Sierra at Tahoe


This family-friendly ski resort offers over 2,200 feet of vertical drop and a mountain full of "steep and deep." Whether you’re a beginner looking for smooth, groomed runs or a rider looking for powder and trees to explore, Sierra has just what you want. An average snowfall of 480 inches per year and north-facing slopes keep the snow in good condition so skiers and riders can access great snow days well after a storm.

The resort programs are designed to be engaging for the whole family, and include adult ski and ride school, daycare or lessons for the kids, racing teams, and deals on private lessons for individuals or groups. Bring the whole family for a fun vacation including their adventure zones featuring terrain elements designed just for the kids.

When you’re ready to come down from the mountain you’ll find plenty of great restaurants to satisfy your appetite. There are many dining options to choose from, so you can relax with some comfort food at a cozy pub, savor the decadent cuisine at an upscale bistro, or indulge in a wine tasting that features flavors from local wineries each month. Every weekend, you’ll find live music at the Sierra Pub.
