Explore the Sierra Playgrounds

Established in 1993, Sierra-at-Tahoe has been at the helm of terrain park design + progression for over 20 years. What was once known as “The Circuit,” the Sierra Playgrounds are now made up of 8 nationally recognized parks that have been featured in countless film segments and magazines. A breeding ground for Olympians with a strong focus on progression, we provide playful and diverse features for all ability levels.
