Financial Support by J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation
For immediate release
December 13, 2012 (Boise, ID) - Bogus Basin announced today that the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation will provide a $100,000 grant to support the new Mtn Dew Terrain Park at Bogus Basin.
“The impact of the Albertson Foundation’s support will greatly improve the park experience and ramp up the satisfaction level of our younger skiers and riders who have been asking for improvements,” stated Alan Moore, General Manager at Bogus Basin.
The Foundation’s gift will allow Bogus Basin to purchase 10 new features, rebuild 10 existing features, light both sides of Mambo Meadows (summer of 2013 project) and increase grooming time and personnel at the Park.
Working with a community-led committee looking for ways to improve the terrain park experience, Bogus Basin committed to build a top to bottom terrain park to better serve both beginner and intermediate skiers and riders. Mtn Dew, through Pepsi Bottling Ventures, also continues with their financial commitment to improve the park for years to come.
“Affordable outdoor recreation and education at Bogus Basin is what’s best for this community,” said Moore, “and the Albertson Foundation and companies like Pepsi Bottling Ventures are allowing that commitment to continue.”
