This is an excellent resort to learn to ride. Not too small to get bored on and also not to large to get lost on. I highly recommend this resort for anyone who just wants to get out and ride.

Boreal is the first resort I went to when I started snowboarding 2 seasons ago, it is a great place for people to learn how to ride, and also has great runs for those looking for something more of a challenge.
