Do they have long groomed terains with lots of snow (in early Dec.)? The resort is 16.5 miles north of Boise, ID. Open 10am - 10pm for $40/day
Roundtrip from Orlando, FL to Boise, ID, with 4-nights hotel is $470 + 3 day/night skiing is $120. $470 + $120 = $590.
I learned to ski many years ago at Bogus when I was in Jr High (had season pass/raced). In early Dec. it will be very unlikely that the snow will be very good (on average). It also gets insanely crowded on the weekend. Night skiing is very good (for night skiing)..the views of the Treasure Valley at night are really awsome.
As I remember there were a few long groomers, but most of the groomers were short.
The best skiing was on the backside (Pine Creek, Superior) and when it is open, the steeps off Shaeffer Butte
Bogus can be really, really good, but it sits in the desert, has a low base, so sometimes hurts for snow
sounds like a good deal but beware, you might get what you pay for
