Temperatures are dropping as the winds from the west become stronger bringing in winter storms. The first snowflakes have already fallen and winter is on the way! With predictions of another amazing winter, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort remains focused on giving our guest exactly what they want, endless powder, amazing tree skiing, nationally recognized terrain parks, South Shore’s only Superpipe, and the best value in Tahoe.

Adding to our already amazing mountain experience, Sierra Resort is excited to introduce some new additions to the mountain such as Huckleberry Snowcat Tours, The Burton Riglet Park, and more value.

The new Huckleberry Backcountry Snowcat Tours will take expert skiers and riders straight to the edge of Huckleberry Canyon, helping guests save energy for their powder turns. For those ready to unlock the extreme, Huckleberry Canyon offers cliff drops, cornice drops, rock chutes, open bowls, gladed runs, and powder pillows.

The Burton Riglet Park is another addition to the mountain this season. Sierra Resort has teamed up with the industry leader, Burton Snowboards, to introduce kids as young as three years old to the sport of snowboarding by providing them the proper equipment and perfect place to learn.

Along with the Burton Riglet Park, Sierra Resort continues to build on its reputation as the place to learn to ski and ride in Lake Tahoe. This past off-season Sierra Resort hired Robert “Booie” Alward as the new Ski and Snowboard School Director. Alward comes to Sierra Resort from Loon Mountain where he acted as the Snowsports Director and before that was the Ski School Director at Vail Mountain.

Finally, Sierra Resort continues to be known as the resort with the most value. Ski or Ride for just $51/day with a 3-Pak! 3-Pak tickets are valid any day of the 2011-12 winter season with absolutely no blackout dates and do not need to be used consecutively. It’s the ultimate value. After December 16, it is still a great value at only $54/day, which results in a savings of approximately $20 a day.

Sierra Resort didn’t add a new lodge to the base this season or build any new lifts, instead we remain true to our mission, great mountain, great service, and great people. If this sounds like what you are looking for this season come visit Sierra-at-Tahoe. See you on the slopes!
