Glade Runner adds another mountain rush to Idaho's Bogus Basin Ski Resort

January 2, 2018View for printing

I committed myself to go full-bore down the new Glade Runner mountain coaster at Bogus Basin.

It's a gravity-driven ride on more or less a one-person sled, though it can seat two. You control the speed. Push the handles forward and you go the maximum speed gravity allows, about 25 mph. Pull the handles back and you can slow down if the ride becomes too harrowing.

Harrowing it is. Even at what sounds like a tame 25 mph. Believe me, when you're sitting in a tiny sled on a tiny track, 25 mph feels like black diamond ski velocity when you're flying among trees at close quarters.
