Best Ski Resort in Idaho

Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area

Readers' Picks

It's not difficult to take personal ownership of Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area, the popular ski hill just 16 miles north of Boise. For natives, that comes in the form of memorable winter afternoons spent mastering early ski and snowboard lessons. But Boiseans stake a bigger claim on Bogus Basin than nostalgia--as a nonprofit endeavor, visitors can turn all that passion for the place into real ownership through charitable giving, too. Nothing makes you feel better about that tax write-off than when you're riding a high-speed quad lift for one more run before apres-ski--except if it's one more run down the mountain under the glow of the night-skiing lights. bogusbasin.org.
