Here’s some truly sad news: Bogus Basin has just announced that this will be the last full week of skiing for the season at the non-profit Boise ski resort, which normally stays open until early April. Bogus will be open weekends only starting this Saturday, March 14. After this coming weekend, it will remain open weekends only “as conditions allow.”
A spring carnival is planned for this Saturday with activities and prizes, outdoor music near the Simplot lodge from 11:30 to 5, and food and beverage specials at both lodges. Tickets will be discounted to $25 starting Saturday, with skiing on the No. 1 Deer Point, No. 3 Superior and No. 7 Coach chairlifts and the Easy Rider magic carpet; the No. 2 Morning Star chairlift will be open for access only. This coming weekend will be the last for food and beverage service at the upper Pioneer Lodge; the Nordic lodge and tubing hill already are closed.
