Don't spend your vacation getting there; spend it skiing.
We really like skiing and boarding. But that doesn't mean we want to spend our whole vacation just getting to the mountain. Our Ski Areas Near Airports Map will help you maximize your time on the slopes.
Bogus Basin is one of only a handful of non-profit ski resorts in the States, which is why its website ends in an o-r-g rather than a c-o-m. And while we find web addresses fascinating, you might like Bogus Basin because it's about 20 miles from Boise Airport.
Now just because the resort is operated by a skiers collective doesn't mean it's shabby. An 1,800 foot vertical drop allows for long, groomed cruisers, and a broad swath of terrain is designed for glade skiing. Bogus Basin catches about 225 inches of snow a year, meaning it usually stays open well into April.
Full-day tickets are a reasonable $46, and Bogus Basin stays open till 10 pm, so you can still get hours of skiing in even if your flight doesn't arrive until the afternoon; night passes are just $20.
