BBSEF Home Teams starting weekend Dec 20th & 21st

Mitey Mite, Devo and Team Shred Home,

All programs are scheduled to start this weekend (December 20th and 21st), but mother nature is not providing enough snow yet. We are crossing our fingers that Bogus Basin opens this weekend with some limited skiing areas.  The mountain is working very hard and striving to have some of the front side open for skiing during Christmas break.

However, if Bogus does NOT open we will have dryland training both Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 am-11:30 am at Camel’s Back Park.

If Bogus does open we will be on snow as scheduled, including those planning on the additional Christmas camp days.  Because of limited terrain we are not sure if there will be access to the Jason Harper Training Center.  Once we get additional information from Bogus, another email with details will follow.  The morning session will go from 9:30 am until 12:00 pm. Lunch from 12:00 pm  to 1:00 pm and the afternoon session will be 1:00 pm  to 3:30 pm.

Christmas Camp – I know some of you have been waiting to see if Bogus is open to sign up for Christmas camp.  We need to plan for Christmas Camp and schedule coaches so if you would like to participate please complete and return the attached form by noon on Friday, December 19th.  If the mountain is not open we will not have camp.

How the Ski Swap Works:

Simply bring your used equipment down to Idaho Expo and check it in. If it sells during the Swap, BBSEF will take a 25% commission and mail you a check for the remaining 75%. It’s that easy and it sure beats letting old equipment collect dust in the garage. 

Dropping Off Your Merchandise:
You may check in your equipment at Idaho Expo on:

  • Thursday, Oct. 30th , Noon—9:00 pm
  • Friday, Oct 31st , 11:00 am—9:00 pm
  • Saturday, Nov. 1st , 10:00 am—1:00 pm

Picking Up & Getting Paid:
Unsold equipment must be picked up on Sunday, Nov. 2nd  from 3:00 – 5:00 pm. We cannot keep equipment after 5:00 pm on Sunday. Do not assume your item has sold if you can’t find your item.  Check with a BBSEF representative at equipment checkout. BBSEF is not responsible for equipment left at Idaho Expo after 5pm on Sunday. 

For those who sold equipment, BBSEF will mail a check to your address by December 1st (just in time for Christmas shopping).

Sellers check online to see if your items have sold!

Sellers must pick up unsold equipment by 5 pm on Sunday, November 2nd at Expo Idaho 5610 Glenwood at the Fairgrounds in Boise.
