Sierra-at-Tahoe will be CLOSED on Friday, March 1 due to forecasted "Blizzard Conditions"

This storm is coming in strong, cold, fast, and DEEP with models agreeing and forecasts ranging from 5-8 feet at Sierra over the next 3 days. Taking a note from the playbook last year, we have made the decision to proactively CLOSE OPERATIONS for Friday, 3/1 to preserve the safety of our guests + employees during the most intense wave of the storm. Please check back for updates as the storm rolls through on operational plans for Saturday. BLIZZARD WARNING

We are proud to re-open after temporarily closing during COVID and the Caldor Fire! Finding a sitter for little ones who aren't ready to hit the slopes isn't always easy on vacation. Sierra-at-Tahoe alleviates this problem by offering Sierra-at-Tahoe Child Care Center (aka Wild Mountain Daycare). Sierra has proudly been providing quality care for our guests children since 1994, here in our licensed facility (CA License #093600514) located right at the base of the mountain.

The Daycare is proud to offer 2 different experiences to choose from to keep your young child safely entertained during your visit here at Sierra-at-Tahoe!


Professional childcare is available for children aged 18-months to 35 months (just prior to turning 3). Don't worry about your child being potty-trained, at the Sierra-at-Tahoe Child Care Center they don't need to be.

Our Daycare Only Program (does not include ski lessons) will be available 8:30am - 3:30pm.

Our Cubbie Program is for 3-4 year-old children who are ready for an introduction to skiing through our snow experience program. If interested, please see our Cubbie Program Lessons HERE.


While at the Daycare, children will participate in a variety of fun and stimulating preschool activities. Children will stay busy exploring art projects and construction toys, plus music, dance, and story activities. Young children will love our outside activities too, including adventure walks, snow paint, lots of toys and tons of fun snow experience. After lunch, the children will be given the opportunity to rest or take a nap if needed during our quiet time.

Lunch & Snacks

Parents don’t need to worry about meals either. At the Childcare Center, all of the cubbies and daycare children will be provided yummy and healthy; kid-favorite lunches and morning and afternoon snacks.
