DeepskierBogus kinda sucks. Its a fucking hour drive to park way far away, the lodge is run down as shit and the mountain is flat. Bogus can be fun once in a while just because there are some sick stumps and trees to launch off of, but mostly not worth the trip
you just gotta approach it with the right attitude. if you go there expecting to be blown away by their park, terrain, and snow quality you're gonna leave disappointed. but if you go there expecting to fuck around, have some beers, and slalom through gapers it's actually pretty damn fun. it's all about your attitude
OP, this will probably relate to you. I moved here from the east coast (pennsylvania), so similar mountains to yours in quebec. Coming from that, Bogus was a fun local hill that doesn't require a full day commitment. So on days when you're kinda strapped for time you can still get to the mountain and get your fix, then go about the rest of your daily responsibilities. Weekdays are fun, very small crowds. Weekends are a completely different story. Judging by a lot of the other posts, most of the people commenting here are probably in high school, and are stuck to only skiing weekends or nights. That really changes your perspective.
Bogus for weekdays and when you don't have a full day to commit to skiing. Brundage for weekdays and pow dumps, and for keeping it on the cheap. Sun Valley for park and everything else
Just want to really hammer this home: it's all about your attitude. I used to be one of the Bogus haters, like really hard. Then a friend helped me see I was taking it too seriously. Ever since then I've had very few sub-par days at Bogus
