A Look Back at the Best Cinco de Mayo EVER
Happy Anniversary, Woodward Peace Park Championships. We love you.
More so now than ever, we’re reminiscing about last year when Danny Davis and 18 of his pro shredder buddies visited us for 5 days full of good times. They camped in our parking lot, skated the Bunker, and made the hardest tricks on a snowboard look stylish and easy.
Supporting those on the Front Lines
We’re at it again! It's Feel Good Friday and this week we're giving a shout out to Goggles for Docs.
In our efforts to keep safety and well-being our top priority, we have teamed up with Goggles for Docs to help the fight against COVID-19. If you have not heard about this awesome overnight grassroots effort to supply physicians and medical providers with personal protective equipment, than keep reading.
Celebrating our Charity of Choice
A Salute to our Park Crew
The team that made miracles happen, the group behind the biggest smiles, the best lines, the best times: Park Staff. The beginning of winter started out slow, with minimal man-made snow on the ground and even less in the forecast, but the creativity, dedication, and love for their craft came to life in the form of a Woodward Hike Park, kicking off our winter season with good vibes all around.
Recognizing our Patrol Team
We’ve said many times these last few weeks that the safety and well-being of our guests is our top priority. Without this crew, our patrol team, that wouldn’t be possible. In early March we landed a Care Flight in the parking lot at Boreal, but this time for the best reason. The Care Flight pilot, someone we’ve seen a few times this season, stepped out of “the bird” to present our crew with the Golden Rotor Award, an honor extended in recognition of lifesaving practices and patient care considered above and beyond the normal emergency response.
For the Love of Standing Sideways

Pick Your Park
Since November, our network of Woodward Mountain Parks have really taken shape across the resort. There's a line for everyone: big and small, beginner or shredder.
For the People
The newest Woodward Mountain Park to hit the slopes at Boreal / Woodward, Peace Park, is now open. Accessible from the Accelerator chairlift, and situated right on Cedar Ridge, this one is full of flowy features, designed by the man himself, Danny Davis.
It was a meeting of the minds...
Danny Davis rolled in the parking lot on Saturday morning, creativity already flowing. After stepping inside the Boreal / Woodward offices it was quite literally back to the drawing board; sketches of flowy, fun features scribbled across a sprawling whiteboard.
Tons of Terrain, New Parks + California's First Halfpipe
Winter 19/20 started out slow, but just as families across the country were carving their holiday turkey Old Man Winter turned on at Donner Summit, and didn't stop. After a few weeks of back-to-back storms Boreal Mountain has surpassed the 100" inch mark, bringing our season snowfall totals into the triple digits. Our Mountain Operations team has been working around the clock expanding terrain after each passing storm. We're now 100% open!
