February 14, 2019 (BOISE, ID)– Mother Nature has been especially kind to Bogus Basin over the past several days. The nonprofit recreation area has received 43 inches of snow during the recent storm activity, and more is on the way. “We didn’t see the warmup that was expected for today, which resulted in 10 inches of new snow overnight and this morning,” said General Manager, Brad Wilson. “Our base depth is now 77 inches.”

The timing is good for individuals interested in purchasing a pass to the area for the 2019-20 winter season. Bogus Basin’s annual sale begins Monday and runs through the end of the month. New season pass holders can use their pass for the rest of this season and all of next year.
