Bogus Basin announces Black Friday opening, weekend operations

Good news for Boise skiers: Bogus Basin announced today that it’ll have a partial opening on Friday and remain open through Sunday for the holiday weekend. Both the No. 1 Deer Point and the Coach chairs will be running, and a terrain park will be in operation in Stewart’s Bowl. Nordic skiing also will open on portions of the upper trails at the Nordic Center.

“We are very excited to have an early opening for the holiday weekend,” said Brad Wilson, Bogus Basin’s new general manager. “This is a great opportunity for Bogus Basin and the Treasure Valley. We are hoping for a very successful season this year.”

Bogus reported receiving more than 25 inches of snow in December; it’ll open with an 18-inch base. Four snowmaking guns also have been operating for the past several weeks, to fill in where needed. The resort plans to operate weekends-only until there’s enough snow for more lift and trail openings in December; there’s more info here. For the opening weekend, adult lift tickets will be discounted to $35, and children under 12 will be $20; the Nordic Center also will have reduced rates.
