VertiGals Information & Calendar

Vertigals is a group of women who meet Wednesday mornings at 9:45 a.m. on the snow in front of the J.R. Simplot Lodge, January through March, to ski or snowboard and have fun! There is no cost to join Vertigals, but a lift ticket or Bogus Basin season pass is needed. This is a social group, not a group lesson. All participants should be at least competent on the Green and Blue runs serviced by the chairlifts on the front side of the mountain. This webpage is updated annually, but THE Vertigals communication tool comes to you on facebook and via email.Visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/vertigals

IMPORTANT: A SIGNED RELEASE FORM IS REQUIRED TO SKI WITH THE VERTIGALS. EVERY NEW (1st time) PARTICIPANT MUST SIGN A RELEASE FORM FOR THE 2015 SEASON.  Forms are available every Wednesday from the Vertigal leaders, or you can email vertigalsinfo@gmail.com and one will be forwarded to you. 

 

There are 16 volunteer leaders (these ladies are not instructors) who know their way around the mountain and ski at ability levels (conservative to intermediate to expert), on trail and off. You can choose to join any one of these groups for the day, depending upon your own ability and comfort level with the terrain and conditions. Look for the leaders in their Vertigal logo jackets, with badges designating their group level: 

 

Green = front side groomed blue and green trails/slopes

Yellow = Intermediate backside groomed trails/slopes

Blue = Advanced intermediate/conservative expert backside groomed trails and some off trail as conditions permit. Check with your leader.

Red = Expert all-terrain and off trail, as conditions permit
