SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort will open for the 2011-12 season on Saturday with very limited terrain. Due to low snow, Sierra will open Easy Rider Express chairlift accessing half of Broadway trail.

The green circle run will have a jib and rail park with small to medium features, including new boxes and rails.

“Winter has yet to kick into high gear, and with limited snowmaking 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.”

Passholders can come pick up their season passes or daily ticket buyers can test their abilities for only $30 a day for adults or young adults and $10 for kids. Limited operations on opening day will include limted ski school operations, ice cold beer and food in The Pub and Mama’s Kitchen, available gear in the rental shops, and holiday shopping at Sierra Mt. Sports.
