Get excited folks because Lake Tahoe’s Boreal Ski Resort has announced that it will be opening this upcoming Friday!
Once again, it appears Boreal Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe will be the first California Ski Resort to open this season. The official announcement of a Friday opening is expected to come today.
A winter storm dropped 10-15 inches of snow on Monday at Boreal Mountain Resort. The cold temperatures are expected to remain in the region through this week, with an additional 15-20 inches forecasted. The sub-freezing temperatures will allow snowmaking operations to begin and run at every opportunity.
Boreal is targeting to open for skiing and snowboarding on Friday, October 26 (conditions permitting). The resort is hoping to open at least two lifts.
New snowfall along with production of man-made snow opens the door for another early ski/snowboard season at Boreal, which always sets its sights to open in October. Last season, Boreal opened for skiing and riding on October 28, 2011 and the earliest opening in Boreal’s history was on October 9, 2010.
Boreal spokesman Jon Slaughter said, “It looks like a great snowmaking opportunity follows the storm so our team is ready to get to work and provide the early season skiing/riding they have to come to expect from us.”
