SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. December 24, 2011 -Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort plans to fire up two more lifts and two more carpets accessing a total of seven trails, the Wild Mountain Children’s Center, and a tow-accessed snow play area. With Easy Rider Express already turning, accessing Sierra Resort's legendary beginner terrain, Easy Street, and a nationally ranked freestyle terrain park, Sierra Resort opens Rock Garden on Saturday morning, providing two additional trails in time for the weekend. On Monday morning, Nob Hill will begin turning, accessing Corkscrew and Upper Main for the holidays, all for only $49 for adults and $10 for kids allowing guests to enjoy the winter experience without breaking the bank.

“In all of our on-mountain surveys, guests have shown that one of the reasons they choose Sierra is its affordability. This is about people getting out on the snow and having fun,” said John Rice, Sierra-at-Tahoe’s General Manager.

With Sierra-at-Tahoe’s award-winning terrain parks and family programs, along with its friendly staff, the resort continues to live up to its reputation for great value.
