Sierra At Tahoe




The second day of the trip proved to be the biggest powder day of the vacation. Sierra At Tahoe received 36 inches the night before we pulled into the parking lot! High winds caused many of the area resorts to shut down or limit lift access again but Sierra At Tahoe is situated differently then most other resorts and gets sheltered from the wind. Chest deep powder runs filled our morning and afternoon. This epic day came close to the one I had at Alta last year, the snow was a bit heavier but still memorable. The runs here were solid, bowl access was limited due to avalanches but the tree skiing is worth the trip. Tons of stashes can be found here days after a major dump.
