Located on Highway 80, West of Truckee, California, Boreal is typically the first area to open for skiing and snowboarding in Northern California. For the 2017-2018 season, Boreal was the first resort to open in all of California, opening on November 8, 2017. Although it is relatively small compared to other Tahoe area resorts, Boreal hosted the US Snowboarding Grand Prix in 2009.
Boreal added a new Magic Carpet for the 2007 season and a high-speed mid-mountain chair lift for the 2008 season. For the 2018–19 season, Boreal opened a new beginner chairlift, named California Cruiser. The Terrain park is the main feature for many "park" skiers and snowboarders. Features include handrails, boxes, a half-pipe, a jump line, snow-sculpted transition and flow lines, and the Woodward Peace Park. The family snow play area, called Tahoe Tubing features snow tubing lanes and snow play for the entire family. Tahoe Tubing is accessible from a Magic Carpet surface lift to transport guest back up the tubing lanes. Boreal Mountain is also home to Woodward Tahoe, a 33,000 square foot action sports hub open year-round. In the summer months Boreal / Woodward offers lift-served downhill mountain biking trails and an 11-acre network of outdoor skateparks, parkour zones, and dirt jump lines.

This is a convenient resort for winter sports. It is right on I-80 and much closer than Lake Tahoe in driving time. It's a big basic slope with groomed experiences and lifts and a big parking lot...
