Media Alert – Media Release Friday, October 5, 2007 Boreal Mountain Resort Making Snow; Readies for Jibassic Pro Rail Invitational October 13th Donner Summit, CA… Boreal Mountain Resort started making snow in preparation for next weekend’s rail jam event at 1am this morning, Friday, October 5th. Because of cold overnight temperatures that dipped into the mid twenties and winter-like weather falling from the snowy sky, Boreal’s crew took advantage of the premier snowmaking conditions. “Temperatures and humidity were optimal to make snow,” said Shaydar Edelmann, Boreal Mountain Resort Mountain Operations Director. “Because of that perfect combination forecasted for tonight, we’ll make snow again, starting at midnight, weather permitting,” he added. “The first day for snowmaking at Boreal is always exciting, and this year is one of the earliest in recorded history” said Eric Rosenwald, Boreal Mountain Resort’s Terrain Park Manager. “It’s turned into a bit of an annual tradition that marks the approach of the ski and ride season, and this year is even sweeter as it is just in time for our annual rail jam event,” he added. Typically Boreal trucks in snow for the rail jam, but this year the conditions are primed to make snow fresh and save it until October 13th. After 8 hours of snowmaking last night, Boreal was able to produce over a foot and a half of snow in some areas. Boreal Mountain Resort reminds us that snow is for play. As Northern California’s backyard resort, you’ll find Boreal easy to access from Interstate 80. Boreal is committed to reducing global warming by operating daily on 100% green power.
