For the first time in its 76-year history, Bogus Basin will open seven days a week in the summer –- beginning this Friday, June 22.
“Visitors will be able to ride the mountain coaster, take a chairlift ride, go summer tubing, enjoy a meal, rent a mountain bike, and take advantage of all of the area’s new offerings any day of the week,” stated Susan Saad, Director of Community and Customer Relations for the nonprofit recreation area.
“Being open every day in the summer is completely new for us and is a major step in Bogus Basin’s progress toward becoming a year-round destination for recreation and education for the entire community,” said General Manager Brad Wilson. “We’re encouraged by how many people are already coming up for the first time to enjoy the mountain and try out our activities.”
Summer operating hours are from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through the Labor Day weekend.
Tickets for activities can be purchased at the Simplot Lodge.
