Great place with nice views and ski resort, recommended for skiing. A lot of houses to rent - mostly in winter/snow period but great views even when no snowing

The drive up is fantastic. If you have never seen the inversion of idaho freeze on the trees you're in for a real shock. Narrow road on the way up, weekends be prepared for a slower drive up.

We are so lucky to have such a great ski area only 17 miles from down town. The lifts are high speed and the terrain is varied. You can be VERY challenged or enloy cruising on a nicely groomed run,

Had a blast at this ski resort. I went tubing and it was very fun. Only recommendation I would have is to salt the parking areas. I didn't have 4 wheel drive and almost slid into another vehicle from the ice.

Bogus is a great ski/snowboard resort. 2 lodges (plus a small yurt open only on weekends). Doesn't seem to matter the day, you can always find good runs at Bogus. Its unique layout means you have tons of options - groomer/park/powder/trees. The lift lines aren't...More

Hi I went to bogus yesterday, was so fantastic, but the problem is the snow was melting. So my question is What happend if the snow it is over? They put artificial snow? Or bogus close??

Bogus does not have artificial snow making capability so if it gets warm enough to melt down to the dirt the resort will close. However, this being Idaho, the weather can change drastically on short notice. Many times in... More
