Bogus officials announced earlier today that the recent storms have dumped roughly 2 feet on the mountain, enough to allow for a front side opening. As of Thanksgiving Day, chairlifts 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, Easy Rider and the magic carpet will be open to take skiers and boarders to the powder.
The hill will be open Thursday-Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and—even better—day passes will be discounted to just $25 until the rest of the mountain can open.
Additionally, the Nordic Center will be open from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through the holiday weekend and passes will cost $12.
Elsewhere in Idaho, Sun Valley Resort will open its slopes on Thanksgiving day as well.
Brundage Mountain in McCall has yet to announce an opening date, but with storms rolling in, it's only a matter of time.
