December 1, 2017 (BOISE, ID)– With the community eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2017-18 ski and snowboard season, Bogus Basin announced today that it will open a terrain park on the Pepsi Gold Rush Tubing Hill on December 2-3. The nonprofit recreation area began using portable fan guns to make snow on Monday night, and there is now enough coverage for enthusiasts to kick off the season this weekend. The run is designed specifically for experienced park skiers and riders.
“We are as excited as everyone about opening, and our snowmaking has given us this great opportunity for our pass holders and others,” said Bogus Basin General Manager, Brad Wilson. The features will include two lines with rails and boxes. Guests will be among the first to use a new 560 foot conveyer lift to transport them up the hill.
The terrain park will operate Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Tickets are $10 for all ages, and may be purchased only at the Pepsi Gold Rush Tubing Hill office located on the mountain. There is no cost for season pass holders. For information, call: 208-332-5162 on Saturday, and 208-332-5350 on Sunday.
