The Boise Trifecta

If your spring break plans include a drive to Boise this month, we recommend packing every kind of outdoor play equipment you can fit. If you plan ahead, you just might be able to pull off a trifecta of outdoor recreation, all just outside Boise’s downtown. Consider starting your day up at the community-owned Bogus Basin Mountain Resort, where hundreds of acres of skiing and snowboarding are available until mid-April. After a few runs, head back down the 15 miles to Boise, where several public golf courses are greening up nicely as spring comes on. After a few holes, you can complete a Boise trifecta by taking a walk along the 25-mile Greenbelt Trail or, if you’ve got it in you (and you had room in the car) you can go for a run or a mountain bike ride on some of Boise’s hundreds of miles of singletrack trails. Several trailheads are accessible throughout the city.  

New Mountain Biking Video

The Film crews from PinkBike.com descended on the Boise area last summer and the fruit of their labors has just dropped. A new seven-minute video and detailed article distributed by the website’s 462,000 viewers shows what mountain bike enthusiasts have known for years: there’s something for everyone, and a lot of it. Local mountain bike stars Braydon Bringhurst, Kyle Warner & April Zastrow take viewers on a tour of the best riding in the area. From technical, rocky trails, to fast singletrack, to public bike parks, the video shows how the Boise area's strong investment in mountain bike infrastructure has yielded amazing riding for all kinds of bike riders.
