Bogus Basin wants your opinions
The mountain recreation area has launched an online survey to find out how it can better serve the community, according to Alan Moore, Bogus Basin general manager.
It takes about eight to 10 minutes, and a link can be found on the main page of bogusbasin.org.
Youll be asked what activities youve pursued at Bogus, such as snow tubing, mountain biking, Nordic skiing, alpine skiing or snowboarding.
There are questions on how well you think the mountain is run, what you might want to see in the future, and how familiar you are with its switch to a nonprofit organization.

Get a permit to cut your own Christmas tree
Permits are on sale at district offices of the Boise and Payette national forests and the Interagency Visitors Information Center, located at 1387 S. Vinnell Way in Boise.
Stores in area towns near the national forests also sell Forest Service tree permits. All permits are valid through Dec. 24.
Each permit allows one tree to be cut, with a limit of three permits per family. For both national forests, the cost of a permit for one tree is $10, and the maximum height of a tree is 12 feet. Permits are valid on both forests.
You can get information on where trees may be cut, any restrictions and helpful tips when you get your permit.
