Bogus Basin to open the backside Sat. with Pine Creek chair opening

Bogus Basin announced this afternoon that it’ll open three more lifts tomorrow: Bitterroot, Morning Star, and the No. 6 Pine Creek chair, the big one that provides access to the east-facing backside of the mountain. That’s in addition to the No. 1 Deer Point and Coach chairs already scheduled to open.

Bogus reported a 22 inch base with 5 to 6 inches of fresh snow on atop that. “More snow is in the forecast for the week ahead,” the non-profit resort said in an email to season passholders. “Snow conditions are incredible for early season skiing and riding. The new snow has fallen on a very solid base making for fun and exciting conditions. It is still early season, so be aware there are a few exposed hazards. Be cautious and use good judgment as you head out.”

Meanwhile, Brundage Mountain reported receiving 10 inches of new snow, and added to the limited opening it had planned for Saturday; it will open more lifts and also will be open Sunday.
