Boreal ski resort open 7 days a week

TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) – A pair of days of ideal conditions for snowmaking in the Sierra and around Lake Tahoe last week has allowed Boreal Mountain Resort to open the slopes for skiing seven days a week.

Resort spokesman Jon Slaughter says Boreal opened for good on Friday thanks in part to a new snowmaking system. Before then, it had been open only on weekends.

Slaughter says only one ski lift – the Castle Peak Quad – is open at this time.

He says the adjacent run has an average base of 24 inches but the snow is up to 8 feet deep in some areas. That run includes at least 20 terrain park features for snowboarders, including jump lines, boxes, rails and a staircase.
