The Bogus Basin board appointed Brad Wilson as the iconic ski resort’s general manager effective Nov. 9.

The board selected Wilson after a months long search.

“Brad has the experience and the vision that make him the right person to take this important role in the Treasure Valley community,” said Tyler Wymond, chair of the search committee.

Wilson has more than 30 years of experience in management, marketing, sales, and master planning within the ski and hospitality industry. He was general manager of Diamond Peak Ski Resort at Lake Tahoe. He also worked as the president and COO of Catalina Island Resort Services, among other posts.

“This is a great place and a great area. Bogus Basin has a rich history and some unique opportunities for growth and improvement. There is a lot of very positive energy building throughout the Valley for Bogus Basin. I am looking forward to some really fun times coming up,” said Wilson in a press release.

“Bogus Basin is an integral part of who we are as a community,” said Boise Mayor Dave Bieter. “I’m pleased that our hometown recreation area will be led into the future by someone of Brad’s caliber and breadth of experience. I look forward to hearing his thoughts on expanding Bogus’ scope and role in our community’s recreation opportunities.”

Bogus Basin, a nonprofit organization, opened in 1942. It’s located just over 16 miles north of Boise and operates under a special use permit with the Boise National Forest.
