It’s not over ‘til the fat lady sings....this storm has already brought in 42” of snow at Sierra and we are loving it! Conditions are spectacular, and they just keep getting better as we get ready to wrap up Sierra’s Spring Fiesta with another early load for season pass holders, a few killer signature events, and tons of fresh POW to play in!

Pass Holder Perk Alert

Set your alarms and plan on getting up here early, because once again we’re hooking up all Sierra Season Pass holders with early access to all the untouched goods. West Bowl Express and Easy Rider will spin at 8am Saturday morning EXCLUSIVELY for season pass holders, so grab your snorkel and get ready to dive into plenty of untouched powder!

6th Annual Buckle Up Big Air

On Saturday, April 14th the 6th Annual Buckle Up Big Air slopestyle event goes down on Broadway. This event is very near and dear to our hearts at Sierra, as it’s held each year in loving memory of Sierra team rider Greg Smith, to spread seat belt safety awareness to ours and your local youth with a fun day of snow culture.  

An $1,800 cash purse is up for grabs for open divisions with prizes and swag for amateur divisions. Registration will be in the Aspen Cafe at 7:15 am with practice at starting at 8:30 am and the competition/rider's meeting is at 10:30! All competitors will need to have a season pass or lift ticket. Discount competitor tickets will be available for $35, spectator tickets for $53.

A brand new PBR Snowboard will be given away along with some other sweet prizes and swag! Enjoy live mariachi music, taco eating contests, and pinata bashing while kicking back in the sunshine at the baja grill to see who is crowned Salsa King, or Queen!
