SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort opened for the 2011-12 season on Saturday, Dec. 17, with very limited terrain — Easy Rider Express chairlift accessing half of Broadway trail. This is a green run and will have a jib and rail park with small to medium features.
Building on the reputation as one of the nation’s top terrain park resorts, Sierra Resort offers a jib park consisting of multiple features including new boxes and rails giving eager guests a chance to get their park legs back underneath them. Forecasts show patterns of change toward the end of the month potentially allowing Sierra Resort to open more trails conditions pending.
“Winter has yet to kick into high gear and with limited snow making, we rely on Mother Nature. We definitely have early season conditions on the mountain,” said John Rice, general manager. “But we know our skiers and riders are hungry to get those first couple of runs in and take a few laps through the Broadway terrain park. As we get more snow, more terrain will open.”
This is a great time for passholders to come pick up their season passes or daily ticket buyers to test their abilities for only $30 a day for adults or young adults and $10 for kids. Limited operations on opening day will include limited ski school operations, ice-cold refreshing beer and food in The Pub and Mama’s Kitchen, available gear in the rental shops, and great holiday shopping at Sierra Mt. Sports.
