Boreal is the best low key easy access gem in Tahoe. Ideal for learning the basics and not overwhelming like most ski areas. With the smoothest creative skate style parks and fast lifts it's easy to progress real fast and learn from watching amazing talent cruise by. You can even build your confidence by practicing your tricks at Woodward. Highly... More

Thank you Boreal! Boreal always provides a welcoming environment for myself and my friends! I work in Truckee and ski almost every day after work, any day of the week Boreal really knows how to keep its Boreal Magic firing! I'll keep coming back to Boreal as long as I live!

If you're in Tahoe and want to get in an awesome day on the mountain and not break the bank in the process, Boreal is for sure the place to go! Awesome mountain that caters to experienced shredders with an awesome park set up, and new people just trying to learn to ride with mellow runs also. I couldn't tell... More

Its small but mighty. Boreal gives you the best bang for your buck hands down in Tahoe. They have passes that fits everyones budget you get one of the best parks hands down.

Coming all the way from the Netherlands to ride at Boreal Resort because of their awesome terrain park and friendly and welcoming people. Everyone at Boreal made me feel right at home and being able to go night riding is awesome! Tickets are super inexpensive and I believe it's the best value you will get for your money.

There is no place on earth that is cooler than Boreal. It's one of those things you can't describe because it would diminish it's essence. Just know that if you are looking for a place to snowboard in the Tahoe area, go here. You're crazy if you don't. And not the 'good' kind of crazy.

After 4 years of competing in USASA events hosted by Boreal, I have come to realize what an amazing place this mountain really is. The mountain caters especially to those who want to better their park skills, as well as to beginners who just want to try skiing/snowboarding for the first time! The convenient, state of the art training facilities... More

My favorite place to ride in Tahoe! It's a great place snowboard, skate, and hang out in general. With being open from 9-9 everyday you can always find time to make it up there.

Boreal is an easy choice. SICK SIMPLE SNOW The three S's of boreal are Snow , Simplicity and Sickness. Snow: Boreal receives the storms first, it is right on the crest and it gets absolutely pounded by snow. They are always the first to open and last to close due to this large amount of snow and state of the... More

I can't express how much I love Boreal. It has become a second home for me over the years. The parks are all time and always maintained and you can't beat the fact that they're open from 9am to 9pm! It's always nice to know that I can go enjoy some night shred at Boreal after a days work. I... More
