BOISE COUNTY -- With parts of the mountain closed, folks at Bogus Basin were ready for some snow.

We had big smiles on our face seeing it come in, said Alan Moore, with Bogus Basin.

Moore and the folks at Bogus Basin weren't the only ones who smiled at the new snow. Skier Melanie Granger came to ski for the day and said she enjoyed the runs.

They're really nice, I like the new snow that we got last night and it's super nice, said Granger.

Bogus Basin got three to four inches in Friday's storm.

Russell Wilson came up from Utah to snowboard with his wife and in-laws.

Down there we've been skiing for about six weeks, but coming up here, we had a big storm last night, said Wilson. But it was surprising to see we didn't get much up here, but it's turned into a pretty good day.

Snowboarder Zach Zimlich said he managed to find some powder.

I've lived in the McCall for the last few years so this year I didn't know what to expect from Bogus and I'm actually pretty surprised how well it's turned out, Zimlich said.

The new snow was enough to open chair five and chair six, and kick of night skiing on Sunday, which is good timing with the holidays.

These holidays are about $100,000 days when everything is up and running, said Moore. So those are very, very important to a non-profit.
