Intensify Your Recreation

 If your idea of recreation requires being outside, then Idaho will exceed your expectations. Surrounding the valley are hundreds of miles of public lands; from forest to high-desert, hills to mountains, calm streams teeming with trout to varied ranges of whitewater waiting for a kayak or raft. Whether you love camping in remote areas or enjoy the amenities of well-stocked campgrounds Idaho has it. Idaho is known for fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, mountain biking, dirt biking, off-road overlanding and so much more. The outdoors is so much a part of our DNA that you’ll occasionally see men in business suits putting a fishing line into the Boise River during a lunch break or fishing reels changing hands at church. Yep, folks in Idaho take their outdoor playtime seriously.


Alpine Skiing & Snowboarding, a pastime enjoyed by millions of people annually, involves traveling uphill on a ski lift followed by skiing/riding down one of the mountain’s many trails. Ski lifts can be anything from a conveyor-lift to a highspeed chairlift. Bogus Basin is located just 16 miles from Boise and provides opportunities to affordably recreate for over 700,000 locals. Our community mountain has 10 lifts serving 80 runs, across 2,600 acres of terrain, providing 1,800 TRUE vertical feet of skiing. Typically the season runs early December through mid-April. Early and late season hours can change, so please check the Conditions & Webcams. During the non-winter season, Bogus Basin is open for outdoor recreation. The base area is home to several activities, such as rock climbing, bungee trampoline, summer tubing, mountain biking, and hiking.
