Video: Preseason in the park at Boreal

Boreal Mountain Resort is open and already boarders and skiers are hitting the park, which has new features for even bigger tricks. The fine folks over at Porters Tahoe caught some video on opening day. Check it out:

It’s on! Boreal opens the 2008-2009 ski season in Tahoe

boreal castle peak quad chairBoreal ski resort, located near Donner Summit along Interstate 80 in the Sierra Nevada, has once again claimed the first opening of the season.

A reported 14”-19” -inch base greeted skiers and boarders who flocked to the resort today for first tracks, following a series of storms last week. They also got the chance to ride Boreal’s new Castle Peak Quad (pictured), installed during the off-season.

The chair will replace the existing Gunnar’s and Claimjumper chairs, increasing base area capacity on beginner/novice runs and evolution parks.  The new lift will take skiers and riders to a slightly higher end point than the Gunnar’s chair, offering terrain to the resorts mid-mountain.

Early skiers receive a discounted rate of $30 for full day tickets.

Over the next couple weeks several more Tahoe-area resorts plan to open … and the forecast calls for another storm this weekend to deepen the base. So get your skis or board waxed and get to Reno-Tahoe!
