Media Contact: Jon Slaughter Boreal Mountain Resort 530.426.3666 x184 Jons@borealski.com IMMEDIATE RELEASE Skiers and Snowboards Get Last Shot at Winter Fun in the Summer Donner Summit, CA, (April 15, 2011) – Boreal Mountain Resort is spinning a chairlift in July 10th and 11th for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy summer snow. This weekend Boreal Mountain Resort will run the Castle Peak Quad chairlift granting access to a ribbon of snow left behind after the record setting snowfall Boreal saw this spring. “Almost 500 inches of snow fell this winter, with several feet falling after Boreal closed. We decided since all this snow was on the mountain, it would be fun to enjoy it for a couple days in July,” said Jon Slaughter, Boreal Marketing Director. “It’s a novelty to be able to ski in the summer. Something worth celebrating,” Slaughter added. Boreal will provide a terrain park on one trail. Barbeque and beverages are available. Bring sunscreen and a hearty appetite for snow. Boreal Mountain Resort will be open from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm on July 10th and 11th. Lift tickets will cost $20 for all ages and 2010/2011 season pass will be accepted. Season passes will also be on sale for a little as $129. More information can be found on Boreal’s website, www.rideboreal.com. ####
