Keep Sierra Clean

Date: 10/21/2012 - 10:00am - 3:00pm
Location: Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort

Everyone and Anyone who loves Sierra Resort is invited to come up to participate in Keep Sierra Clean and ride the lift as we clean up the mountain in preparation for winter! 

We'll be trying to break last year's trash collection of 1,800 pounds - come on out and lend a day to giving back to the environment that gives you so much joy all winter long. 

This year’s collection effort will cover some of the most impacted trails and base area locations, as well as spread out across areas that have not been covered by previous year’s events. All of the trash will be weighed and collected, with prizes given in a variety of categories. There will be complimentary lunch served with live music and a ski/snowboard swap, so pull out your retro gear and get ready to swap til 3pm!

Participants should come prepared to navigate steep and sometimes rocky terrain with sturdy footwear. Work gloves are recommended. To help keep the event low-impact, participants should also bring their own water bottles and buckets for trash collection.

In an effort to give back to the community that supports us, we will be holding a food drive to benefit the El Dorado Food Bank. Those who would like to participate can bring a canned or non perishable food item, and Sierra will collect all donations and deliver them to the Food Bank. Come be a part of this fun community event!
