Hello! I raced for BBSRA (now BBSEF) as a child and my dad was the head coach. We went back for their 50th anniversary celebration in 2017. One day I hope to get back and ski Bogus again. Welcome to Pugski!

Hey there! Today would've been a great day to return. Bogus had a good foot last night.

I raced for my junior high but that's where my career ended. That was in the late 80s and I switched to snowboarding in high school. It was the new "cool" thing and I jumped with everyone else. Took a few years off and now getting back into skiing with my youngest son and still snowboard sometimes with my oldest boy. We spend as many weekends in McCall as possible and will be picking up our season passes this weekend.

Cheers

I was a freshman at meridian high 89-90. Went to Lake Hazel for Junior High and was the first or second class of freshman at Meridian. Seemed weird to be in a high school since all of the Boise freshman were still in junior high.

First time at Bogus next week.
Are you going up during the week or weekend?

I was a 7th grader at Meridian Junior High in 82. Junior High kids driving, never got used to that. Loved skiing at BB.

Nice! Weekdays are sooo much better. Hope you have a blast. Are you new to the area or sport?
Just passing through on a ski trip. Been riding since 1973. Meanwhile in Central Oregon we are getting hammered with at least 4 feet in the front yard. Figures I'm leaving on a trip.

Hi there Mr wave. However late this might be, welcome to Pugski.

I learned to ski at Bogus in the mid - 70's. I went to Meridian High from 73-77. My little brother went to Lake Hazel. We lived near Amity and 5 Mile. Small world, eh? The last time I was at Bogus Basin was in 1998. I took my family to the condo's up at the top of #2 lift during the Winter Olympics, and watched the Herminator go upside down on the TV in our room in the men's downhill.
