Ace received his first snowboard lesson and absolutely fell head over heels for it like I knew he would.

Bogus Basin Ski Resort Weekend Jan 2016 loftandlearn Where's Ace...

He received the best and most thoughtful instruction from Nick who treated him like an individual and catered to his strengths and carefully critiqued his weaknesses as a first timer. He worked with Ace with ease and made him feel comfortable and excited to learn the basics of safety first then actual boarding after he felt sure of Ace’s skills! It was amazing witnessing this cool transformation from not knowing how to put his boot on to taking the ski lift and coming down the hill by himself!

Not only was the ski instructor Nick a great find but the entire staff was spectacular. Especially our new friend Lenny, the ski host who made us feel so welcomed and at ease. He took special care informing us of the ins and outs of the ski resort, all of the many hills, degrees of difficulty and much more!! Thanks Lenny we’ll see you all soon…

History

The area probably got its name during the 19th-century gold rush. Crooks in the hills above Boise City, known as “spelterers”, would make bogus gold dust by heating lead filings with a bit of real gold dust.

Alf Engren, the father of the American powder technique, selected the site for the ski area at Bogus Basin in 1939. Bogus opened to the public 74 years ago in December 1942 with a 500-foot (150 m) rope tow; a 3,300-foot  T-Bar was installed in 1946. In the early 1950s, Bogus had a 30-meter Nordic Ski Jump, designed by Corey Engren and his brother Sverre was Bogus’ ski instructor.
