SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – October 14, 2013 – Regarded as one of the top magazines in the industry, TransWorld SNOWboarding has been ranking the best resorts in North America for over a decade. In 2014 TransWorld SNOWboarding ranked Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort amongst the best mountains in North America.

The Resort Poll ranks mountains based on mountain features such as parks and halfpipe, terrain, and other areas including vibe, snowfall, lodging, value, and food. Each year TransWorld readers are polled to rank their three favorite resorts based on their overall experience.

Sierra Resort not only offers innovative terrain parks, but also a 2,000 acre mountain receiving an average of 480 inches of snowfall annually, giving guests access to a powder paradise and variety of terrain for all abilities. Sierra Resort was also recognized as the eighth best halfpipe in the nation and number one for value!

Designed, built, and maintained throughout the season by Snow Park Technology (SPT) trained operators, who are the leading 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.

It’s an honor that TransWorld’s readers would consider us one of the top resorts in the country.
