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


This ski area has 380 acres of skiing territory, and it's all blanketed by snow. The 500 foot drop is naturally not that much to boast about,
but Boreal makes up for it by other means. This ski mountain has 10 lifts, and they are cool to hitch a ride with. On this mountain you'll locate 41 different runs; it's a nice diversity. The beautiful snow here becomes truly deep, 33 feet every season, and that is sufficient for truly good coverage. This ski mountain has a reasonable range of slopes and an acceptable sum of different ski lifts. Boreal is a cozy ski area having a relaxed drop from top to bottom  
compared to other west coast ski hills. You'll stumble upon many skiers from Truckee-Grass Valley here. Boreal has more snowfall than the local average each ski season. Snowboarding and skiing in this part of California is lots of fun every day of the winter season. This ski resort has a much lower than average fraction of tough trails and a much higher than average proportion of green and blue slopes. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, this is a vicinity with lots of ski mountains for that. When this sector of California is covered in white snow; it is so gorgeous for skiing and snowboarding. The Northern Sierra Nevada covered in white snow is a pure skiing and snowboarding paradise. Not too many hotel rooms in close proximity, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better book ahead of going as these hotel rooms fill up rapidly. Boreal is a nice ski area for young and old with many blue and green slopes for learners. Boreal is a nice ski area with loads of different slopes; it's impossible to get bored here. The summits of the Northern Sierra Nevada give this ski resort an incredibly pleasant view. Getting your skiing muscles activated and spending some quality time in the great outdoors have snow people coming here.
