Mission43 Mountain Day at Bogus Basin
Mar
16
8:30 AM08:30

Mission43 Mountain Day at Bogus Basin

SKI FREE + COASTER PASSES + M43 BASECAMP + LUNCH = MOUNTAIN DAY FOR MISSION43 FAMILIES

Bring the family and cruise around the mountain with some of our best M43 friends. It’s a great opportunity to get together as winter comes to a close. We'll have the Mission43 Basecamp set up on the 3rd floor of the Pioneer Lodge so you can stay warm and relax with food and drink. We'll also provide the lift tickets, lunch, and a voucher to try out the Glade Runner mountain coaster!

RSVP REQUIRED!!!

Check your email, we’ll send the RSVP to all Mission43 members. This is the only way to register for the M43 Mountain Day. (Please respond by Tuesday, March 12th)

PARDOT+Email+Headers.png

THE DETAILS

TIMELINE: SATURDAY, MARCH 16TH

  • 8:30am - 10:30am: Check-in tent opens (in front of Simplot Lodge) to get your lift ticket vouchers, Mountain Coaster vouchers, and M43 Basecamp access bracelets. The tent closes at 10:30am so you will have to arrive during this window...our volunteers get to ski too!

  • 9:00am: Mission43 Basecamp opens in the Pioneer Lodge, 3rd Floor

  • 11:30am - 1:30pm: Lunch served…fajita bar!!!

  • 2:30pm: M43 Basecamp closes

PARKING

It might be somewhat tricky, so plan ahead. The upper lot at the Pioneer Lodge, where the M43 Basecamp is located, fills up early with the regular die-hard skiers and boarders, so it’s probably best to park in the main lot below and ride the Morningstar Lift up. If you are only planning on hanging out in the M43 Basecamp, then we recommend you try and get a spot early or get dropped off at the Pioneer Lodge lot.

8:30AM-10:30AM CHECK-IN LOCATION

The Mission43 pop-up tent will be located in front of the Simplot Lodge where you would normally purchase your lift tickets. This is where you will get a lift ticket voucher, rental voucher, mountain coaster pass, and bracelet for Basecamp access. We'll shut down check-in at 10:30 so our volunteers have the opportunity to enjoy the mountain too.

THE MISSION43 BASECAMP

Located on the 3rd floor of the Pioneer Lodge, this is where you can come and go throughout the day. It’s also a great chance to meet the Mission43 leadership team so you can learn more about opportunities to get involved or different programs the pillars offer that you can benefit from.

  • Lunch (11:30am - 1:30pm) will be a Fajita Bar served in the Basecamp.

  • Drink: Wine, beer, and soda is available at our hosted bar.

MOUNTAIN COASTER PASSES

We’ll provide a voucher at check-in for the 4,330 ft mountain coaster that climbs as high as 40-feet in the air and can hit 25 mph. (Totally optional!) The coaster is open from 11:00am - 4:30pm.

SKI/SNOWBOARD RENTAL VOUCHER

If you need skis or a snowboard we will provide a rental voucher when you check-in on Saturday morning. The line can get long in the rental shop so try and get there early.

ABOUT THIS EVENT FROM THE ZIONS BANK BRC:

Credit Matters: Know Your Score and More. Your credit score can affect what interest rates you are offered on loans, if you will be considered for certain jobs or even if you qualify for the best auto insurance rates. So how do you build and manage credit? This topic isn’t usually taught in schools or discussed at the family dinner table, leaving most of us to try to figure things out on our own. We hope we’ll get it right.

But hope is not a financial strategy. Our best intentions can sometimes lead to costly mistakes or misinformation that limit our personal and business opportunities. Learn how to take control of your credit by attending this complimentary workshop.

In this workshop, you will learn about:

  • Different types of credit and the cost of credit

  • What goes into a credit score

  • Where to access your credit report

  • How to identify and dispute errors

  • When and why you might need a credit freeze

  • How financial institutions and others use credit data for decisions

  • Good habits you can begin today to improve your situation

  • Date: Thursday, February 21

  • Time: 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

43INC Featuring Oz Sanchez - Paralympic Gold Medalist

43INC Featuring Oz Sanchez - Paralympic Gold Medalist

We invite you to join us for our next 43INC with a guest who embodies excellence in the face of adversity. Oscar “Oz” Sanchez is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who’s life changed forever in 2001 when he was involved in a hit-and-run motorcycle accident. The accident resulted in a spinal cord injury (SCI) and the inevitable paralysis and associated neurological complications.

After the accident, Oz’s biggest fear was being defined by his injury. As a result, he developed a new sense of direction and vigor for life. He pulled out of his post-injury depression and once again took a proactive approach to living by dedicating himself to education and hand cycling.

Oz is an elite hand cycle racer who has won gold medals at the 2008 and 2012 Paralympic Games and he is also a five-time World Hand Cycling Champion which has earned him the title of “world’s fastest hand cyclist.”

Oz is a graduate of San Diego State University with a business degree and a minor in public communications and is currently pursuing a masters degree while training for the 2020 Paralympics.

Now, we have the opportunity to sit down with Oz and hear his inspirational story. We'll be at the Olympic Venue in Boise with food, drink, and a chance to connect with others involved with the M43 community. RSVP today!

  • Date: Thursday, February 7

  • Time: 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

  • Location: The Olympic Venue (1009 W Main St, Boise, ID 83702)
