Pros: 16 miles from downtown, good terrain, outstanding value

Cons: Buckbrush infestation, slow double chairs

I've been skiing Bogus Basin for over 20 years and it's definitely a major asset to our community. Having skied a significant number of resorts west of Colorado, you just can't beat it for its close proximity to downtown Boise and the low cost for a season pass.  The resort has 2,600 ski-able acres and lots of varying terrain, so you have a lot of options to mix it up based on what your in the mood for.  My only major complaint is the lack of high-speed quads, however I hear a new quad will replace chair 3 very soon!   In the summer months, Bogus is a great place to escape the valley heat and enjoy some alpine scenery.  The mountain...

Pros: Convenient, Reasonably Priced, Not Crowded,

Cons: Elevation challenges, but last year boasted 100's of inches and constant percipitation from february through april, I hiked and skied well into may
