and I suppose you guys would much rather ski at Tamarack, that lives up to it's reputation of, well I'm not sure what it has to live up to.
As for me, my experience with Brundage has been just the opposite of yours, I'll leave it at that.
Proton: As for Bogus it's wonderful for the community of skiers here in this valley, yeah the food may not be so good, but maybe if you're concerned with the you wouldn't mind them making season passes $399 again like they used to be. Whaddya want, fancy meals like Tamarack has, $18 Kobe Beef burgers?
The variety of terrain offered at a ski hill only 8 miles (as the crow flies) from the city is great not to mention the fact that they are open at night. The management at Bogus, although I've questioned some of their motives and purchases at times, has seen that place through thick and thin and perhaps this year has an opportunity to come out ahead in the books.
Yeah the snow quality CAN be marginal, but some years (i don't know how long you've been here) have been exceptional, everything fills in and it's a fun place to ski, usually the secret stashes stay a while after a storm, but IF you know where to ski there can be some really good snow. The layout of Bogus is actually not too bad given what they have to work with, yeah you have to hop on a few cattracks here and there to get to "cut" runs, but again you can usually avoid cattrack skiing IF you know where to ski, just look lines are all over the place there.
