Ski Stress Free

Garden City is the Secret to Stress-Free Skiing

It’s true that you won’t find ski resort in Garden City — but, thanks to its location, it’s the ideal place experience a stress-free day of skiing. Here’s how you can make the most of your time on the mountain while maximizing every moment of relaxation.
Sleep tight at the Riverside Hotel.

The best way to start your adventure is by resting up for the thrills ahead! The Riverside Hotel in Garden City is popular with locals and out-of-town folks alike thanks to its spacious rooms and friendly vibe. Check in, then chill out at the Sapphire Room while enjoying a cocktail and live music.

Fuel up!

Get a head start on the crowds by hitting up the Riverside Hotel’s Riverside Grill for its signature breakfast buffet (weekdays) or brunch (weekends). Starting at 6 a.m., you can enjoy made-on-the-spot omelets, freshly baked donuts, and the Riverside’s famous caramelized pepper bacon. On the weekends, the buffet goes deluxe with the addition of hand-carved prime rib, eggs benedict, a dessert bar, and bottomless mimosas.

Let a driver be your guide.

There’s another amazing perk besides the awesome breakfast at the Riverside: Free connection to the Bogus Basin shuttle! Skip the hassle of dealing with traffic by letting the Riverside shuttle ferry you to the Bogus Basin bus that loops to the ski resort and back every 20 minutes. All you have to do is sit back and think about your first run.  

If you’re new to Bogus Basin, you’re in for a treat. This beloved non-profit ski area has been entertaining families for more than 70 years with its 1,800 foot drop and 91 runs. And it’s not just for skiers! Try the twisting, turning mountain coaster (the only one in Idaho) or the slick tubing hill.

Aprés ski at the brewery.

Where better to finish your mini ski adventure than at the Powderhaus Brewing Company? Their “taphaus” on Chinden Boulevard features alpine-inspired brews in a sleek, wooden space that looks like a modern take on a rustic cabin. Try the First Turns IPA, which is based on locally-grown Chinook and Cascade hops, or the Hinterlander Porter, which boasts coffee and chocolate flavors. Sit back, stretch out, and listen to live music on Friday nights and weekends — and just remember, you can come back for another stress-free ski adventure every weekend while the snow flies!
