The big news from Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area this season is the “first ever” top-to-bottom terrain park on the front side of the mountain.
“There’s an extreme demand for it,” J.J. McLeod, Bogus Basin director of mountain events, told me today as we toured the park's area. It was snowing a little, yaaa!!!
The 50-acre terrain park will be located on skier’s right off Shaker Ridge and will be spread out through the Cascade, Mambo Meadows and Sunset runs.
A terrain park base area and yurt is being build just about 50 yards up the mountain from the base area of the Showcase Chairlift.
You can read more about it in the Thanksgiving Day edition of Idaho Outdoors where we have our Ski and Winter Recreation Guide.
Look for it and think snow.
