BOISE -- After several days of scouring winds and limited visibility, Bogus Basin is sporting a creamy new layer of snow.
The resort picked up 6 inches of snow on Sunday afternoon and three more inches early Monday morning. The resort is also expecting a 70 percent chance of snow throughout Monday afternoon. Wind speeds have died down to about 5 mph.
Resort officials announced Monday that Bogus is opening more day terrain and night skiing begins this Wednesday. There is also enough snow to open the tubing hill.
Conditions for both alpine and nordic skiing are much better than when the resort opened on Friday.
"We've had nine inches of new, cold snow over the past 24 hours and the wind is not blowing at gale-force effort -- so that's great," said Peg Havlovik, who works at the Nordic Center at Bogus.
According to the resort's snow report, Bogus has a 21-inch base and is currently operating five chairlifts, including numbers 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and the resort's magic carpet.
However, skiers and snowboarders should expect to encounter plenty of brush, rocks, and other hazards.
Half of the resorts 35K of nordic trails are also open.
The Superior quad chairlift is currently closed due to lack of snow at the lift's base.
Holiday operating hours are from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. daily.
