Please join us for this month’s Fettuccine Forum with author Eve Chandler and Brad Wilson, general manager of Bogus Basin.

The duo will address the development of Bogus Basin, an effort driven by community volunteers and Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) members. Boise Junior Chamber of Commerce members applied and received a Work Projects Administration (WPA) grant that funded 195 CCC members to build a road to Bogus Basin, install water and sanitation systems, and create ski runs. Bogus Basin’s non-profit status has provided affordable and accessible winter recreation to residents of all ages. Bogus Basin has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual donations and scholarships to schools, churches, community groups, and nonprofits like Big Brothers Big Sisters, Special Olympics, Recreation Unlimited, and Junior High and High School Race Programs. Brad Wilson will address the future of Bogus Basin, including plans for year-round activities. The presentation will include a five-minute video.
