"Dude, the stoke is radiating right now." -Casey Willax
Boreal made history today opening its lifts and trails on Halloween weekend for the first time since 2011. Every conversation you heard would be filled with disbelief that they were hitting the slopes in October. The whole resort was filled with excitement and joy as skiers are riders geared up, picked up their passes, and headed up the mountain for the first shred session of the 21/22 season. Throughout the entire weekend, we had the pleasure of watching friends and family go down South 40 together. We got to watch as some of our favorite riders like Casey Willax, Savannah Golden, and Pat Moore stomped through the parks. Many took charge of the Halloween weekend hitting the slopes clad in costume. Most importantly, everyone from guests to workers were bustling with smiles and laughter, filled with optimism and positivity for an amazing season. While the snow held out throughout the weekend, the growing dirt patches were a clear indicator that we would have to wait until the next winter storm rolled in to run again.
Thank you to everyone who came out for a historic opener last weekend. It was our earliest opening in over a decade, and you all came out in style! Due to the recent rain on Donner summit, we are pausing our winter operations until further notice, but Woodward Tahoe will remain open to the public. We hope to reopen Boreal Mountain as soon as possible, and we're frothing over next week's forecast with potential for snow and snowmaking temps.
So What's The Deal Moving Forward?
Question: Is Boreal Open now?
Answer: Due to the recent rain on Donner summit, Boreal has paused winter operations until further notice, but Woodward Tahoe will remain open to the public.
Question: Why did Boreal Close?
Answer: All Winter Operations prioritize creating a safe and fun experience for our guests, which we are unable to deliver with the current weather conditions.
Question: When will Boreal Open again?
Answer: We hope to reopen Boreal Mountain as soon as possible, and we're paying close attention to next week's forecast with potential for snow and snowmaking temps. Stay tuned to the website and social media for mountain updates.
Question: Why did Boreal open for only one weekend?
Answer: with the recent atmospheric river/bomb cyclone weather event in Northern California, Boreal received 9" of rain followed by 36" of snow. This made it possible for our mountain operations teams to work round the clock to open the mountain more than three weeks ahead of schedule for our pass holders and guest communities.
Question: What if I already purchased a ticket?
Answer: Our Mountain operations team will contact you directly to resolve your situation with either a refund or reschedule your ticket date.
