The closest major family resort to the Bay Area and Sacramento, Sierra-at-Tahoe is Lake Tahoe's best-kept secret. The resort's North facing location keeps the snow in great condition for days and with a variety of terrain to choose from the entire family or group of friends can find something to cater toward their ability. Sierra is one of the only resorts that offers beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain all accessible from the summit lift, allowing groups to ride together while still enjoying the runs they want to hit. Five backcountry gates keep expert skiers entertained for hours and give breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe along with quite, uncrowded lines you can't find at other resorts. With new terrain park features, access to backcountry terrain, and new adventure parks for kids, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort has something to offer everyone. Sierra-at-Tahoe is Northern California's home away from home. At this resort, guests are greeted by name and treated like family. Located on Highway 50, Sierra is the closest major snowsports resort to San Francisco and Sacramento, yet it's just a stone's throw away from the glitz of South Lake Tahoe and a multitude of hotel and casino lodging options. Convenience, value and great service are just a few of the words that summarize Sierra. Another asset is the location of its slopes, which are wind-protected and cradle the fresh powder for days. Skiers and riders of all ability levels can easily find their niche here, whether it's exploring the never-ending tree skiing, cruising down a 2.5 mile beginner run from the summit or hucking themselves off a tabletop in one of the many terrain parks and pipes scattered throughout the mountain.
