In its 60-plus year history, Sierra-at-Tahoe has transformed into one of the largest resort areas at Lake Tahoe and has earned its reputation as a great all-around resort. In fact, for the second year running, Transworld SNOWboarding’s 2011 Resort Guide ranked Sierra-at-Tahoe as one of the country’s top 10 overall resorts – one of two Lake Tahoe resorts to make the cut. Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort’s new back-country cat tours take expert skiers and riders straight to the edge of Huckleberry Canyon, allowing enthusiasts to save energy, and 30-40 minutes, for those deep powder turns, by-passing the one and a half mile hike out to the gates. Sierra Resort’s new Burton Riglet Park is a mini snowboard park designed to introduce kids as young as three years old to the sport of snowboarding. Back by popular demand, access to the resort’s affordable team training programs will be included with certain season passes, and Sierra-at-Tahoe is also offering sweet deals via an opt-in text message service.
Stretching 2,000 skiable acres and boasting a vertical rise of 2,212 feet from its base altitude of 6,640 feet, Sierra-at-Tahoe is home to 46 exciting slopes and trails and has something for everyone. The mountain’s impressive vertical drop makes for some challenging and exhilarating runs, such as Sugar ‘n’ Spice, the resort’s longest trail at two-and-a-half miles. Three quarters of the trails rank as intermediate and advanced, with the remaining quarter designated for beginners. Three express quad lifts, one triple lift, five double chairs, two magic carpet surface lifts, and one tubing surface tow access the resort’s various terrain. But Sierra-at-Tahoe has far more to offer its guests than just great runs. The mountain boasts no less than six separate terrain parks including a 17-foot Zaugg Superpipe and a standard halfpipe. Extreme riders will find rails, boxes, table tops and jumps of all sizes in spots like The Alley, Bashful, the Burton Progression Park, Smokey and Snowshoe. Sierra-at-Tahoe is also known for its tubing hill, which features 245 feet of lightning-fast packed snow, rollers and high-banked turns. Other amenities at the resort include three maintained miles of snowshoe trails with interpretive signs and scenic hideaways, as well as five backcountry gates that offer extreme skiers and riders access to some of the steepest, deepest terrain in the region. The resort also features on-mountain themed adventure zones with various signage, sound effects and smoke machines, just for kids. From treehouses, caves and secret hideaways to banked turns and mini jumps, the zones are designed to keep kids entertained while educating them about local history and native wildlife.
New for the 2012-13 season, Sierra-at-Tahoe introduces the Burton Star Wars Experience, the first snowboard park in the world that features iconic Star Wars themes to introduce children as young as three to snowboarding.
As advanced as some of the mountain may be, Sierra-at-Tahoe is still a great place for beginners. The resort offers a selection of lesson packages that are designed for first-timers, beginners or intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
