Your favorite nonprofit and long-beloved ski hill is gearing up for a new season. While downhill skiing is still on hold until the winter snows truly begin to fly, there’s still some fun to be had. 

Bogus is offering tubing and Nordic skiing. A non-lift served terrain park for intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders has been built near the Deerpoint Chairlift. Access is available by hiking, and is free of charge.

Opening tomorrow is Idaho's First Alpine Mountain Coaster! 4,330 Feet of a twisting and turning  track that winds you through the woods. This coaster can reach a speed of 25 mph and heights of 40 plus feet in the air. The cool thing about the Alpine Mountain Coaster is you control your speed, press the levers all the way down for maximum velocity or pull back on the levers for a scenic ride down the mountain. Each cart can hold 2 riders, and operates in the winter and summer seasons! 

The Bogus crew is making new snow daily and say that if the current weather pattern continues, the Coach lift, along with two new beginner conveyer lifts, could be open by mid-December.

Bogus Basin opened to the public in December, 1942. The area most likely got its name during the 19th century gold rush from local con men who made fake gold dust out of lead.
