On the opening day of Idaho's legislative session, people navigating around the capitol city are experiencing a winter wonderland. Fresh snow blankets Boise, making roads dangerous for the evening commute.
The National Weather Service in Boise has issued a winter weather advisory for much of southwest Idaho. The advisory will be in effect until 8:00 p.m.
Southern Idaho ski areas are wrapping up their seasons. Bogus Basin and Sun Valley have closed their lifts. Brundage has one more weekend, possibly more, if the snow holds. This ski season has been a trying year for them.
