Sierra-at-Tahoe, which is yet to open this season due to forest fire damage, will open for one weekend and one weekend only to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the resorts operations. On April 9th and April 10th, three lifts will run: Rock Garden, Easy Rider Express, and Slider Carpet. Lift tickets for the event go on sale March 16th and will cost $60 for adults and young adults and $50 for children and seniors.
The weekend will consist of live music, giveaways, competitions, and more, with Subaru WinterFest taking place on Saturday and METHODOLOGY on Sunday. Some retail will be available through Sierra Mt. Sports, and different restaurants and pop-up bars will be featured through the village.
Unfortunately, ski and snowboard rentals will be unavailable, as will ski & snowboard maintenance. The resort is shooting to fully open for the 2022-23 ski season, though this weekend will no doubt be a nice welcome home for Sierra-at-Tahoe natives.
About six months ago, Sierra-at-Tahoe was severely damaged by the Caldor Fire. Five chairlifts were destroyed, a maintenance building completely burnt down, and coils required replacement. Snow guns were used in an attempt to protect infrastructure from being damaged, but was ultimately unsuccessful. The effort to rebuild has been difficult for the resort as well, as shipping delays, government funding, and daylight hours through the winter have complicated the task.
