***4th Annual NCS Adopt-A-Newbie Day***

CARPOOL LINK




  





Happy Beginning of the Snowboarding Season guys...Join Norcal Snowboarders for our 4th Annual Adopt-A-Newbie Day at Boreal (http://www.borealski.com/winter/index.html.) Last year we mentored lots of new BOARDERS and of course lil' skiers who had never been before, or who were just getting back into the sport. This day is dedicated to the helping of new people and just being there for support. We've all been newbies before and all realize the dedication it takes to become a good boarder, so in order to increase our RIDERS group we're here to help you along your journey. With the[masked] Norcal Snowboarder Badge Adult lift tix prices are $38 for the day,$30 for ages 13-18, and $12 for ages 5-12. If you are a DRIVER in our carpool and carry a MINIMUM of 3 passengers, YOUR lift ticket is ONLY $15(DRIVERS are on a 1st come 1st serve basis!!) The BOREAL 1-2-3 RIDE FREE program allows you to rent a Board & Boots, a 90 minute lesson, and a LIMITED lift ticket(Nugget & Castle Peak), for ONLY $60. 13-18 is $55, and ages 5-12 is $50. Boreal is open from 9am-8pm.Clarks Snowsports will also be providing 3 $15 dollar gift certficates for the newbies as well. Before we leave Boreal, there'll be a race for all newbies and the winner will receive 1 of the gift certifcates. Another one will be given to "BEST ATTITUDE" because it's fun to see all the smiles prior, and then all the frowns of pain afterwards  The 3rd gift certificate will be given to the "MOST IMPROVED" for the day. So come on out and watch the newbies BUST THEIR BOTTOMS at BOREAL.

***If you DO NOT ARRIVE with the group, you WILL NOT get the discounted price. We go thru a special register once we arrive, he will NOT re-open the register only to allow a few people to go thru, so PLEASE keep that in mind. Regular lift ticket price is $59***

    It was an enjoyable day on the mountain with everyone. Bummer there was almost no snow and only the small runs available, but that meant more time with the new snowboarders. Good times.

    Boreal just called me to say their lift tix prices will be $42 for this weekend, so u dont neccessarily have to buy the Badge to get the $38 lift tix price. You'll just pay the $42...The regular price is $59, the following weekend their prices will go to regular prices. If you're a driver in our carpool(not on ur own) and carrying 3 or more you do get the $15 lift ticket with purchase of the NCS[masked] Badge. Feel free to text me with any questions.

    What I need everyone to FULL UNDERSTAND is this...you MUST go thru the register with us at around 8:00-8:15, if you're late and not with us...you will pay the full lift ticket price for that day...so if you're coming from out of the area like RENO(Brandon), be there by 8am :-)
    Lift tix prices have been dropped for us from $41 to $38 now...
