Bogus Basin begins spring hours today. The ski resort will be open from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on weekends and 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

Though the mountain looks sparse from the valley, “we continue to have great spring skiing conditions on the mountain,” interim general manager Nathan Shake stated in a news release.  

Warm temperatures and lack of precipitation haven’t done the mountain any favors. Several runs have closed due to springlike conditions including large, impassable patches of dirt and grass.

Those runs are mostly off the Morning Star chair. At this point, the chair is running primarily to give access to the backside, as runs like Morning Star, Lulu, Silver Queen and Sunshine are too bare to safely ski.

All runs off the Superior high-speed quad remain open and in good shape, but the entire face of the mountain has closed. The Pine Creek quad on the backside remains open and servicing most runs except for Wildcat and Lower Paradise, which have closed due to melted snow.

This season, the mountain received a total of 81 inches. The base is currently 30 inches. The forecast shows highs in the 50s this week and a chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday. No closing date has been announced.
