Boise

Boise is Idaho’s largest city—a bustling hub of commerce, activity, and culture. It also serves as an exceedingly easy location to launch a wonderful ski and ride vacation. The closest ski areas are Sun Valley and Bogus Basin. Both areas are renowned for their great snow, excellent slopes and friendly, laid-back atmosphere.

The Capitol

According to legend, a French speaking guide spotted the verdant river that flows through the town and exclaimed “les bois!” And thus the city of Boise was named. The picturesque and idyllic city is a wonderful place to visit for many reasons such as it has an excellent university and a fun exuberant nightlife, the culture and atmosphere of the city is heavily influenced by the large Basque population, and there is no shortage of activities for outdoor lovers to enjoy.

One of the best things about traveling to a city and skiing near by has to be the local ski and snowboard rental shops. Check out the latest premier brands such as Atomic, Burton, The North Face, Rossignol, Salomon, Smith, and more. Discover the best selections on snow helmets, snow pants, long underwear and socks, snow goggles, snowshoes, avalanche transceivers, etc.—all located in the major city with lower costs than on mountain. In addition, it’s imperative to be prepared on the mountain, with a sometimes harsh and unforgiving environment, having the wrong gear and equipment can be extremely detrimental. Layer, wear sunscreen, and wear one pair of wool socks with well-fitting boots to get the best out of your ski vacation.

Bogus Basin

The closest resort is Bogus Basin, a great place to ski and ride in the winter. Bogus Basin is a mere 2.5 miles from downtown Boise and boasts impressive stats as well. In addition to being minutes from the city, the ski area has 1,782 feet of vertical and spans 2,600 acres. Visitors love the location convenience, the affordable prices, and its great après ski scene.

Getting Here

From Interstate 184, take the River Street Exit and head north. Turn left on Hayes (becomes Harrison Boulevard). Go approximately 2 miles and Harrison Boulevard crosses over Hill Road and becomes Bogus Basin Road. And soon you will arrive-not far at all!
