I have called their ticket office 150 times this morning to try to buy tickets because their website isn’t working. In the last 150 calls, I have never spoken to anyone. Also the snow at bogus is frequently very icy so you are better off driving a little further to ski somewhere with better snow. ... Full Review

Night skiing starts at 3pm, till 10pm. The night pass holders can get a full hour on the Pine Creek chair in daylight, then ski Superior lift till 9:30pm on the backside. The longest lines of the day are frontside chairs at 4 to 5pm. Strange! The snowmaking has helped start the season and made the south facing runs better. Bogus road car lines are in both directions as riders decide which hours they are using the mountain. My season pass day/night costs less than 3 days at many big resorts! Thanks ... Full Review

Really cool place. We are Texan, New Mexico skiers looking for something different and we were blown away. Really nice and old school but with quick lifts. Lots of variety. Love it. We all rated it better than Sun Valley for skiing. You better come prepared if you stay there. ... Full Review

Bogus used to be a great family place to visit, but in recent years the new management has ruined it. Now it's overpriced, undeserved and no more fun. If you complain you will get a threatening email from the general manager Brad Wilson. He is an example of how horrible the lack of customer service is, and how they only care about money. Don't waste your time or money, go to one of the less expensive and better resorts. ... Full Review

I love how close bogus is to where I live. I can be their in an hours drive. The price of a season pass is reasonably priced or all the skiing you want to do. ... Full Review

Always have a good time here but I am also always annoyed by the imature staff listening to rock music. Seems unprofessional for A bogus basin employee to listen to punk rock in a family environment. This isn't all of the staff, just a few.... Full Review

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.... Full Review

It’s not huge, but we went the Saturday after Christmas; probably the busiest day of the year. At most, we waited for about 5 minutes to get on a lift. Bogus is 45 minutes from home. The Simplot lodge is aging and due for a renovation. If the wind cooperates, the patio with fireplaces is very nice to chill. My wife doesn’t hit the slopes anymore but she would like a nice place to hang out. ... Full Review
