World Snow Day Organisers switch to solar
Boreal Mountain Indoor Snowsports Centre goes 100% Solar Powered
Camp Woodward at Boreal ski resort in California is in the final stages of adding a solar installation to the huge roof of its huge indoor year-round action sports centre, the Woodward Bunker.

The renewable energy project, which the resort says is the largest in the California ski industry, will provide all of the centre’s power needs year-round.

Once implemented, the 235 kW solar photovoltaic (pv) system is projected to generate more than 325,000 kWh of clean electricity annually, enough clean energy to power the equivalent of nearly 30 residential homes.
The installation will offset more than 250 tons of carbon emissions, equivalent to removing 52 cars from the road annually.

“The California sun is a beautiful thing,” said Amy Ohran, general manager of Boreal Mountain Resort. “Now we will do more than enjoy it while we partake in our year-round adventure lifestyle offerings. We can convert it into clean energy, which will supply 15 percent of the energy required to power the entire Boreal and Woodward campus.”

Camp Woodward contains skate parks, foam pits, pump tracks, trampolines and more. Boreal has a history of all-weather snowsports previously operating a SnowFactory all-weather snowmaking system and making snow in summer.
