Resort services will be available including food, beverages, rentals, limited availability on lessons and retail. Gated access to the mountain, valid lift tickets and passes permitted in the gated area only. Lift tickets subject to sell out.
To celebrate Boreal’s record breaking early opening, the 5th Annual Jibassic Public Invitational Event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 10th and 11th. This year’s event has been cooked up to feature all shredders willing to throw down great tricks for cash. Boreal is primed with $2,000 cash to be handed out on both Saturday and Sunday. Venue for best trick cash is the public park, open to all and built to Boreal terrain park perfection. Judges will include Robbie Sell from FUEL TV and the Boreal park crew. Wads of $20’s will be dished out from 12noon to 4pm on both days.
