Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort delivers a unique snowsports experience on Lake Tahoe’s South Shore. The resort in Twin Bridges, California, averages 460 inches of snow — and has already received some in advance of the 2016-17 winter season.

Sierra makes everyone feel at home — from experienced skiers and boarders to those getting on the snow for the first time. Here’s a look at what’s new at the resort for this season:

EXPANDED SCULPTED LEARNING TERRAIN

Learning to ski or snowboard is all about balance, control and movement. To help with this, Sierra has an expanded learning environment that features Smart Terrain — designated, sculpted terrain that fosters an elevated learning curve so guests can progress more efficiently and gain confidence in their new sport.

REVAMPED MENU ON THE MOUNTAIN

As no stranger to emerging food trends, Sierra has revamped its menus at the base area and on-mountain dining locations in 2016-17. The resort will continue to source sustainable, healthier food options in the Solstice Eatery, done with the hungry snowsport enthusiast in mind.

BIDDING WATER BOTTLES FAREWELL

Sierra-at-Tahoe has partnered with Vapur, a California-based company that makes flexible, reusable and eco-responsible “Anti-Bottles.” The resort will have four water stations where guests are encouraged to fill personal water bottles or Vapur Anti-Bottles. The new program aligns with Keep Sierra Green, the resort’s environmental initiative.

STAKING A CLAIM IN SOUTH LAKE TAHOE

The resort will have an expanded guest services space this winter in South Lake Tahoe, at the intersection of Highway 50 and Lake Tahoe Boulevard. Tickets, reservation, retail and additional information will be available in the new space, bringing Sierra closer to the city.

POWDER ALLIANCE GROWS AROUND THE WORLD

Sierra-at-Tahoe is one of 15 resorts in the Powder Alliance — the newest of which is Kiroro Snow World in Japan. Sierra passholders can score three free days there and at each of the alliance’s 13 other resorts — which include powder stashes in California, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and British Columbia.

NEW TERRAIN ONLINE

Sierra is blending technology and fun with a redesigned website. The site will allow the opportunity to purchase more products — including lessons and rentals — before getting to the resort.
