There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Tahoe Weather Discussion is calling for a shift in weather patterns around January 16. A BIG shift! Will winter finally come out of hiatus and grace us with its presence? Only time will tell.
Either way here at Sierra we want to recognize those doing everything they can to keep the mountain open. If you think we've been sitting back and waiting for it to snow you are incorrect.
Our snowmakers literally have been working around the clock and when weather permits blowing snow. We do not have millions of dollars in snowmaking equipment or the latest and greatest but we are making magic with the guns that we do have. Also, we'd like to tip our hats to those on the park staff. Each day guests have the option of more than a dozen jibs and rails along with a jump!
While we've been optimistic throughout the winter it is fair to say that we are ecstatic about the storm that is on it's way. Our lifts are ready to spin and when we get that large dump we'll be ready to go. Our lifts are wind-protected so on those stormy days when the pow is fresh, you can ride Sierra, our parking is right in front of the mountain so you are on the lift quickly, and our burgers are $10.95 AND that comes with the fries and soda!
