The ski season is winding down, and ski areas are planning end-of-season activities, events and parties. Here's a look:

BOGUS BASIN

Bogus Basin's "End of Winter Season" party will be 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Sunday, March 30, the last day for regular alpine skiing.

Bogus will have live music from 1 to 5 p.m., featuring Roughed Up Suspects. There will be hunts on the slopes to find ribbons and flowers and redeem them for prizes for skiers and boarders of all ages.

The ski area could remain open during weekends into April, depending on snow conditions.

Nordic skiing will be assessed day-to-day and could close before March 30. For condition updates, go to bogus basin.org.

BRUNDAGE MOUNTAIN

The ski area near McCall will be open daily through April 6, with additional bonus weekends possible if conditions permit.

"Our snow depths and coverage are looking really strong," said April Whitney, resort spokesperson.

Brundage Mountain plans to celebrate the final weekend of full operations with a Pond Skimming Contest and Crazy Days celebration on April 5.

A costume contest and treasure hunt and poker run are planned along with live music from Buckskin Bible Revue.

SUN VALLEY

The last day at Dollar Mountain is April 6 with Bald Mountain scheduled to remain open until April 20, depending on snow conditions.

"Skiing is still great," said Jack Sibbach, resort spokesman.

Racers from around the country are at the resort for the Spring Series.

TAMARACK

Tamarack will close for lift-served on March 30 with its Alpine Replay Vertical Drop Contest.

The skier or boarder who logs the most vertical on that day with the Alpine Replay app wins a season pass for the 2014-15 season. There will be theme days and events until closing. Go to tamarackidaho.com and click on "what's happening."
