Near the capital city of Boise, in the foothills north of town, lies Bogus Basin Mountain Resort. Only 16 miles north of downtown, Bogus is a convenient resort for visitors and locals alike.

With 2600 acres of skiable, snowboardable terrain, there is fun to be had by all ages and skill levels. Fortunately, the fun at Bogus Basin doesn't end when the sun goes down. Bogus has more night skiing terrain, 165 acres, than any other ski area in the northwestern U.S. Which means no matter what your schedule, the lifts at Bogus Basin will most likely be waiting to assist you in making some tracks.

The resort also offers two downhill lodges plus one Nordic lodge, equipment rentals, cafeterias, lounges, ski school, and day care.

    "The mountain is a 45 minute drive up a very windy road, but it's right at the foothills of Boise so it's a great location. The snow was great, the lifts were plentiful, and everyone at the lodge was very helpful and friendly. A great mountain for snowboarding!"
