On Monday, March 21, 2011 the total snowfall record of 662” set in 1994/95 was broken. Boreal currently sits at 691” of total annual snowfall for the 2010/11 season. During the month of March alone, Boreal has received 204” of snowfall with another 6 feet expected through the end of the month. “If the next storm continues as forecasted Boreal’s total snowfall will double the 40-year average of 365 inches. Thanks to the incredible snowfall, we are preparing to extend the ski season,” stated Jon Slaughter, Boreal Marketing Director. “Details are not final, but skiers and riders can expect to hit the slopes late this season.” Boreal’s grooming and maintenance crews are working around the clock to give customers access to powder-filled trails. “Many local skiers and riders are taking advantage of our night skiing operations during the powdery conditions,” said Jody Churich, Boreal General Manager. “Our guests can head to the mountain after work or school and still score some fresh powder turns.” Boreal is open 7 days/week from 9am – 9pm. Snow tubing at Boreal’s Playland Tubing Park is also available from 10am – 4pm Sunday – Thursday, and Friday – Saturday from 10am – 8pm.
