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
Sierra-at-Tahoe has long been known as a gathering place for families of all ages to come together and play. Whether your kids are just learning how to make turns or you ride from top to bottom, together, you’re sure to make new memories on the mountain that will last a lifetime. Sierra prides itself on its family-friendly layout, from its sculpted learning terrain to its meal offerings. Explore it all, below, and start planning your next family getaway!
Service, Staff and Personality
A combination of friendliness and playful vibes ensure that your Sierra experience will be nothing short of a good time. We believe that skiing and riding are at their best when they’re rooted in play, and you’ll find that’s easy to accomplish at Sierra, all while keeping safety in mind.
Sierra has several “Slow Zones” that visibly designate an entire run or area as a “Go Slow Area”. These Zones are marked with yellow fencing and are patrolled by Ski Patrol and Mountain Safety to ensure a maximum 15 mph speed limit.
We are an avid supporter of “Smart Style” - a Freestyle Terrain Safety initiative developed by the National Ski Areas Association and Burton Snowboards.
The style consists of:
- Make A Plan
- Look Before You Leap
- Easy Style It
- Respect Gets Respect
