Winter Ranger Program at Bogus Basin

Winter Ranger Programs will be led by Boise National Forest specialists and will focus on forest health, habitats, and winter ecology.

Meet in front of the Frontier Point Nordic Center at Bogus Basin. Tours will last approximately 2 hours.

No pre-registration necessary. The tours will be on moderate terrain. Be prepared for the weather and make sure your equipment is in good working condition.

Plan about an hour to drive up Bogus Basin Road. All wheel drive or snow tires are recommended. Please use the turn outs if you are delaying cars behind you and be patient. Slowing down makes only a few minutes difference in the time to the top.

Backcountry Intro Night

 To get folks ready for skiing in McCall (2/2,2/3) or any other backcountry adventure this season, we'll work on some helpful downhill skills and climbing techniques at Bogus Basin.  Instruction will be provided in Alpine and Telemark turns.  This will be a safe place to practice some skills that can be used later on non-groomed or backcountry areas. We'll meet outside Pioneer Lodge at 6 PM ready to ski!  You will need to purchase a lift ticket if you do not have a season's pass.  Night Tickets are $22.  Your skis need to be equipped with safety straps or ski brakes.

Bogus: XC Ski or Short Stack Snowshoe

All right.  At this point in an ostensibly La Nina year with still no snow, it's rather hard to predict when Bogus will open for XC skiing.  So, will we all have dozens of miles under our skis by New Year's Eve or will we be blowing off the dust that morning?  If the latter, then, yes, this will be a beginners XC ski day.  If the former, well, we'll see who signs up.  No dogs.

Oh, and if Bogus hasn't opened yet, our fallback position is to go up the mountain, put on snowshoes, and go a few miles toward Stack Rock in a "moderate" snowshoe day.  (I call it a "Short Stack.")  One dog max.  Club member dog only.  Eight people max.

Full Moon X-C Ski at Bogus Nordic Center

 

Come ski on lit trails and enjoy live music and food in the Nordic Lodge for this Friday night monthly offering.  There are several trails to ski on and depending on size of group and interest, smaller groups may break off to ski different trails or head back to the lodge.  

$10 for a trail pass and rentals are available.  It's a good way to spend a Friday night!

Nordic ski (or snowshoe) at Bogus Basin

 The snow is great so let's go xc ski at Bogus Basin this Friday.  I'm going to xc ski (classic) but if others want to snowshoe or skate ski let me know.  If there are enough people we could form a snowshoe or skate ski group.  Exact trails will depend on snow conditions and grooming but the current plan is to ski the Nordic Highway, to the Flush trail,  Meadow Trail, Nordic Connector and back to the lodge. These are  all either Green or Blue trails and the total distance will be about 5 miles. We will meet in Boise to car pool and will leave Boise at about 1 pm.

 

Once I know who is interested we can decide what time we return. If people are interested in staying into the evening and doing some more skiing on the lighted trails that is an option.  Contact Patrice at patricedavies1@gmail.com
