Awesome affordable family-friendly snowboarding!
The food is $ pricey $ and not great.

Full review

My little boy and I have been going to Boreal for a few years. We appreciate the awesome lessons / instructors and kid-friendly terrain. We found it because some of our local Truckee friends recommended it as a good, economical place for my then 5-year old to learn how to snowboard. For about 1/3 of the price of other resorts, he can get a lesson, rentals, and a day's pass ($109 total in Dec 2019). Then my full-day lift ticket is about $70, as well, making it a fantastic deal! There is a hiccup or two every once in a while but nothing consistently off. If it weren't for Boreal, we wouldn't be able to afford to come up very often. Everyone at this resort has really helped build my son's snowboarding confidence and I really recognize that. Much love!
