Snowstorm puts Idaho ski resorts closer to opening day

BOISE - Ski resorts in central and southern Idaho got a welcome helping of fresh snow overnight, putting them one step closer to opening day.

Bogus Basin reports nine inches of snow since Saturday thanks to colder temperatures and plenty of precipitation moving through the area in the last day. Officials have not yet determined when the recreation area will fully open to skiers and snowboarders, but the terrain park did open over the weekend.

Brundage Mountain got a foot of new snow at the bottom of the hill, and about 14 inches at the summit. Officials say they now have a 30-inch base on the upper mountain and a 14-inch base at the summit.

"Still not enough to announce Opening Day, but a great rebound from the Pineapple Express that hit Thanksgiving week," said Brundage spokesperson April Whitney.

Tamarack Resort reports nine inches of fresh snow over the weekend. The resort is planning to open for the season on Friday, Dec. 8, conditions permitting.

Sun Valley, which opened on Thanksgiving Day, reported just one inch of snow since Sunday morning.
