Bogus begins work to upgrade lodge in time for ski season

Idaho AGC Going Up

Another project is underway at the Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area.

Crews took to the Pioneer Lodge in recent weeks for a series of upgrades. As BoiseDev first reported in March of 2017, upgrades to the so-called “upper” lodge are part of the resort’s master plan.

The plan outlines new restrooms, new interior and exterior finishes, and improvement to the bar and lounge area. Some of the changes will help make the lodge more suited to special events.

In a Facebook post, Bogus Basin officials said work is underway both on the exterior of the building as well as the new kitchen and bar on the 3rd floor.

Construction crews also are installing a new high-speed detachable lift to connect the base area with the Pioneer Lodge area.

The JR Simplot (or lower lodge) also will see upgrades in coming years as part of the master plan.

Bogus invested nearly $20 million in mountain operation upgrades in the last three years, according to resort officials.
