Boise State Among Top 3 U.S. Colleges and Universities for Outdoor Adventure

By: Sherry Squires   Published 10:19 am / April 27, 2016 has named Boise State University No. 3 on its list of Top 20 U.S. Colleges for Outdoor Adventurers.

It had this to say about Boise State:

“Located in the city of trees and situated between Idaho’s Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin deserts, Boise State has abundant outdoor opportunities. Some of the country’s best mountain biking trails, three convergent rivers, and steeply pitched rock are located in Boise and the surrounding area.

Roughly 20 minutes from downtown Boise, winter sports-loving students can find some pretty deep powder. Students can travel to the Bogus Basin Ski Resort every Friday from the end of January to mid-March to night ski for only $25 per trip.

Aside from alpine and Nordic adventures, the Outdoor Program offers a variety of courses including rock climbing, backpacking, and rafting. The Outdoor Program offers an annual Season Pass for only $199, where students are able to attend one weekend trip each semester, one day trip each semester, one free scheduled night ski at Bogus Basin Ski Resort, and rental and trip discounts.”
