Best Place to Ski and Mountain Bike at the Same Time

Bogus Basin, with earliest closing ever

Staff Pick

It was a sad day for the skiers, snowboarders and Bogus Basin season pass holders when the ski resort announced its earliest closing ever this spring. After an unseasonably warm February and a dry March, the nonprofit ski area was forced to throw in the towel March 14. Last year, the mountain closed April 13, and the earliest close date in recent years was March 22, 1992. Even in the early spring, parts of the mountain—especially under the Morning Star chair lift—were so bare, bike trails were exposed. Because the resort has started feeling the effects of climate change, it has launched a feasibility study suggesting more summer activities are probably in Bogus' future.
