Current Operations Update

Operations Update

Sierra-at-Tahoe has suspended winter operations, as of Monday, March 16.
This includes all skiing/snowboarding operations, tubing & snow play areas, restaurant outlets, rental and retail shops. Our Season Pass Office will be open daily, 8:30am-4pm to assist with any questions regarding your Season Pass or My Sierra Rewards membership (reachable at or 530.659.7453 x208).

A Note From Sierra-at-Tahoe General Manager, John Rice:

It is with a heavy heart we must announce Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort will be suspending winter operations beginning tomorrow, Monday, March 16. Conditions around the mountain have deteriorated to the point where we can no longer deliver a product that meets our standards. Although temperatures remain high and the forecast lacks precipitation, we are fully committed to resuming operations if we receive an adequate amount of snow.

We want to sincerely thank our passholders, guests and employees, who continued to bring their best, day in and day out. We are fueled by your smiles, which we had no shortage of, even during these past few days.

After exhausting all possible tools - even with snowmaking at every opportunity and strategic movement of snow, mother nature came up short. Our north-facing location paired with our summer trail maintenance allowed us to remain open since December 12 with 1/3 of our average natural snowfall.

Thank you again, for your continued support of Sierra-at-Tahoe. Snow is not our only asset, as we are composed of an outstanding group of individuals who love this sport, this business and this very mountain. Without your trust and involvement, we would not survive. We can't wait to provide a place for you to make more great memories with friends and family.

This isn't goodbye; it's see you soon.

- John

Touring extensively along the West Coast and Europe, these ladies have a camaraderie and collective stage presence of a well seasoned mega band. Concert Info ...


Venue - Lake Tahoe Golf Course, 2500 Emerald Bay Road, South Lake Tahoe, CA


From the onset, Liam McCormick, the mastermind behind The Family Crest, knew that Beneath the Brine was an audacious project. But so is The Family Crest itself. The Family Crest was started as a recording project in 2009 with co-founder John Seeterlin (bass). “We were in another band and had become disillusioned about what that band had become about,” explains McCormick. “Everyone wanted to be rock stars at the expense of the music. John and I were actually planning on leaving music at that point because we wanted something that in ten years we could be proud of.” Concert Info ...

Will Sierra reopen this season?

Yes, given enough new snow, the right density of snow and forecasted temperatures. We will do everything in our power to reopen for more turns this season. We're not ready for 2014-15 to be over either!

Will Sierra refund my 2014-15 season pass?

No, our season passes are non-refundable as stated at the time of purchase. Don't forget your Unlimited Season Pass can be used for 4*, Sunday-Friday days of free skiing or riding at Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows; Value Passholders receive 2* days. Check for current conditions and operating status.

Will Sierra refund my 3-PAK or 10-PAK?

No, our multi-day PAKs (lift ticket, rental, lesson, children's programs) will not be refunded. However, we will try our best to reopen this spring during which the PAKs will be valid; we are also considering options for unused days in the event we cannot reopen.

Will the Equinox Spring Festival continue?

Yes, we're still planning to host the music series in the meantime. If we get enough snow to reopen, we'll assess options to host the on-snow events. Please see the Spring Events tab for more information.
