Sierra-at-Tahoe has long been a local’s favorite and was voted the best resort by the readers of Sacramento News and Review. The reasons it is a longtime favorite is because it offers great skiing, fantastic snow, and affordable prices. Die hard Sierra fans don't want fancy shops or fine-dining on the mountain, they want a pure mountain escape, they want snow, steeps and trees, and terrain parks. 

Sierra Nevada Mountains

The resort is located on the western edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which makes it the closest major resort to Sacramento. Its optimal position on the eastern side ensures that the storms coming in from the ocean head straight towards the resort. These storms deliver an average of 480 inches of snowfall each year. Plus, the predominately north-facing slopes help to keep the snow in great condition, even days after a storm. The no-frills approach to running a resort, with the added geographical and meterological conditions, help to make this a stunning resort. The mountain has a strikingly diverse amount of terrain that is suitable for all ability levels. Additionally, it is next to Huckleberry Canyon and Mott Canyon, which have some of the area’s most thrilling back country and steepest chutes. Enjoy the experience of the area and learn about what snowboarders will discover.

Off the Slopes

The Lake Tahoe region is brimming with additional winter activities. For the more adventurous there is snowmobiling, snowcat skiing, dog sledding, and ice climbing available. Or for those seeking a slower pace, cross-country, snowshoeing, tubing and ice skating are all great choices.  There is also a wealth of things to do indoors as well, swimming, gambling, shopping just to name a few.

In line with its purist philosophy, there is no slope-side lodging, but there is an incredible assortment of lodging options around the ski resort including lively casino hotels, quiet cabins, secluded lodges, or spacious condominiums and vacation rental homes. The resort does have a nice selection of restaurants and casual eateries on the mountain.
