Bogus Basin Mountain
At Bogus Basin, your opportunities for outdoor recreation are as expansive as the mountain itself. Bogus Basin is also home to Idaho’s only mountain coaster. What’s a mountain coaster? Exactly 4,330 feet of twisting, turning, and (let’s face it) screaming as you ride through the trees with unbeatable views and an unforgettable ride.
New to Bogus Basin is The Mineshaft Challenge Course! This is an activity for all high-altitude adventure seekers!
