"If you're not an optimist, you can't be in the ski business," Bogus Basin General Manager Alan Moore told Boise Weekly last November, as the resort prepared for another season.
"Obviously, after the last couple seasons, we're not, like, rolling in the money," said Bogus slope manager Craig Brewer.
Now, Bogus wants to use other people's money to help fund its strategic plan study. A line item for the Boise City Council's Tuesday, June 16 workshop reveals the Bogus Basin Board of Directors has asked the city to "participate in the development of a business strategic plan for the resort," addressing site analysis, market assessment and community feedback. Bogus, which has operated as a nonprofit since 1942, is asking the City Council for $25,000 from the city's general fund to help pay for the Bogus Basin study. The city is also expected to participate in the analysis.
