BOGUS Ski Club Inc. Established 1938 – A Social Organization for Adults Based on Recreation
Time is just speeding by for me. Sometimes I don’t know
which way is up. I bought a camper in August and managed
to squeeze in 4 weekend trips with it this fall. The fall
weather, an Indian summer, made that possible. But now
it is time to winterize. The icky weather is finally here. It
has been raining and cold all day.
But I can’t complain. A bunch of us, some club members
and others, are leaving for Puerto Vallarta in a couple
days. We will be there when this Mogul comes out, and
I am so excited! I am sure we will have lots of stories for
next month’s Mogul. Some of us will miss the Ski Swap,
darn! But I really don’t need to buy anything this year. The
Warren Miller movie is fast approaching in mid-November.
Then in December, the winter festival we are co-sponsoring
with Bogus Basin in Hyde Park and the Christmas party.
And don’t forget the Boise State football game tailgates.
They are always fun.
On a more serious note, as a board we have decided that for
some of our activities, like the Christmas party and the Crab
Crack, we are going to be very strict about the deadlines.
It has been very difficult to have quality events with last
minute joiners. So be sure to mark your calendars and sign
up by the deadlines posted in the Mogul and on the website.
If they aren’t listed there yet, they will be soon.
See you in November. Adios Amigos!

About Warren Miller’s
Source: Warren Miller Entertainment®
Press Release - August 26, 2010
Do you have a skiing or snowboarding problem? Do you
always have to take “just one more” run? Do you sneak around
your partner to get your powder fix? Will you go to the ends of
the earth in search of snow? If you have answered “yes” to any
of these questions, it may be time for a Wintervention.
Narrated by skiing icon Jonny Moseley, Warren Miller
Entertainment’s 61st film – Warren Miller’s Wintervention
– features acute cases of classic snow-diction from across
the globe. There are the skiers who sail from Argentina to
Antarctica searching for some of the last untouched descents
on Earth. There are the skiers and riders who venture deep
into the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, chasing rumors
they overheard in a language they don’t speak and there are
the skiers who tour far into the northern reaches of the Arctic
Circle where they won’t just climb peaks, they’ll get their
powder fix at the top of the planet. Featuring everything from
terrain parks and lift-accessed fresh to the most exotic settings
imaginable, Wintervention is the definitive solution for the
Wintervention highlights the most trusted names in ripping –
boards-certified riders like Chris Davenport, JJ Thomas, Lindsey
Vonn and Hugo Harrison – and top young talent in the field –
innovators like Andy Mahre, Jossi Wells and Zach Black.
“Our addictions to snow-covered hills and the experiences we
have there are actually good for us—in moderation,” explains
Max Bervy, director and executive producer. “In a world where
the chaotic pace seems to increase daily, it’s the skiers and the
snowboarders who actually have it right, guaranteeing they’re
never far from clean mountain air, deep powder and the good
life lived in the mountains.”
Warren Miller’s Wintervention will sweep the nation as a
limited, high-definition release, stopping in more than 240
U.S. cities, including major markets like Seattle, Chicago and
Los Angeles. With screenings often running for one night only,
Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following and mark
the official start of winter for sports enthusiasts everywhere.
Warren Miller premieres are an experience, a party and a
phenomenon not to be missed. Check out warrenmiller.com
