So, you think that snow and California are not compatible? It is only because you still have not visited Boreal Mountain, the ski resort located near Lake Tahoe, California.
Although difficult to believe, sunny California is known as much for its pleasant beaches, as it is for its incredible hidden snowy landscapes, like the Boreal Mountain ski resort. The resort is located in the northern part of the state, right on the Nevada border at over 2,000 meters of altitude.
Boreal Mountain Resort is a ski area situated in Soda Springs, near Lake Tahoe, that offers something for the entire family. Its artificial snow cannons guarantee a season full of snow, and you can even night ski! A great option for thrill seekers or those who want to prolong their day of skiing or snowboarding.
Located off of Interstate 80, Boreal Mountain Resort is smaller in size as compared to others in the same zone. Nonetheless, its stature did not prevent it from hosting the 2009 US Snowboarding Grand Prix. Perfect for family vacations, Boreal Mountain has what is known as a “snow play“, an area specially dedicated to the youngest of skiers.
Many of its runs have been designed for beginners, and more than half are intermediate level, while experts have the opportunity to slide down the slopes via more advanced runs.
