If you live in Idaho and you don't snowboard or ski you're missing out! Idaho has been referred to as a sportsmans paradise, an outdoor oasis if you will. Most of the time you hear those phrases and you think hunting and fishing but I'm far from that. I'm talking about catching a lift to paradise or at least to some fresh powder.

If you were one of the many snowboarders or skiers that spent the weekend at the ski and snow swap last month getting ready for the season you should clear your schedule because the party kicks off this weekend.

Friday Bogus Basin is opening its Terrain park from 10am - 4:30pm and it's FREE... Yes... FREE!!! This is the earliest the mountain has ever opened and it's all thanks to their new snow making equipment that has produced over two feet of snow.

In a press release General Manager Brad Wilson commented "The fact that we are Idaho's first ski area to open terrain shows what a difference that snow making will make at Bogus Basin,".

Think about this for a minute... Friday you can go to work til 5pm or you can take half a day off and take the quick drove up to Bogus for an afternoon of shenanigans on the mountain. If you can't get off of Friday the Terrain park will be open Saturday, Sunday and for the rest of the season.
