BOISE, Idaho — The clock is now ticking for skiers and snowboarders to get their last fix of snow at Bogus Basin before their 2018-2019 season comes to a close on Sunday night.
Bogus opened their season on Dec. 6 and the general manager of Bogus Basin, Brad Wilson, says this season has been phenomenal.
Wilson says they're not closing for the season due to the lack of snow, they're closing because people are transiting from winter activities to summer ones.
With Sunday being their last day for the season, Bogus is making sure they end the season with flair.
"We have the PBR blue ribbon hunt, where we hide a bunch of ribbons all around the resort and you can go out and find them and then turn them in to enter a raffle," he said. "If you get to entries that's two ribbons and we have all kinds of gifts and fun stuff, including a pair of skis and we're also going to have a live band, so we're going to finish with a bang."
Wilson says they're already looking forward to next season. They're going after taking six to eight weeks off and get back to work, he says.
Bogus will reopen on Memorial Day and be open every weekend after that until June.
They'll open seven-days a week during the third week of June for all of the summer excitement and activities that they have lined up, which includes the mountain coaster, climbing tower, and mountain biking and hiking.
This season has been a record year for the number of visitors and total revenue for Bogus.
Wilson says he wants to thanks everyone that went to Bogus this season because these are the kinds of seasons you dream about when you're in this business.
