Blessed with an average yearly snowfall of 480 inches, wind-protected slopes, incredible tree lined skiing, extreme back country terrain, a laid-back vibe, and family-friendly atmosphere, Sierra-at-Tahoe is the resort to visit!

Skiing

With a ski area of 2000 acres that’s home to some of Lake Tahoe’s best terrain, it’s no wonder Sierra is the local’s favourite Tahoe mountain. ‘Easy Street’ offers 11 acres of sculpted Smart Terrain, gently banked turns and shaped features which naturally guide skiers and snowboarders into turns and stops so that groups are able to learn the fundamentals of skiing and riding more quickly.

Dedicated lifts make it easier for beginners to get up the hill, and there’s plenty of challenge for experienced skiers, who will find a wealth of exciting blacks over in the West Bowl.
