No surprise, Sierra-at-Tahoe has been very busy since last ski season. For starters, they've put $5 million into a new base area. It's about 9,000 square feet of comfort, with a new retail area.

A long time ago, when dinosaurs still roamed the forests, Sierra existed as a family run resort, Sierra Ski Ranch. It has grown and gotten better, and all the snow sports enthusiasts who enjoy skiing and boarding at Sierra-at-Tahoe continue to reap the benefits of an evolving world class ski resort, right in our back yard.

Another chunk of good news right now is that a day at Sierra for adults is $40, $20 for children. That won't last long. With the conditions as good as they are right now, a day skiing is quite a bargain.

A short drive, uber delicious conditions and food, and bragging rights for scoring a great lift ticket. Time to ski.
