Today was the first time since 1994 that Bogus Basin ski area has opened on Thanksgiving Day, and it was a particularly nice one. It was c-c-cold, the powder was fresh, the sun was peeking out and snowflakes were sparkling in the air. Eager skiers and snowboarders enjoyed the frontside and Bitterroot Basin, but here's the best part: Bogus has just announced that the backside, both Superior Chair No. 3 and Pine Creek Chair No. 6, will open on Saturday.
