Skiers and boarders will have one last opportunity to hit the slopes at Bogus Basin this coming weekend.

The nonprofit recreation area north of Boise announced Wednesday that the Superior Chairlift (#3) will operate from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday for a bonus weekend. 

The Superior Chairlift services intermediate and advanced terrain only -- there will be no beginner or low-intermediate terrain accessible to guests. “We are excited to make this happen as a special thank you to our season pass holders and the community for a great season” said Bogus Basin General Manager Brad Wilson. “The coverage and spring skiing conditions remain very good on the backside of the mountain.” 

On Monday, mountain personnel began clearing snow out the base area, the first step toward a major enhancement project that will include installation of a mountain coaster, outdoor seating plaza, climbing wall, summer tubing and other activities.  Many of the amenities are scheduled to open to the community at a July 5th Anniversary Summer Kickoff Celebration.

On the Bonus Weekend:

-Pioneer Lodge will be open for full food and beverage service.

-Simplot Lodge will be open for locker access only from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

-Midweek passes will be accepted.

-The Rental Shop will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

-Live music will be performed outside Pioneer Lodge on Saturday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
