Sierra-At-Tahoe Releases Trail Maps Detailing Wildfire Recovery Efforts

By

Since the Caldor Fire that happened last August, Sierra-At-Tahoe in California has been very transparent about the challenges they have faced since portions of the mountain were severely burnt. They were able to open a few lifts for a weekend last April, but most of the mountain still needed a lot of restoration to reopen it. This summer, the work has been about removing burnt trees to get every one of their forty-six trails open for the 2022-23 season.

In a blog post from yesterday, Sierra-At-Tahoe described how the restoration process is going by showing maps from the El Dorado Resource Conservation District. The green areas are the parts of the mountain that have been completed, while the blue shaded areas are the terrain pods where the restoration is still in progress.

They have completed the West Bowl work, and are beginning work on the eastern side of the mountain. The east side of Sierra-At-Tahoe saw little damage though, so the work should be completed relatively quicker than the effort over in the West Bowl. They will be continuing to be updating their maps every couple of weeks as they get ready to fully reopen this winter.

 

These West Bowl trails have been remedied and completed so far.
