Bogus Basin Honors Military With Discount
Our dear groundhog friend has lied. On February 2, Phil did not see his shadow which got all of us at MVDC super excited. We broke out our sunglasses, hit the gym and got ready for Spring Break. Only to be blindsided by a March snowstorm that seized most of the eastern part of the United States. Way to go, Phil.
As part of the military family, we are accustomed to making lemonade out of lemons and our favorite thing to do on a snow day is to hit the slopes! Continuing our Small Business Saturday series, today's feature is Bogus Basin in Boise, Idaho! This non-profit, charitable organization was created by the Boise community over 60 years ago. Today's Board of Directors is an all volunteer team that employees a professional staff to manage operations. The organization employs over 600 seasonal employees each winter.
66 years ago, Bogus Basin was one ski hill. Today, the ski area encompasses 7 chairlifts, 3 lodges, trails, night skiing routes and hosts 300,000 skiers each winter. Their vision to "be the most treasured and best-supported community asset in the Treasure Valley" is becoming more of a reality with each passing ski season.
Bogus Basin offers a 50% discount on lift tickets, rental equipment, group lessons and season passes for retired military personnel, active duty military and their dependents. Here's the fine print - the discount for tickets are offered at the JR Simplot Lodge ticket office and is only available at the time of purchase. Any dependent over the age of 10 must have a valid military ID.
Thanks to Bogus Basin for honoring our military service men and women and for helping us all make the best of a spring snow. Our only recommendation is to honor our veterans with a valid Veteran ID card with the same discount. They paid their time and are just as deserving.
At MVDC, we continue to be grateful for those companies that honor our military and their families through deals and discounts.
