The climate of Boise (Idaho
- United States of America)
Boise is the capital of the state of Idaho. Boise doesn’t have much to
offer to tourists. The most important attractions are the Capitol of
Idaho, the zoo and Julia Davis Park. About 25 kilometers from Boise
Bogus Basin can be found. This is a popular recreation and winter
sports region located at an altitude between 1,675 and 2,311 meters
above sea level. The winter sports season is from Thanksgiving till
the last weekend before 15 April. However, the snow conditions
determine when the winter sports season is over.

of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
