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
Sierra's Prime Location
Need a family photo for your next holiday card? Take Grandview Express chair to the top of the mountain and soak in views of beautiful Lake Tahoe from a peak of 8,852 feet. After you’ve nailed the shot, shred down 2,000 acres of your own personal playground, whether it’s on our top-to-bottom beginner run, Sugar ‘n’ Spice, or something more advanced.
Sierra is just a stone's throw away from Sacramento (If you could throw a stone 91 miles - we believe in you!). Traveling from even further? We’ve got you covered. Sierra is only 51 miles from the Reno/Tahoe International Airport and 187 miles from San Francisco International Airport. The South Tahoe Express Shuttle provides round-trip transportation from Reno-Tahoe International Airport to South Lake Tahoe.
Mother Nature blesses Sierra with an average of 400+ inches of fresh pow every winter, making Sierra your personal winter playground from late November to late April.
Activities and Events at Sierra:
Tubing, Snow Play + Family Fun
No winter vacation to Lake Tahoe is complete until you have raced down the tubing hill at Sierra-at-Tahoe in a gigantic doughnut, building snowmen (or snowballs!) or eating smore’s while warming up with hot chocolate around a fire pit at Blizzard Mountain!
Explore Sierra at a Different Pace
Sierra-at-Tahoe isn’t just for skiers and snowboarders, it’s very anyone and everyone that likes to enjoy fresh Tahoe air and 100% organic GMO-free snow. That’s why we maintain 3 miles of snowshoe trails that wind through scenic hideaways and pristine alpine terrain. Take a self-guided romp through the woods and enjoy all the mountain has to offer.
There's Endless Fun on + off the Slopes!
There’s more fun to be had once you’re off the slopes here at Sierra - from live music, competitions, events + more. So, once you’ve had your snow fix, rest those legs + scope out our event calendar to see what’s crackin.
