Media Contact: Jon Slaughter Boreal Mountain Resort 530.426.3666 x184 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 7, 2008 Boreal To Install New Quad Chair Donner Summit, CA, (April 7, 2008)- Boreal Mountain Resort announced today that they will be installing a new Doppelmayr Quad Chair this summer and will have it up and running for the 2008-2009 season. The new Castle Peak Quad will replace the existing Gunnar’s double chair, increasing base area capacity on beginner/novice runs and evolution terrain parks. The new lift will take skiers and riders to a slightly higher end point than the Gunnar’s chair, offering skiers and riders terrain to the resorts mid-mountain. The improvements at Boreal do not end there. The resort will also be upgrading to a fully automated SMI Fan snowmaking system that will double its current output capacity and dramatically improve efficiency. This will make for a much improved early season product, cementing Boreal’s reputation as the first place to be in a Northern California winter. The expanded snowmaking system will not only increase capacity, it will reduce the resort’s carbon emissions by over 300 tons by eliminating compressed air. “Our overall goal at Boreal is to continue improving our beginner and family experience, as well as improving the quality of our early season product”, said Jody Churich, General Manager of Boreal and Soda Springs. “Our corporate objectives always consider improving our carbon footprint when venturing into expansion plans as well,” she added. With over $2.6 million dollars in summer improvements at Boreal, season passholders and ticket buyers will have lots to enjoy at Boreal next season. In addition, Boreal’s rental shop will complete a three year upgrade in its rental fleet to all Burton snowboards and boots, and Volkl skis. # # #
