Last week was an unannounced hurricane of creative snowboarding in our backyard at the home mountain, Bogus Basin outside of Boise, Idaho. Snowboy Productions teamed up with Bogus Basin Terrain Parks and Corey McDonald to create a unique, one-of-a-kind snowboard park near the top the of the mountain. With one of the worst snow years on record, it was incredible to see what the team was able to put together. Professional snowboarders from all over the country were invited to ride the private park in addition to a select few local riders. The riders filmed all week long and below is the edit of just a sliver of the madness and radness that went down. Derek Weimer put the edit together, fitting with Bogus being the mountain he grew up riding. Just some of the riders list includes the likes of Mike Ravelson, Chris Grenier, Ryan Paul, Boody, Brandon Reis, Ted Borland, Loren Exon, Parker Duke, Bob Abrams, Jill Perkins, Justin Kensiton and many many more. Watch the edit here!
We got up to Bogus Basin this last week and the Bogus Basin Diggers have ben putting in work pushing up all sorts of new features. The jump line is open at the top of Claimjumper with larger jumps after recent storms as well as new rail features in there. Down lower in Mambo Meadows there is a slew of rails to slap AND... A BRAND NEW KICK ASS HIP. This thing is super fun for blasting and planting. Here's some photos of UNHLYFOLK Loren Exon and A.J. Ogden playing around on it.

There's snow in them hills. The Boise, Idaho's winter scene is waking up. With Bogus Basin opening up the last couple weekends, with plans to begin full operations on Monday, we're excited to shake the jitters out and play in the Boise Foothills and surrounding mountains. Here are couple quick shots of the fun on boards from the past weekend with UNHLYFOLK A.J. Ogden and Loren Exon, shot by Yobeat's Brooke Geery who will be wintering in the City of Trees through March.
Bogus Basin wrapped up it's winter season last week. Big thanks to Corey McDonald. Preston Woods and the Bogus Basin Terrain Park crew for making that the place to be for some park fun if you were in the Boise area. Creative Director A.J. Ogden (Juice) and Operations Manager Brad Jameson cruised some hot laps under the sun to celebrate the fun of snowboarding.
