What bet­ter way to wel­come 2019 than on the slopes? There are all kinds of fire­works shows and fam­ily-friendly ac­tiv­i­ties at ski re­sorts around Idaho. Here’s what to ex­pect:


You’ve got even more trails to take on at Bo­gus Basin — 88 of the 95 are open, and 41 of them are groomed. All lifts are open ex­cept the Show­case chair lift.

The Thurs­day storm that brought flur­ries to the Val­ley left an inch of snow at Bo­gus, bring­ing the base depth to­tal to 28 inches. More snow fell Satur­day.

Spend the first day of 2019 on the slopes: Bo­gus will host its 3rd an­nual New Year’s Day fire­works show at 6:30 p.m. on Tues­day. Get there early to catch the Torch­light pa­rade and take ad­van­tage of free hot co­coa and cook­ies.
