Sierra Gets National Recognition

We don't like to brag or anything but we can't begin to tell you how stoked we are to be recognized by TransWorld SNOWboarding in their 2012 Resort Poll. We like to think we have a pretty good mountain, great parks, amazing value, awesome snow, and an unbeliveable vibe, TransWorld seems to think the same. Year after year we strive to be one of the best and it's an honor to be recognized by an awesome publication like TransWorld

Resort Poll Coverage

The Resort Poll ranks mountains based on mountain features such as parks and pipe, terrain, and other areas such as vibe, snowfall, lodging, food, and etcetera.

“Every year we ask our readers to rank the best three resorts they rode at in the last year, judging everything from jumps to grooming to rail variety. TransWorld readers have voted Sierra-at-Tahoe into the Resort Poll Top 10 year after year. Our readers love the parks and powder, and the resort consistently ranks in Top 10 Vibe. You know the vibe is good just by the popularity of the Sierra-at-Tahoe hoodies—their riders are loyal.” said TransWorld Editor-in-Chief Annie Fast.

The rankings speak to the commitment by Sierra to creating and maintaining innovative freestyle terrain that appeals to an ever-growing demographic of skiers and snowboarders.   

Designed, built, and maintained throughout the season by Snow Park Technology (SPT) trained operators, who are the lead innovators in the industry, the freestyle terrain at Sierra offers an experience that caters to the young and old, first-time jibbers and seasoned park riders, families and college students alike.

Sierra Resort was recognized among the Top 10 Best Parks in the nation, earned by scoring high in specific categories like jump and rail design, grooming, variety of features, overall vibe, and park challenge. Sierra also landed in the top ten for the following categories:

The cumulative rankings for Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort are:

Sierra Resort General Manager, John Rice commented “Sierra is honored that TransWorld’s readers would consider us one of the top resorts in the country. Our commitment to quality parks starts with our staff and, in return, benefits our world-class athletes and faithful riders who call Sierra home. To be recognized as one of the best makes it all worthwhile.”

Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is proud to be among TransWorld SNOWboarding’s top resorts year after year, after year. 

So where do we go from here? Up! We are stoked to build on our success and continue to commit ourselves to building the best mountain and parks in the Nation. Make sure to pick up a copy of the mag or visit transworld.snowboarding.net for all things snowboarding.

Sierra Athletes Throwdown to Remember the Biggest Season Ever

What will you remember about the 2010/11 season? First thought- snow! This winter marked the biggest snow winter in recorded Sierra history. Chest deep pow days aside, all that snow gave the Terrain Park Program plenty to work with. Our Superpipe was built earlier than ever, The Aspens jump line was born and after a lot of digging, Bashful and The Alley spawned fresh multi-features. Sierra team riders and skiers celebrated all this glory with a private session on one of Terrain Park's larger creations. Watch, enjoy, and may the season of 10/11 never be forgotten!
