Bogus Basin ski resort


Our city welcomes snow lovers from across the country every year. In Boise, you can be eating at a gourmet restaurant or sitting in your hotel’s hot tub, then be skiing on the mountain in less than an hour. The average snowfall in Boise is 18 inches, but our foothills and mountains get much more than that. Winters in the city can be snowy, but it’s not as cold as you might expect. Either way, pack warm and check the weather forecast before you head our way.
