TWIN BRIDGES, Calif. — As the result of a snowy start to the winter season, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is now fully open. The mountain was officially 100 percent open on Sunday, Jan. 3, helped by recent storms in the Tahoe Basin.

Sierra-at-Tahoe now has 2,212 vertical feet and more than 2,000 acres open for skiers and snowboarders. This includes Huckleberry Canyon, which is accessed by five backcountry gates.

Last season, Sierra-at-Tahoe closed in March due to a lack of snowfall. For more information, visit
