The much anticipated Superpipe in the Boreal Terrain Park is set to open on Thursday January 1st. Olympic in size, this years Superpipe at Boreal offers walls the height of 18.5 feet extending 450 feet in length, and a consistent slope grade of 15 degrees. As always Borealâ€™s focus on premier parks and pipes continues by introducing the first Superpipe in Tahoe this winter season.
This signature feature is sure to please.
With over 10 feet of fresh snow over the past few weeks, Mother Nature provided more than enough snow for the world-renowned builder Eric Rosenwald to complete his masterpiece. The Terrain Park crew grooms the pipe twice daily, once from 2 p.m.- 6 p.m. and once overnight. Boreal Mountain Resort is open from 9am to 9pm daily, weather permitting. Located on Race Course Run, the Superpipe can be accessed from the Accelerator chair lift.
This season will mark the first year that the Boreal Superpipe will host two major US pipe competitions. Watch the pros throw down in an all out battle for cash and prizes in the US Grand Prix Snowboard competition taking place on January 29th â€“February 1st. Then, two days later the US Snowboard Association brings the Snowboard Revolution Tour to Boreal on February 3-6th.
An honor of this magnitude brings a buzz of excitement to the mountain. Boreal Marketing Director Jon Slaughter had this to say about the anticipation of these events.
â€œBeing selected to host the US Snowboarding Grand Prix is a major honor and solidifies the commitment that Boreal has made to our terrain parks. Now Boreal has the opportunity to showcase our resort, by welcoming two top level events to the mountain.â€ For all the latest and greatest updates on what’s new to Boreal’s terrain park please visit www.borealterrainpark.com
