2020/21 Season Recap

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

Cheers to you, Sierra fam. We made the most of a most uncertain season and had a pretty darn good time in the process. Thinking back to where we were last fall, wondering what this season would be like, we can’t help but feel immense gratitude for all of our guests as well as our staff.

Change isn’t always easy, but you adapted with us. Even when your goggles fogged from keeping that mask over your nose in the lift line, you were smiling because that run you just had was worth it. And that’s the beauty of sliding on snow. It’s why there’s such a strong sense of community among us skiers + snowboarders. The changes made this past season did not take away from the things that bring us together in the first place: love of the outdoors, drawing your own line down a blank canvas of fresh powder, stomping a new trick in the playgrounds, the joy of celebrating someone’s first turns, and all the inevitable laughter + stoke that comes from a day on the mountain.

We know it wasn’t always easy, so thank you. Thank you for adapting, for your resilience, patience + respect, and for making the 2020/21 season so much fun. As the season fades into sweet memories, let’s take a look back at some highlights.
