Ski Season Coming to a Close

TRUCKEE, CA - It was a big day at Boreal for Roseville's Kaden Loftus.

"I have been doing backflips and frontflips on my snowboard," says Loftus.

After winning a kid's competition on the slopes, he had mixed emotions.

"I love snowboarding, it's my passion and I just don't want it to end," says Loftus.

Unfortunately, the end of the ski and snowboard season is very near. With boreal wrapping up business on Sunday, the ski resort had a terrific turnout on Saturday.

"It's great to go out on a high note, you can see that we had a good crowd today. Everyone's having a good time, and that's the way we want to end things," says Boreal Marketing Director Jon Slaughter.

You may not think of april as being a great skiing month, but thanks to some fresh powder in the area recently, Boreal is seeing some of their best conditions in time for the end of the season.

"This is not unusual at all. As a matter of fact, I've been here for seven years and I think fifty percent of the time it's always snowed on closing day," says Slaughter.

"I'm from San Francisco, so I'm sure as heck not going to drive three and a half hours for no snow," says Frank De-Levi.

There's still hope for snow fanatics like Kaden who want to experience one final rush. A number of Tahoe resorts like Kirkwood, Donner, and Heavenly will keep their lifts running until at least the end of the month.
