I can't emphasize how amazing Bogus Basin is. The best snow and backcountry trails are on the Pine Creek lift. They made huge investments last year in snow machines, and in replacing the last slow chair lift bringing the mountain high speed quad lift count to 4. You can't beat the value anywhere in the country. We are truly blessed to have this gem in our backyard.
