Mountain Profile

Boreal Mountain Resort is Tahoe’s best value with terrific discounted packages and creative terrain parks. Always the first resort in the area to open, Boreal’s lifts spin from 9:00am – 9:00pm daily providing skiers and riders easy access to the slopes, day or night. Those new to snow will enjoy the Take 3, Ride FREE program offering a free season pass upon completion of three lessons. With five parks and a pipe, Boreal is a terrain park enthusiasts’ dream come true. Woodward Tahoe, located steps away from the slopes, is Tahoe’s only action sport training facility offering indoor trampolines, foam pits, skateparks, ramps and more.

New for 2016-17

We are entering the 2016/2017 still smiling from the 500+ inches of snow that we saw last season. Boy was it great to see winter return!

As our guests arrive this winter, they will be welcomed with some exciting improvements to our mountain experience. The addition of two Pisten Bully Park Pro 400 grooming machines will enhance our slopes and terrain parks. Our Neff Land terrain park has several unique new features, and night skiing and riding just got better! We have completed phase one of an LED slope-lighting project that makes for brighter nights and less energy usage.

Enhancements in our Food and Beverage options include an expanded Boreal Café menu and a Fresh Food Bar, and an outdoor Waffle Cabin. Guests will also notice the addition of music in our base area and an exciting Spring Music Series.

Our full day ski and snowboard lessons have been re-mixed to become the most fun, progressive and unique learning experience in Northern California. Based out of our 32,000 square foot action sports facility, Woodward Tahoe, participants will utilize foam pits, ramps, trampolines and our outdoor Woodward parks and learning terrain.

Our All Access Pass is back! This Boreal Mountain Resort and Woodward Tahoe season pass is a guest favorite, and we made it even better with a new low price for children ages 6-12.

In furthering our goal of getting our guests out on the mountain as efficiently as possible, our OnePass will provide an innovative direct-to-service opportunity. Through our online OneStore, guests can load discounted lift tickets, season passes, lesson packages, tubing and Woodward Tahoe sessions directly to their OnePass and save time on arrival day.

Our purpose and our mission is to develop generations of active and passionate enthusiasts in our guest and staff communities. I’m excited to see returning guests and to connect with new guests this season. I hope that you have an outstanding season as part of our community of Boreal and Woodward Tahoe.
