Boreal death strip summer shred
The epitome of a white ribbon of death

Boreal’s annual Summer Shred Session went off this weekend, and the masses were out to enjoy it.  With a number of park features, a freshly cut 13 ft. pipe, a jump, and the narrowest white ribbon of death to date, the skiing and riding was all time.  While most were out enjoying a paddle around the lake or pleasant summer mountain bike ride, the dedicated snow sliders of the Tahoe area were out to slay the gnar at the Boreal Summer Shred.

The lift line was long, but loosely packed and lightly spirited

In order to get to the pipe and the medium sized jump, you had to hike around 100 yards up hill, but the reward was well worth the walk.  Plus, it made the short laps feel just a bit longer.

The jump was short, but sweet with ample boot on the lip

The pipe was even better, and saw little traffic

The park crew (an army of about 1) did a great job at keeping the lip of the jump manicured
