Boreal Mountain Resort Starts Making Snow

Donner Summit, California—Boreal Mountain Resort started making snow on its ski and snowboard trails today, Thursday, November 3. Because of cool temperatures and the current snowstorm hitting Donner Summit, Boreal is aiming to once again be the first winter resort in California to offer skiing and snowboarding for winter 2005/2006. “Temperatures and humidity need to be optimal to make snow, said Chris McAuliffe, Boreal Mountain Resort Mountain Operations Director. “Because the temperatures have dropped and have remained consistently cool, we’ll make snow ’round the clock, weather permitting, he added.

“It’s always exciting when Boreal starts making snow, said Jody Churich, Boreal Mountain Resort’s Director of Marketing. “It’s a bit of an annual tradition that marks the approaching winter, adding, “It also serves as an indicator as to how close Boreal is to opening for skiing and snowboarding.
