From the Sacramento Bee:
Boreal open for skiiing this weekend
Want to escape the valley heat? Boreal Mountain Resort will offer a Northern California rarity: Snow skiing in July.
This weekend, the popular resort off Interstate 80, will re-open its Castle Peak Quad chairlift for skiers and snowboarders to enjoy a ribbon of white, leftover from spring’s record snowfall.
“Almost 500 inches of snow fell this winter, with several feet falling after Boreal closed (in April),” said Jon Slaughter, Boreal’s marketing director. “We decided since all this snow was on the mountain, it would be fun to enjoy it for a couple days in July.”
