Skiing at Bogus Basin, Throughout January

Bogus Basin

If there is one thing that is necessary to have a great time in January, skiing would have to be on the list. There is nothing like taking a ride down the slopes on skis, a snowboard, or inner tube and the best place for Treasure Valley Residents to do this is, of course, Bogus Basin.

This local favorite is home to some of the best skiing in Idaho along with one of the only night skiing locations in the state. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoor beauty of Idaho, so be sure to wax up your skis or board and get ready for some fun!

From the looks of things, this year is going to be pretty fun. Boise is one of the nation’s most attractive cities right now, and with all the fun things we have to do here, it is no wonder why. However, it is important to know that this isn’t even half of all the great activities that are available to Boise and Treasure Valley residents throughout the month of January. If you are at a loss for things to do while you are here though, a quick Google search will show that there are plenty more things to enjoy here in our City of Trees.  You can also send us an email!
