Sierra-at-Tahoe to Open for the 2018/19 Season

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – November 27, 2018 - Sierra-at-Tahoe will be opening for the 2018/19 winter season on November 30, 2018. With snow in the forecast into Friday, Sierra is excited to have three lifts and one surface lift scheduled to operate, conditions permitting. Early season conditions are present throughout the mountain and guests are asked to obey all signs and closures, watch for unmarked obstacles and to stay on groomed runs.

“Mother Nature has been delivering the goods this past week,” says General Manager, John Rice. “We are excited to have a snowy start to the season and look forward to seeing everyone on the mountain this Friday.”

Sierra is scheduled to spin Grandview Express, Nob Hill and Easy Rider Express, as well as Magic Carpet. Sierra Snowsports School will be offering adult and children’s lessons, and snowplay at Blizzard Mountain will be open for everyone to enjoy.

The first hundred chairs on Grandview Express will be treated to a cup of Drink Coffee Do Stuff coffee and KIND Snacks while they take their first lift ride of the season. After guests have enjoyed a few turns, we invite them to join the Sierra Family at 12PM on Solstice Plaza to sample local brews from Sierra while kicking off the season with a toast. Dining will be available in Mama’s Kitchen, Java Junction and The Pub. 

Whether people are looking to enjoy a beer on the plaza deck, pick up their season pass, or make a few turns, Sierra-at-Tahoe is excited to kick off another winter season. Stay up to date on open terrain and conditions via
