TWIN BRIDGES, California. – April 7, 2023- Sierra-at-Tahoe is extending the 2022/23 season until Sunday, April 23 with a bonus Customer Appreciation Day on Monday, April 24 to benefit local youth + recreation in South Lake Tahoe.
Sitting at 680”, the second highest annual snowfall in Sierra’s 76-year history, this will provide guests and loyal Season Passholders to take advantage of bluebird days, spring skiing conditions, and a stacked lineup of events this weekend through closing day.
April 17-April 23 Operations
Starting Monday, April 17 through Sunday, April 23, Sierra will spin Grandview Express, Easy Rider Express, and Rock Garden chairlifts giving guests access to over 30 trails that range from green level groomers all the way to black level terrain in Jack’s Bowl. In addition, south shore’s only Halfpipe along with the legendary terrain parks will continue to be modified for eager park riders to lap via Rock Garden and Easy Rider Express. West Bowl, Huckleberry Gates 4+5, and the Backside will be closed to focus on frontside operations.
Hours of operation will remain the same, open 7 days a week from 9:00AM-4:00PM on weekdays and 8:30AM-4:00PM on weekends.
Spring is the perfect time to learn to ski or ride with warm temperatures and soft conditions. Adult Ski + Ride School and Wild Mountain Children’s Center will be operating and available on a first-come first-serve basis—walk-ins are welcome! Rentals will also be available for any of your skiing or riding needs.
April 24, 10:00AM-2:00PM: Customer Appreciation Day
To close out a near record-breaking year, Sierra will treat guests to an extra day of shredding the slopes to make final turns and reminisce about the plentiful powder-filled days this comeback season. All lift ticket proceeds from Customer Appreciation Day will benefit local youth recreation + education in South Lake Tahoe, including baseball, soccer, swimming and more.
Sierra will operate a limited number of lifts on April 24, from 10:00AM-2:00PM, including Grandview Express + Rock Garden + Easy Rider Express. Guests can pay tribute to Paul Beran, former Director of Mountain Operations who left a legacy at Sierra and was a pillar in the community, at the top of Grandview Express at 2:00PM for the official ‘last run of the season’ spinning the last chair in his honor.
Last call at the Sierra Pub will be 2:45PM, just in time for the ending of all winter operations at 3:00PM.
