Rippers

Contact: Dan Moore
Ability Level: Beginner,Intermediate
Age Range: 3-4 or 5-12

The Rippers program is the first step into Sierra Teams, and is perfect for young skiers/snowboarders (ages 5-12 or 3-4 with Mini Rippers) who are mastering the fundamentals and are ready for consistent support. With the same coach, Rippers will enjoy hours of dedicated coaching in a fun, team environment. We provide parents with an outline of training goals each week, as well as a slew of fun Rippers-only competitions and activities, like Ski With Maddie Bowman Day, to encourage love for the sport and exposure to aspects of upper level skiing/snowboarding including apline racing, park skiing/riding and moguls. We believe competition is an excellent means for progression and motivator for ski development.

Sking/Riding at Sierra has Many Perks

We love our passholders and show it often by offering Early Loads on select powder days through the season. Sierra's wind protected lifts and trails make Sierra-at-Tahoe your best bet on stormy days. Our hard-working crews know every minute on the hill counts and makes it their mission to open on time. Our passholders get hooked up with 20% discounts on food, new gear and rentals with My Sierra Rewards! Sierra is the closest major resort to Northern California (ensuring you less driving and more skiing/riding). Sierra's blessed with natural snow from heaven, not hoses.

Passholder Benefits

Every Tuesday we’re turning our attention to Sierra’s Nationally-recognized terrain parks by giving our guests a chance to design features + eventually dream up + build their very own terrain park.
