Boreal Mountain Resort begins snowmaking

By
October 26, 2010 |

DONNER SUMMIT — Boreal Mountain Resort began its snowmaking operations at 5:30 a.m. Monday, marking another season of early snowmaking efforts. Traditionally, snowmaking season happens in October at Boreal and the current cold weather provided by the low pressure system, combined with Boreal’s upgraded snowmaking system, has allowed the snowmaking crew to begin.
Laying down a snow base for the upcoming ski and snowboard season is not the only reason Boreal has fired up the snowmaking system. Over the past three years, Boreal has invested $1.6 million into a three-phase snowmaking system upgrade which is now complete.
The recent cold weather has provided optimal conditions for testing the completed system and preparing for yet another early opening in the process. Additionally, snow will be produced for the region’s only on-snow early season ski/snowboard event: Boreal’s 6th Annual Jibassic Public Invitational. The event’s date is still to be determined but will be a celebration of early season fun with a full terrain park, giveaways, cash prizes and more.
“We have the technology to great snowmaking and now since we have the weather we will be working around the clock to open Boreal for the season,” said Eric Rosenwald, snowmaking manager at Boreal.
Long range forecasts show a La Nina pattern which can have an active jet stream dipping down into the Pacific and Northern California with above average snowfall.
“The forecast looks very promising for another great ski and snowboard season in Northern California,” said Judy Churich, Boreal general manager.

Note: Boreal’s Last Chance Season Pass Sale ends Sunday, Oct. 31. This is the last opportunity to save up to 30 percent off your season pass for the 2010-11 season. A pass pays for itself after six on-snow days. Boreal is always the first to open in the area and your pass could be paid off before another Tahoe resort opens.
