Red Ski at Morning Sailors take Warning - Skiers Rejoice! - Click to Zoom

Sierra-at-Tahoe, home to some of the finest tree skiing at Lake Tahoe, has recently opened five backcountry access gates. The gates, accessed from the top of Grandview chairlift, open the resort up to adventurous backcountry skiing and snowboarding.

"Some of the chutes and terrain rivals the steepest terrain around Lake Tahoe," comments Sierra-at-Tahoe's Patrol Director, Robert Schultz. Not only does the terrain provide more advanced skiing and snowboarding, but also offers the remoteness and serenity easily appreciated in the Sierra Nevada.

Long known as the best place on the mountain to ski, the West Bowl now offers more enticing reasons to spend the day here. The West Bowl Smokehouse BBQ offers the best mesquite tri-tip and ribs this side of Texas. The Cocktail waitresses in Chaps, a full bar that Doc Holiday would be proud of, and the smell of hickory in the air - it may seem like the OK Corral but between the beach chairs and the hot reggae tunes, the style is definitely Californian.

Introducing the all NEW Burton Progression Park with boxes, jumps and rails all located inches from the ground, perfect for those wanting to test gravity one inch at a time. And with our Burton Learn-to-Ride programs, you'll be jibbing and hucking in no time.

The South Shore Complimentary Shuttle is available daily, servicing more than 40 casinos and lodging properties in South lake Tahoe, providing a comfortable and convenient alternative to driving. For more information, please call the Shuttle Bus Information at (530) 541-7548.
