As the chief snow reporter for Sierra-at-Tahoe, my lifestyle is quite different than most. My work day begins not-so-bright and VERY EARLY at 5am. People are constantly asking me, “How can you get up so early and still sound so excited to be at work every day?” Well, before joining the Sierra Family, I never considered myself to be a morning person at all; those of you who know me well can vouch for me!! However, the many perks of this job make each day totally exciting and worth waking up for!
Upon arriving at the Resort, I found myself mesmerized by the beauty of this area as the clouds hung low around the mountain tops and the full moon peeked out from behind the snow covered trees. Lucky for all of you, I took a break from piecing together the giant puzzle known as the snow report to go snap a photo so I could share this magical moment.
After a few hours of reporting the excellent surface conditions, miles of fresh corduroy, and the debut of a brand new terrain park on Upper Main, I couldn’t wait to go check it all out for myself! This brings me to the number one perk of working at Sierra Resort, first chair is only a few steps away!
When you start your day off in the dark, you can imagine how exciting it is to catch that first glimpse of the sun at the top of Grandview Express – it was just the inspiration I needed to write this blog!
As a South Lake Tahoe Local, I've become quite jaded when it comes to good snow conditions. Thanks to the North-facing slopes of the mountain, the hard work of our grooming crew, and the 77 inches of snow we've received so far this season - surface conditions have remained excellent! Coming from a spoiled local - that says a lot! Carving down fresh corduroy like this every day makes it pretty hard not to completely love working at this resort!
Even though I have to start my day far before the crack-of-dawn, I get to spend my time in a beautiful paradise known as Sierra-at-Tahoe….well that truly is “livin’ the dream!” Hope all of you make your way up here at some point this season to join me in this sweet life in the snow!
