We love this place.  Aside from what other reviewers have mentioned about Boreal, the positives all being true, we had the fortunate experience of seeing a staff member there for many years.  He taught my...

Haven't been to the snow in years and we finally came to this place for sledding!! I'm a horrible skier but haven't learned how to snowboard yet so we decided to sled this year! The resort was packed, super busy, and quite nice. It's good if you don't want to make the drive ALL the way OUT to Tahoe and if you just simply want to play in the snow. This place is separated into the ski, snowboard, and sledding zones. If you get hungry the food court is located in the main office where all the rentals are. The menu options are decent and food is pretty good, but of course expensive. We went to the sledding/play side. For adults, it's $25 per person with "lift tickets" for 2 hours. It's really just a ramp that yo...

We're only reviewing the Playland Tubing facilities at Boreal here.  We have small kids (6, 4) and were excited to try tubing for the first time at Boreal.  There are plenty of opportunities for improvement at this facility. First, the teenaged boys who were employed there were unhelpful and surly to a person.  When they were watching the activities (which they should have been doing more diligently to prevent kids from getting run over by flying tubes), they were mainly screaming at people.   They didn't offer assistance to newbies of any sort (like telling us which run might be safest for a 4 year old).  They seemed wholly unhappy to be at the facility and took it out on the guests.  The missed opportunity...

We are not the Ski guys to call it, so I've search the online for a family oriented snow place to have fun with my family. I've found what they call the Sno-Park @ Boreal, so we went there not knowing what to expect.  And I am so thankful we've gone there because the family had a b...

I dragged the kids up here.... We left at 5am from Los Gatos and got there at 815.   There was an amazing deal where the my 12yo got snow board etc and lessons for two hours (group of kids) for $25!   I actually made money 'cuz we were both so surprised my son bet me $100 there had to be more we hadto spend.  (just kidding!).  Seriously, $25 and he ski'd in the afternoon, too.   His instructor offered to take him on more challenging runs after the lesson on his off time since he felt my son was held back by another kid.  His name is John and that is an amazing offer!   I am so amazed when young people can have so much in them to share their enthusiasm and teach.    Anyway, I took the little kids to the tubin...

This is my first choice for winter fun if I have my kids along.  It's only 3 hours drive from San Francisco.   The resort is not bad for first time skiers or snowboarder learning the sport..  You can take advantage of cheap lessons and lifts.  My son took his first ski lessons here.  It was a fu...

The first time I ever came to Boreal had to have been at least 7 years ago...I brought my son to to his first time in the snow and to take lessons for boarding.  He had a blast making fun of me fallin on my butt while he was making turns already.  I love how quickly the kids can pick it up!  It's amazing how fearless they are. Their chicken tenders is the extent of their food I tried, as it and fries were bought for everyone one trip and they were both actually pretty decent. So at least 7 years later, still love how Boreal is gentle on my butt.  Great beginner resort.  And though I still fall every now and then, I'm gratefully carving the mountain now. I absolutely LOVE their Spring night boarding...jus wis...
