We went here after we had taken our big trip to Whistler. When we drove up to Bogus Basin, I thought it was a really pretty drive. I could hardly believe that we were about to go up to a place that actually had snow, but there it was....even more so than Whistler! We were so bummed about this, because when we drove up there, we had the emotional let-down of a bummer of a Whislter trip (too icy, limited snow, and I hurt my knee falling down the mountain and being toboganned off after hitting an icy rock). So we decided to go into the little lodge there, and drown our sorrows (well, not mine, as I was pregnant). The lodge was pretty old and beat up, lots of years of hardcore skiing under it. This is a place where the kids of any income level go to learn to ski, not a nice resort area for the rich like Whistler. Really cheap prices too. My partner was a ski instructor here, and I think he really misses the old hometown haunt. Easy to get to from Boise, it's just a short drive up a mountain from downtown. Nice windy drive up there too, if you don't have a daredevil driver in your car!
