I love bogus! It’s so conveniently located and the season passes are so cheap compared to other places (if you buy them at the right time they’re even cheaper - Presidents’ Day sale). And you get a lot of perks (powder alliance and a couple free days at other local resorts). I’ve only skied a few resorts but I love the laid back feel and acceptance. Never felt judged for being a fat girl skiing (at a diff resort I got told maybe I shouldn’t be skiing this Black Diamond... smoked him on the way down, the judgmental prick). Off piste skiing is not only allowed but encouraged if you know what you’re doing. Does the place have a fancy lodge or accommodations?? Definitely not, but who needs it when you spend all your time on the slopes anyways. Super excited for this season with a new quad lift and snowmaking abilities.
