Boreal Mountain Resort
Boreal Mountain Ski Resort in Truckee, near Lake Tahoe is nothing short of a thrill. The resort comes equipped with something to do for everyone.
With a vertical rise of just 500 feet, Boreal’s emphasis is on terrain parks rather than expansive terrain, a place where snowboarders and new-school trick skiers in particular can get their kicks.
But Boreal’s real selling point is as a place for first-timers to learn to ski or snowboard. The area claims to have taught more than 300,000 “never evers.” If you want to learn the sport before heading to the bigger resorts in the Tahoe area, Boreal is a good place to start.
For kids, there’s the Big Kid Surface, and a tubing hill that was installed last season. A moving carpet was also added to get you to the top. There are now three four-person (Quad) chairlifts, as well as five other lifts that will take you to any of their forty-one exhilarating runs.
Boreal is located in Truckee, a mere thirty minutes from North Lake Tahoe, directly off of I-80. An easy location to reach, and an even easier place to adore.
