SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – November 27, 2019 – Sierra-at-Tahoe is please to announce that it will begin spinning lifts for the 2019-20 Winter Season this Saturday, November 30, at 8:30AM.

After a slow start to November, Mother Nature has turned on the tap, bringing Sierra two feet of snow and counting in the last 48 hours. This, combined with Sierra’s snowmaking efforts, will allow the resort to open for operation this Saturday. Conditions permitting, Sierra plans to run Easy Rider Express, Rock Garden Chair and two surface lifts, with access to 2 runs and one terrain park.

“It truly looks like winter on the mountain right now, and we can’t wait to kick off the season with our Sierra Family this Saturday,” said General Manager, John Rice. “More snow is forecasted to fall throughout the week and into the weekend. Our team will continue to assess conditions to see what terrain we can offer our guests.”

Sierra-at-Tahoe will be offering a fun-filled schedule for opening day, including free coffee from Black Cabin Coffee, a limited edition 2019 Opening Day Sticker and a reusable Sierra-at-Tahoe straw for the first 100 guests in line. This will be followed by a complimentary beer toast led by General Manager, John Rice, at noon. Both Adult and Children’s Ski and Ride School lessons, Day Care and bites and drinks will be available for purchase.
