Bogus to open backside, night skiing

Here's a holiday gift for Boise-area skiers and snowboarders: Bogus Basin has announced it'll open at least part of its backside - Pinecreek Chair No. 6 and Bitterroot Chair No. 5 - plus night skiing, all this Saturday. The non-profit ski resort had a rather late opening for the season on Wednesday, and has only had its front-side runs open through today. So far, the Superior Chair No. 3 is not scheduled to open, "but forecasts promise more snow over the weekend," the resort said. Bogus' family-friendly Pepsi GoldRush Tubing Hill also was scheduled to open on Saturday, but due to mechanical problems that's now been tenatively reset for Sunday.
