Bogus Basin officials announced Thursday that the nonprofit ski and recreation area north of Boise will open its Pepsi Gold Rush Tubing Hill, Frontier Point Nordic Lodge and a non-lift served (hiking only) terrain park near the Deerpoint Chairlift #1.

“We’re continuing to make snow daily and anticipate opening more terrain next weekend,” said Bogus Basin General Manager Brad Wilson. “If the current weather pattern continues, we expect to have the Coach lift open -- along with our two new beginner conveyer lifts -- on December 16th.”
Bogus will wrap up a yearlong celebration of its 75th Anniversary on December 22nd with a planned birthday party and various family-friendly activities, officials said.
