Close drive from Boise, night skiing, lots of terrain, family friendly
Not the best snow, frequent late season openings
While I have ridden Bogus a lot, I am not blind to its faults. It has average snow. Many icy spots. It is also all to common for Bogus to open very late in the season in comparison to other mountains. Now somone stated that the road is bad but I diasagree. The road is completely paved and is usually plowed and salted all the way to the top. There are only a few icy spots. I have made it to the top in a 2WD hatchback many times.
The good things about Bogus are it's proximity to Boise, about 45 minutes drive. It is very family friendly with good classes for all age groups. It also has some great nordic runs. In addition it also has most of the mountain open for night skiing, under normal snow pack conditions. They also offer a season pass for a great price if you buy it early in the year.
