Man, this place is tiny. I like it that way, it's very cozy and inspiring. Says Richard.

Boreal is a great little ski area, plenty of fun runs and good snow. It's a lot smaller than most ski areas around here which is of course both good and bad. But for a resort of this size it's perfect. Says Ken


There's 380 acres of skiing land, and it's all in delightful shape. This ski hill has a reasonable diversity of trails and a good quantity
of ski lifts. Boreal has greater than average snow each winter. With a total of 41 ski runs to ski on; there are plenty ski runs for every capability. Getting your skiing muscles activated and a chance to spend some time in the great outdoors attract people from far and wide. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, in this general neighborhood, you'll discover scores of ski mountains. A 500 foot vertical drop is naturally not that much, but  
all the other perfect characteristics of Boreal make up for it. Boreal has a much lower than average share of red and black ski slopes and a much higher than average share of beginner and intermediate trails. This is a popular ski hill for skiers from Truckee-Grass Valley. The remarkable seasonal snowfall of 33 feet is one of the reasons this is such a pleasant ski resort. This ski area has 10 different ski lifts, and they are in wonderful shape. This is a relaxed ski resort featuring a more inviting than average drop from top to bottom compared to other west coast ski mountains. The Northern Sierra Nevada blanketed in ice cold snow is a sheer snowboarding and skiing delight. Boreal is a family friendly ski hill with loads of green and blue runs. Skiing and snowboarding here in California is scores of fun the whole ski season. The Northern Sierra Nevada and its summits is a scenery worth seeing. This ski hill has a nice selection of runs to suit all abilities; it won’t leave anyone bored. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far from the base zone if you want to stay for the night, and if you make reservations in advance of a trip, you're all set. The winter in California is truly a wonderful time of year for snowboarding and skiing.
