Idaho is one of the top destinations in the country for skiers, tubers, snowboarders, and anyone who loves the slopes.  The Gem State is blessed with 19 ski areas.  It is not unusual for skiers from around the country and worldwide to visit Idaho's vast ski resorts.  You can check out every ski area in the state by clicking on the ski Idaho link here.

Whether you're new to Idaho or have recently moved here, the chances are that you've heard of Bogus Basin.  The ski resort is one of the few nonprofit ski areas in the country.  The nonprofit status means that 100% are reinvested into facilities.  (FYI, your donations to Bogus are tax-deductible.)   Here's a link to their live webcams.

Bogus has had a renaissance in the last few years thanks to additional snowfall, new management, and endless winter and summer equipment investment.  Our story will continue after a thorough look at a recent trip to Bogus.
