Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort welcomed the first beginner skiers and snowboarders to Easy Street, a newly constructed learning and development area featuring two new carpet conveyor lifts that make getting up the beginner hill a breeze, so skiers and riders can focus on learning to come down the mountain. Easy Street is 11 total acres of sculpted smart terrain™ – gently banked and shaped features that naturally guide skiers and riders into turns and stops so that they are able to learn the fundamentals more quickly.

Easy Street is just the latest evidence of Sierra Resort’s commitment to being one of the best places to learn to ski or ride at Lake Tahoe. The resort also features a 2.5 mile beginner trail from the top of the mountain – so even green circle skiers and riders can enjoy the spectacular lake views, delicious food at the 360° Smokehouse BBQ and a nice, long run down the mountain. Because really, who wants to be confined to a bunny hill on the lower mountain all day long?
Sierra Resort also offers a Family Private Lesson which allows groups of two to five people to take a lesson together no matter what the ability level or type of equipment. So skiers and snowboarders from beginner to advanced can all get the benefit of professional instruction (and take advantage of the Ski School Only lift line) while riding up the same chair lift together, and then everyone can come down on a trail that is within their comfort level.
And if you have adults age 13+ in your group who have never put on a pair of skis or a snowboard before, Sierra Resort offers a $35 Learn to Ski or Ride beginner package that includes a 2.5 hour lesson, equipment rental, and a limited access lift ticket. The Learn to Ski or Ride package must be booked online, 24 hours in advance and quantities are limited.
And because learning doesn’t stop just because you have mastered the blue squares and black diamonds, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort also offers expert skiers and riders the Backcountry Lesson. Designed for skiers and riders who are interested in exploring Huckleberry Canyon – 320 acres of raw, steep, and deep terrain – the Backcountry Lesson offers an introduction to avalanche equipment, route finding, and the skills you need to travel through uncharted terrain. At just $49 per lesson, the Backcountry Lesson is one of the best deals in the ski world.
