In the press release, Hemphill said, "Regarded as one of the top magazines in the industry, TransWorld SNOWboarding has been ranking the best resorts in North America for over a decade. In 2014 TransWorld SNOWboarding ranked Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort amongst the best mountains in North America.
The Resort Poll ranks mountains based on mountain features such as parks and halfpipe, terrain, and other areas including vibe, snowfall, lodging, value, and food. Each year TransWorld readers are polled to rank their three favorite resorts based on their overall experience.
The 2014 Resort Poll ranked Sierra Resort™ as the fourth best overall mountain in North America. Sierra Resort not only offers innovative terrain parks, but also a 2,000 acre mountain receiving an average of 480 inches of snowfall annually, giving guests access to a powder paradise and variety of terrain for all abilities. Sierra Resort was also recognized as the eighth best halfpipe in the nation and number one for value!"
This is the fourth year in a row the resort has been ranked among the top ten overall mountains. It is the seventh year out of the past eleven years that Sierra has been recognized in the Resort Poll. It is a result of Sierra's Keepin It Real approach to snow sports.
John Rice, the General Manager at Sierra, had this to say, “Year after year we are privileged to be among the top resorts. Our commitment to quality parks starts with our staff and, in return, benefits our world-class athletes and faithful riders who call Sierra home. It’s an honor that TransWorld’s readers would consider us one of the top resorts in the country. We’re excited to continue our tradition of excellence and give guests an even better mountain experience moving into the 2013-2014 season.”
Sierra's terrain parks are "designed built, and maintained" by Snow Park Technology. SPT is noted as being the leaders in the snow park industry.
Sierra's freestyle terrain welcomes boarders of all ages and abilities. Family friendly aptly describes the parks features.
