BOISE, Idaho — The Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area posted to Facebook Friday to remind the public to only purchase tickets through Bogus’ official online store, after officials said a phishing scam was happening in its social media channels.
Bogus said individuals are posting fake tickets in their comments and allegedly “running a phishing scam,” offering people fake lift tickets if they first send a payment.
The mountain is sold out of day tickets for New Year’s Eve and sent a quick reminded to skiers to only purchase tickets through Bogus’ official online store. Bogus Basin also said the resale of any of its tickets is prohibited.
Bogus received seven inches of snow overnight Thursday and is expecting another two-to-four inches throughout Friday.
