It used to get skiers up the hill at Bogus Basin. Now, it will help hikers get up the hill at Camels Back.
Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area repurposed cables from its old Morning Star chairlift to Boise Parks and Recreation for use as a handrail on a new set of stairs at Camels Back Park.
Crews ripped out the Morning Star lift shortly after the ski season closed, and found creative uses for parts. In addition to the handrail-cable, it auctioned off the chairs in an online auction. Proceeds went back to the non-profit resort.
