Overview by Elizabeth Zektick

With trails cutting through dense evergreen forests, Sierra at Tahoe evokes images of its sister resort—Northstar—only Sierra has a slightly steeper pitch. The compact base area and no-frills, laid-back atmosphere (as exemplified by its motto, "Just Chill") also make Sierra, like Northstar, a good place to bring the whole family. The base area offers affordable, kid-friendly value meals, and the Parent's Predicament lift ticket allows considerable family flexibility; for the cost of a full-day adult ticket, one parent can ski while the other stays with the child until they’re ready to swap duties. Parents can also opt to leave their brood with Wild Mountain, a licensed daycare facility. But don't let this cast the impression that it's a families-only resort; the four new terrain parks have become quite the draw for area freestyle and daredevil skiers and boarders alike.

The area claims to have 2,000 skiable acres and more than 2,200 vertical feet, but it doesn't ski that big—runs typically top out at around 1,500 vertical. Still, there is more than enough terrain and activities here to keep skiers of all abilities entertained. For the nervous novices, there's a range of snow toys available for rent, from the Snowscoot to the Skifox. Or they can take in the views from the top of Grandview Express before cruising back to the base on the 2.5-mile Sugar n' Spice beginner run. Intermediate skiers and boarders can spend the day carving up the long cruisers in West Bowl, while those who are more advanced can play in the terrain parks or head out through one of five gates into Huckleberry Canyon, which boasts some of the steepest, deepest terrain
