Power restored at Bogus Basin

Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area experienced another power outage Wednesday.  

The ski hill closed early on Tuesday due to a power outage. There was no night skiing Tuesday.

Idaho Power spokesman Brad Bowlin says today's outage was reported at 11:54 a.m.  By 2 p.m. full power had been restored. He says snow unloading is the likely cause of both outages. That's when snow on a tree or power line falls off, causing the power line to bounce and trip. The line must be physically inspected before it can be turned back on.

A spokesman for Bogus Basin says they do have a backup generator, so everyone was able to get off the mountain. The lifts were closed for a couple of hours but are back up and running. He says there will be night skiing tonight, but only on the front side of the mountain.
