Fire Damaged Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA, to Open For 1 Weekend in April

SnowBrains | | Industry NewsIndustry News

Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA, announced today that they will be opening for one weekend in April having been closed for the season due to damage caused by the Caldor Fire.

As the Caldor Fire tore through Sierra-at-Tahoe, CA, in September, we feared the worst––one of our favorite resorts was being razed to the ground. Thankfully, that didn’t happen, and due to heroic work by firefighters and the use of snowguns to dampen the area, Sierra-at-Tahoe survived. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t any damage. Thousands of trees were torched and buildings and chairlifts burned.

But, with just a month of the season remaining, the resort has announced they will open on April 9-10 to celebrate the resort’s 75th anniversary. For the first time this season, the resort’s slopes will be accessible to the public. Two chairlifts will turn and a bunny hill conveyor.

April 9, 2022 – April 10, 2022 All Day Event

To pay homage to our history while setting our sights on the future, we are OPENING the resort for ONE WEEKEND ONLY on April 9-10 2022, to reflect and reconnect — together with your fellow Sierra family members. Share in the experience of what makes this place so truly unique + special with live music all weekend, competitions, giveaways + so much more. Subaru WinterFest will kick off the weekend celebration on Saturday followed by METHODOLOGY on Sunday to round out the fun. After a year of unforeseen events and unknown obstacles, we are ecstatic to welcome passholders, ticket holders, and all those who love Sierra back to the place Where Play Reigns Free.

We are setting our sights on a full opening next winter, as skiing and riding will be very limited throughout the weekend, but smiles, high fives + good vibes will be in abundance and that is truly what this anniversary event is all about!

With a little luck, sunshine will be on tap with spring conditions + a chance to see the mountain for the first time, so grab your favorite Sierra swag, carpool with your crew and come catch some special celebratory turns with us as we toast to 75 Years of Sierra. We’ll see you there!
