting at noon. That’s a big step, opening up much more terrain at the local non-profit ski hill during this week’s holiday rush. The ski resort said limited grooming will be done on the Pine Creek side of the mountain on Nugget cat track, Lower Nugget and Easiest Way Down. Also, the Pioneer Lodge will open on Tuesday, and night skiing will start Friday night. Ticket prices will rise to $49 full-day for adults. For now, lifts are open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There’s more info here.
