Sierra-at-Tahoe extends operations to late April
March 15, 2017
Sierra-at-Tahoe recently announced that will continue operations through April 23.
The resort also plans to honor guests with customer appreciation day on Monday, April 24, which will represent the final day of operations for the 2016-17 season.
The announcement, made earlier this week in a press release, put Sierra-at-Tahoe in the same operational range as other Tahoe resorts, including Heavenly Mountain Resort and Northstar California. A whole series of factors — including people's interest as it relates to the time of the year — are taken into account when a mountain decides how long to operate, Thea Hardy, public relations official with Sierra-at-Tahoe, told the Tribune earlier this year.
As part of Sierra-at-Tahoe's customer appreciation day, skiers and riders of all ages can purchase a lift ticket for only $35 for the day. Lift ticket proceeds that day will benefit youth recreation and education activities in South Lake Tahoe.
"With 537 inches of natural snowfall and counting, this season has truly been one for the books," John Rice, general manager, said in a press release. "Customer appreciation day is all about saying thank you. We want to show our most loyal guests that we value this community and are willing to support year-round recreational opportunities for our kids."
Sierra-at-Tahoe will operate a limited number of lifts from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the day, including Grandview Express and Easy Rider Express.
All guests are invited to join Rice and the rest of Sierra's team for the official "last run of the season." The run will meet at the top of Grandview Express, beginning at 2 p.m. Last call at the Sierra Pub will be 2:45 p.m. and all winter operation will officially end at 3 p.m.
Season passes for 2017-18 will also be available for purchase.
