BOISE, Idaho — The Morning Star chairlift at the Bogus Basin Recreational Area north of Boise is back up and running.

We reported Monday that a software issue has prompted officials Sunday to temporarily shut down the new high-speed lift.

Representatives from the company that manufactured the chairlift came to Boise Monday and worked late into the night to get the lift operational again.

The lift officially back went on-line as of 10 a.m. Monday.

Bogus Basin opened the Morning Star chairlift in December of last year. The quad lift took skiers to the top of the mountain in three minutes, compared to the normal time of about eleven minutes.
