It's hard to let go of summer: warm evenings spent outdoors, adventurous days rafting rivers or cruising mountain bike trails, the feeling of freedom and possibility. On Saturday, Sept. 5, Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area is giving the Treasure Valley a chance to squeeze one more summer day out of 2015 during Music on the Mountain.
The day includes live music at the brand new St. Luke's Don Scott Memorial Amphitheater featuring blues/rock band The Fabulous Blue Rayz 1-3:45 p.m., followed by low-key, toe-tapping jazz from the Ben Burdick Trio 4-7 p.m.
For active souls, Bogus Basin will run the Deerpoint chairlift 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m., providing scenic rides and mountain bike shuttling. A single ride on the lift costs $10; a day pass is $25. Local vendors and retailers will be on site and the Simplot Lodge will be open for food and a full bar all day.
