Ski at Bogus Basin

If you’re someone looking to start the new year skiing, Bogus Basin is the place to go! Bogus Basin is a non-profit organization designed to provide accessible and affordable year-round fun in the mountains. You can learn how to ski with group or private lessons, or just hit the slopes if you’re already an experienced skier. The best part is, every fee you pay goes directly back to improving your skiing experience.

Bask in the Sun at the Boise Centre

While this isn’t specifically a water activity, it’s a great place to let your kids cool off while going to an event in the Boise Centre! Site-see in the area around the Boise Centre with concerts and fun activities, you can let your kids play in the water fountain in the center square!

Go Rafting or Fishing

If you’re looking for a wild rafting adventure, check out Middle Fork Wilderness Outfitters! If you want to go whitewater rafting, check them out late May or early June to get to the wildest waters. However, if you prefer to fish, you can head out on your adventure later in the summer, when the fish are ready to bite!
