West coast skiers and boarders rejoice: Boreal opens, all passes welcome this weekend

Posted By: The Ski Channel on October 29, 2010 10:48 am

The upgrades to the snowmaking system have paid off. Even with less than ideal snowmaking conditions, Boreal is ready to get the West Coast’s first skiers and riders on-snow. In addition to the Nugget chair which will be running 9am Friday, Castle Peak Quad will be opening Friday afternoon at 4pm and run until 8pm Friday night, then continuing throughout the weekend from 9am to 4pm.

On Friday, October 29th only, Boreal will be offering Frickin’ Friday for All, $15 lift tickets. For the first time ever, Boreal will offer the college discounted day for everyone to celebrate opening day.

All Boreal season passes will be accepted during the first weekend of operations (including College and SuperSaver passes). After this weekend, restrictions will be enforced. Night season passes are valid during the day until official night operations begin.

Don’t have your pass yet? The Last Chance Season Pass sale ends October 31st, where you can save up to 30% off your season pass. Order online now, or better yet…come up to Boreal…buy a pass…and begin your season. College Pass credit requirement just reduced to 9 credits.

JPI.6 – The Jibassic Public Invitational will take place Friday, October 29, 2010 from 5pm – 8pm. Boreal will host an opening celebration under the lights, handing out $1,000 in $10 bills to people on the mountain having a good time. Come out and celebrate the beginning of the ski/board season.
