For the first time this season, Bogus Basin has announced that it's opening the Superior chair on the backside today, the last major section of the mountain that's not been able to open so far due to the thin snowpack. There's more info here at the Bogus website, which reports that 5 inches of new snow fell overnight. Superior will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the non-profit ski area announced. Early-season conditions remain, with a reported snow base depth of 23 inches. The best news: There's more snow in the forecast all week, including a National Weather Service forecast for 5 to 9 inches more accumulation overnight tonight.
