No word from the county’s “official” tourism website GoNevadaCounty.com or its Facebook page, but Boreal Mountain Resort of Nevada County opens today — carrying on the tradition of being the first skiing and snowboarding resort to open in Northern California.
“We will be open from 12:00pm-9:00pm with park features and there’s no better way to kick off the 16-17′ season than a $15 Friday! Get your season pass today for the best guaranteed price!,” according to Boreal’s website.
Boreal’s surrounding lodging is one of the county’s largest generators of TOT taxes, which go to fund the activities of the County Economic Resource Council, including the GoNevadaCounty.com website. All told, Boreal is a major tax generator in our County.
Boreal in Soda Springs has nine chair lifts and offers night skiing until 9 pm. It is owned by Powdr Corporation.
Sugar Bowl, Squaw, Northstar, Kirkwood and Heavenly Mountain Resort are expected to open on November 23 (weather permitting).
