TWIN BRIDGES, Calif. — Following the storm last week that left more than 15 inches of fresh snow in the region, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort opened last Friday. With early-season conditions still present, the resort will operate limited terrain accessed by the Grandview Express and Easy Rider Express.

“We are excited to welcome skiers and riders back to Sierra-at-Tahoe now that the winter season is officially underway,” said John Rice, general manager of Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort. “Mother Nature has opened the storm door, and with more snow in the forecast early (this) week we’re prepared to open additional terrain as conditions permit.”

Sierra-at-Tahoe accumulated 15 inches over a 24-hour span last Thursday and Friday, which brought the total season snowfall to 40 inches. As conditions permit, Sierra Resort will continue to open additional terrain. Sierra-at-Tahoe lift and trail status updates can be viewed at http://sierraattahoe.com/mountain/conditions.

“Those who haven’t visited Sierra in some time are going to be pleased with the transformation,” Rice said. “We’ve made significant investments in the last year to enhance the base area with the recent completion of the Solstice Plaza, and have implemented new learning programs and terrain that will make it easier than ever for those just starting out to build their skills.”

Daily ski and snowboard lessons are available for all ages. If booked online in advance, adults ages 13 and older can learn to ski or ride for as little as $45 Sunday through Friday, non-holiday. Food and beverage outlets at the base area are now open daily.

Beginning last Saturday, lift tickets were available at regular season afternoon rates. Tickets begin at $79 for adults ages 23-64, $69 for young adults ages 13-22, $25 for children ages 5-12 and $49 for seniors ages 65-69 — children 4 and younger are free.
