Bogus Basin Officially CLOSED For The Season
Moments after I sent a text about Bogus Basin still being open, Keke said out loud "There goes Bogus. It's officially closed down now."
That's how fast things are changing right now with everyone wanting to take precautions with coronavirus spreading. One minute something is open, the next it's not. Bogus has this statement at the top of their website:
AT 4:30PM 3/17/20 BOGUS BASIN WILL CLOSE FOR THE 2019-20 WINTER SEASON – PLEASE SEE COVID19 FAQ FOR MORE INFO
So what does that mean for season ticket holders moving forward? On that page, here's what they've got for you:
During this time of unprecedented change, we expect to see high call and email volumes due to this announcement, so please be patient as we work to accommodate all guests.
IF THE CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 PANDEMIC IMPROVES, WILL THE MOUNTAIN RECREATION AREA REOPEN?
We are following guidance from the World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control. If conditions improve, we will reevaluate our operation.
CAN I STILL VISIT BOGUS BASIN MOUNTAIN RECREATION AREA?

While it's a bummer for skiers and boarders (and trust me, I'm one of them- I enjoyed a few ski trips up this season!), I definitely commend Bogus for keeping their staff and customers safe in this unprecedented time.
Looking forward to next season, Bogus!
