Donner Summit, CA—Boreal Mountain Resort will open for the winter 2006-2007 ski and snowboard season Tuesday, November 14, the first Tahoe-area winter resort to open. Because of cool temperatures, recent snowfall, and Boreal’s extensive snowmaking efforts, the resort will offer trails via Gunnar’s chair lift, from 9am to 4pm daily (conditions permitting).

“The weekend storm was a welcomed start to winter. Cold snowmaking temperatures ahead of the storm helped Boreal push for opening the doors for the ski and snowboard season, said Jody Churich, Boreal Mountain Resort’s Director of Marketing.

Opening day’s lift ticket rates will be reduced: $22 for adults and teens, and $10 for kids. Boreal will open additional lifts as snow conditions permit. Resort services will include all base facilities including food and beverage, ski rentals and retail. Ski school lessons will be offered based on availability (please call ahead).

Boreal will offer terrain park features including 2 c-boxes, a down rail, a 32′ flat down box, a 20′ flat box and a beginner jib area with 2 ride on flat boxes and 1 ride on rail.

Tossing inhibitions to the wind, Boreal Mountain Resort reminds us that snow is for play, and everyone gets a whole winter of practice at being 10. Fresh eyes, open minds, and the intuitive Zen of fearless youth prevail at Boreal, and new experiences await anyone who elects to play. First-timer ski and board sessions, an Olympic-caliber superpipe, ever-inventive terrain park features of 100 sizes and shapes, easy I 80 access, and an invitation to some carefree cool from 9am ’til 9pm daily are part of Boreal’s friendly, ever-present vibe.
