Letter: Bogus Basin

Season pass sales help keep Bogus Basin lifts running, slopes groomed, and lodges open and operating — revenue critical to the well-being of one of America’s few community-owned ski recreation areas. And nationwide, Bogus Basin’s season pass is one of skiing’s best values. Sure, this was a bad snow year, and there will be more, but Mother Nature also blesses us with hoarfrost crisp winter mornings with snorkel-deep powder, brilliant blue skies and luxurious sunshine.

Nothing beats cabin fever like an exhilarating day of skiing, boarding, snowshoeing or tubing high above the inversion, bathed in balmy sunshine and surrounded by a scintillating horizon that rings like crystal when you run your finger ’round the rim of the sky — incredible days when you come home dog-tired, bone-weary and feeling better than ever before in your life.

Bogus is developing exciting new summer programs, too, activities with year-round, lifelong benefits and learning for kids, families and individuals from all walks of life. But to continue the outdoor winter fun, exercise and entertainment Bogus has provided since the 1940s, this invaluable community asset relies on our season pass purchases.

Have you bought yours?
