These days Boreal is all about its terrain parks, but the quality and length of its runs are still ideal for beginners and intermediate skiiers. Seasoned veterans of the slopes might be less impressed however.
The resort offers some great varied terrain, and though the runs are a little on the short side they help you pace yourself throughout the day so you'll still have the energy left to make the most of the floodlight night-skiing through 9pm.
Also, since most folk arrive at Boreal from the West, it's the first place you'll arrive at on Interstate 80. This makes it popular not only with reluctant drivers and late-sleepers, but also on days where road conditions closer to the lake may make for limited access. Plus .. remember to register for an iRide card to log your ticket purchases, because your third visit is free!

Note: Quicksilver chair is no longer in service, which means the back (south) side of the mountain is no longer accessible.
