Donner Summit, CA Dec. Jan. 18--Boreal Mountain Playground and Donner Ski Ranch have entered a partnership to connect the two areas. Located back-to-back on Northern California's Donner Summit, the two resorts will combine their terrain for skiers to enjoy Tues.-Thurs. each week starting Jan. 18.
With two lifts linking the resorts, the Donner Ski Ranch and Boreal Mountain Playground interconnect will offer a total of 15 lifts, 86 runs, 5 terrain parks, two lodges, over 700 skiable acres, and more than 750 vertical feet of terrain.
"Our locations are perfect," explained Norm Sayler, President of Donner Ski Ranch. "This is a big opportunity for Donner Ski Ranch and Boreal--we're expanding terrain tremendously and offering customers a lot for their money."
The interconnect is the only one in California and gives the areas a European quality. Skiers can purchase interconnect tickets at either resort for $36 and ski both areas from the two connecting lifts.
"Boreal is excited to be partnering with our longtime neighbor, and it makes sense to expand our mountains," said Mike Hinrichs, General Manager of Boreal Mountain Playground. "This is a win-win situation for both resorts, our customers, and employees."
Boreal Mountain Playground and Donner Ski Ranch are both located just off Interstate 80 on Donner Summit approximately 70-80 miles east of Sacramento.
