SODA SPRINGS, CA. November 8, 2018 – Boreal Mountain, California will be the first ski resort in California to open for the 2018-19 season. Boreal will open to the public on Friday, November 9th for its 54th season, with skiing and snowboarding beginning at 2:00 p.m. and continuing until 8:00 p.m. Boreal will then expand it's operating hours to 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Saturday through Monday. Known for its early season operations and conditions, Boreal Mountain Resort will offer skiing and riding access with up to eight terrain park features accessed by the Castle Peak Quad chairlift. Winter temperatures arrived early this week which allowed Boreal's dedicated mountain operations staff and state-of-the-art snowmaking system to make magic happen on Donner Summit. This combination has allowed us to be the first resort open in California for the past five years and we couldn't be more excited.

"After a long summer of preparations, we’re excited to kick off the 2018-19 winter season," said Matt Peterson, VP of Marketing & Brand Management, Boreal Mountain California.

Conditions permitting, Boreal Mountain California hopes to expand operations and terrain to the peak as the weather allows. Stay tuned to our social channels for the latest updates.
