Sleigh Ride ~ Bogus Basin Outfitters, Boise Mountain Range, Idaho

Standard

The road up was nasty, as I suspected… even nastier (quite icy) coming back down. Especially when the guy ahead of us stopped dead in the middle of the road (but I couldn’t get mad, ’cause he stopped for a deer who was considering crossing just then).

BUT! The ride was soooo fun!  We had a great time. It’s been awhile since we did something fun, so it was especially memorable.

The ride up as it started to get snowy…

This rock is known as “The Buffalo”… it’s a halfway marker point –

My windshield wiper froze up, so we couldn’t get the window clear –

The Nordic ski lodge, where we waited for the sleigh to arrive –

Brrrrr……

It was getting dark by the time we arrived at the little cabin, so I have my camera on a pretty long exposure time, and I am not good at holding still! So, these aren’t great pics, but give you an idea how it looked, anyway.

Looking out from the hot chocolate shack, where we had a nice wood fire and – well, hot chocolate!

Super, super fun! Everyone in our group enjoyed it; adults, teenagers, and the little ones. I highly recommend it!

  1. Beautiful! The only snow we have had around here was in October when we had massive power outages. It was 58 degrees today! Just not right.

    • It really is pretty up there! We haven’t had much snow at all here in the valley, but we did get some in the mountains. We really rely on the mountain snowpack for our summer irrigation, so it’s kind of a big deal. It may be a pretty dry summer this year…

  2. We don’t get snow at all so it looks fabulous to me, a romantic winter wonderland especially the shots with the horses, I can’t begin to imagine what it is like to live in a area where it snows in winter.
