Bogus Basin will open Thursday

It's been a long wait for Boise skiers, with Bogus Basin not yet open even as the holiday season approaches. But now, thanks to the current storm, comes the good news: The local non-profit ski resort will open for the season on Thursday. According to an announcement just posted on their Web site, chairlifts 1, 2, 4, 7 and Easy Rider will run, and operating hours for Thursday and Friday will be 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lift tickets will be discounted until the full mountain opens.

“We hope to add the Bitterroot Basin to the mix on Saturday,” said Steve Shake, vice president of  mountain operations.  “We’ll open more of the mountain, including night skiing and riding, as we receive more snow.”
