Why? Sierra has invested $5 million into a new facility located at the base of the mountain, transforming the current skier area into a mecca for gathering and services that improve the overall skier/boarder experience.
The new 9,000 square-foot sprung plaza structure will enhance the overall mountain and après atmosphere and create an energy that makes the plaza the place to be when visiting Sierra this winter.
The plaza will include:
• Retail options
• Indoor and outdoor seating
• Fire pit gathering areas
• Large deck area constructed from pavers
• Venue for live music, events, and other activities
Located in the base area at the bottom of the Broadway trail, the plaza will be the nucleus of all Sierra skier services. With close proximity to Easy Rider, guests will have easy access to the mountain, reinforcing the hassle-free environment Sierra-at-Tahoe is known for.
Included in the building will be a new equipment demo center and new retail shop offering the latest fashions from the ski and snowboard industries’ top brands.
Additionally, a new restaurant – “Solstice” – will showcase healthy, California food, local brews, and additional seating. The building will also include multiple flat screen televisions allowing guests to enjoy live sports and entertainment throughout the winter.
Outside, guests will be treated to an après atmosphere with a California twist. The new 20,000 square-foot deck will give guests a place to kick back, relax, relish the California sun and enjoy fire pits, lounge chairs, table service, and live music; creating a slope-side après paradise.
Other deck amenities will include a viewing area that allows friends and families to scan major trails such as Lower Main, Aspen, the Halfpipe, Broadway and Easy Street. The deck will also provide skiers and snowboarders with “grab-n-go” food options, so they can fuel up and get back on the mountain.
