Boreal opens Friday

By October 28, 2010

DONNER SUMMIT — Boreal Mountain Resort is once again getting skiers and boarders on snow in the month of October. Boreal will roll one lift and open one run Friday, Oct. 29.

Cementing its commitment to early season skiing and riding, Boreal is the first ski resort in California to open for the season.

The Nugget chair lift will operate from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Boreal is offering “Frickin’ Fridays to All:” $15 lift tickets for all ages. Frickin’ Friday’s is traditionally a discount only offered on Fridays to college students with a valid college ID. Boreal will offer one groomed trail and one terrain park with four to five features.

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 30, Boreal will run two lifts, two groomed runs and two terrain park lines as conditions permit. Lift tickets for children ages 5-12 will be $15, adults 13 and up will be $30. All season pass holders are welcome, or buy a pass  on-site at Boreal’s Last Chance Pass Sale, which ends Oct. 31.

Resort services will be available including food, beverages, rentals and retail. Gated access to the mountain, valid lift tickets and passes will be permitted in the gated area only. Lift tickets are subject to sell out. Due to the limited terrain, a beginner terrain or the ski school will not be available.

To celebrate the beginning of the season the sixth annual Jibassic Public Invitational will take place Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. and be open to the public. Boreal has $1,000 to hand out in the public park, which is open to all and built to terrain park perfection.

Boreal’s early season operations will continue as conditions permit. For updates log on to
