Boreal is alwayss crowded, isnt it? I think it's crowded because most of their lifts only seat 2 adn it's cheaper than other places.. so a LOT of beginners and people who aren't strong skiiers go there. Plus.. its also the closest one to most people in the bay area so it's "the one" to go to. However, the only have a few lifts and again, it only seats 2 per lift. BLAHH not worth the wait. If you guys do head up there again, check out their IRIDE card if you guys don't have a season pass. 2 trips gets u teh next trip free. ;] nice deal
