If skiing and snow sports are all one desires, the small community of Boreal and its famous mountain resort is the perfect place. A popular ski area in the Soda Springs region near Lake Tahoe, Nevada County, Boreal was typically the first to open an area for snowboarding and skiing in North California. Though one might find it smaller compared to the other magnificent resorts at Lake Tahoe, it doesn’t compromise on its service qualities and opportunities. Lying west of the big city Truckee, the mountain resort at Boreal boasts of its nine chair-lifts; in addition, the family snow-play area known as the ‘Playland’ is an excellent option for families desiring some quality time together while the adventure freaks would enjoy skiing off the heights.
