New for 2014-15

Boreal Mountain Resort is celebrating a big anniversary this season as it moves into its 50th year of operations. To mark the golden anniversary, the resort will host three events to celebrate the occasion along with commemorative giveaways, new website and special anniversary logo. The resort continues to invest in energy-efficient snowmaking improvements designed to use less water and electrical energy in production. Over the summer, crews made significant enhancements to infrastructure, replacing snowmaking pipes and installing a new cooling system to ensure resources are better utilized. The addition of a 100-ft surface lift and expanded learning terrain provides safer and less crowded area, ideal for learning to ski and snowboard. A new pirate-themed terrain park, Neff Land, will be unveiled in January boasting over 30 rideable features including a life-sized ship mast, cannons, pirates and more. Located in the base area, Woodward Tahoe’s indoor pump track will undergo a complete renovation to provide a better learning and progression environment for snowsport guests on Parkskis™ and Parkboards™. Also new for 2014-15 at Boreal, the mountain services has been remodeled to increase efficiency and guest service.
