Sierra-at-Tahoe to stay open until April 27

Staff Reports

With the deepest snow and some of the best conditions Sierra-at-Tahoe has seen all season, the resort has opted to stay open through April 27 — one week longer than the closing date orginally planned.

Next week, the resort will offer all-day lift tickets at the afternoon rates of $40 for adults, $33 for young adults and $11 for children. The entire front side of the mountain will be open for the final week with Nob Hill, Grandview Express and Easy Rider Express in operation. There will be two terrain parks open on Upper Main and Broadway as well as the 17-foot Superpipe. Base services and lessons will be available.

On Monday, April 21, Sierra-at-Tahoe will hold its annual Customer Appreciation Day to thank all of its guests. All-day lift tickets for adults, young adults and children will be sold for $10. Proceeds will go to local sports teams and other philanthropic efforts in the community.

After receiving more than four feet of snow last weekend, the resort has a current base depth of seven to 11 feet of powder, machine-groomed and skier-packed powder. For more information, log onto www.
