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

Private lessons are a great way to get started on the slopes or to elevate your skiing and riding to the next level. With one-on-one or small group instruction, a student can often progress his/her abilities more in one lesson than in an entire season without professional instruction. 


Sierra caters to all levels of skiers and riders by pairing up the appropriate instructor for each ability and age. Choose from 1 hour, 3 hours or a full day of one-on-one instruction to help improve your ability. This individualized experience provides instant feedback and personal attention helping you fine tune your technique while enjoying a day out on the mountain. *Please note a reservation request and private lessons are subject to instructor availability. Forms must be submitted 48 hours in advance.
