Last year, Bogus Basin didn't have enough snow for a full opening until mid-December.  Could this be a sign of an earlier opening date in 2016? 

The National Weather Service in Boise tweeted a picture of snow that fell at Bogus Basin overnight.  Sure, it's just a dusting but the NWS went on to say that more snow for the Boise Mountains is expected on Tuesday, October 18th.

Bogus's latest opening date came in 2011, when chair lift didn't start operations until January 17th. In 2015, the resort had enough snow to open for weekend only skiing on Black Friday. Over the past 47 years, the earliest Bogus Basin has opened was mid-November.
