Kicking off this season right

Time to kick off the 2017-2018 season of Bogus Basin SnowSchool and what better way than with a POTLUCK?! Veteran volunteers, we'll be meeting on Wednesday, November 15th to get together, catch up, share some laughs, preview the upcoming season, sign up for training and leadership dates, and super importantly...share some delicious food. Please bring a plate/bowl and personal cutlery. If you are a returning volunteer and would like details please shoot me an email at ilyse@bogusbasin.org and I'll fill you in. 

If you are a veteran volunteer and are unable to join, or are new to SnowSchool, keep checking this page as I'll update it with our upcoming training events.

Looking forward to another exciting (and potluck-filled) season of SnowSchool!

Inaugural Snow-ga SnowSchool Fundraiser

Long time SnowSchool supporter, Edna, led a group of us through snow-ga (snowshoe yoga). This unique event was a fundraiser for Bogus Basin SnowSchool. The weather was beautiful and the forest was peaceful. Thanks everyone who made it to this fun event and for supporting SnowSchool. Many thanks to our snow-ga instructor, Edna! If you missed out this year, we hope you'll join us next season.
