BOISE -- Skiers and snowboarders hit the slopes, ramps and rails at Bogus Basin Saturday as the resort unveiled its new terrain park.

The 50-acre park is expected to be a hit -- it has a new sound system, new features and runs from Shakers Ridge to the Bogus Creek Trail.

The Mountain Dew Terrain park is wide open, said Bogus Basin general manager Alan Moore. We've got about 20 features. We've had so many kids, young boarders and skiers up here today just having a great time.

The terrain park was months in the making, and Saturday the park was officially opened to the public. Moore said their aim was not to draw more people, but give Bogus regulars something else to enjoy.

This is something that we thought about early this summer, how to make the experience a little bit better for boarders and skiers. And we started putting this together, he said.

KTVB caught up with snowboarder Tommy Barker after he finished going through the terrain park. Barker said the new park a big improvement, and that he'll definitely be back.

The park was made possible through a $100,000 J.A. and Katherine Albertson Foundation grant.
