Two of Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts – Sierra-at-Tahoe, Diamond Peak – report they have plenty of available terrain for the Martin Luther King holiday weekend.

The resort near South Lake Tahoe off Highway 50 is open and offers guests fun mountain activities for all ability levels. Sierra Resort has top to bottom skiing/riding, including 23 open trails and 6 lifts, a terrain park with small to medium features, and snow play.

Current conditions at Sierra-at-Tahoe offer families, beginners, and intermediates a great opportunity to enjoy the sunshine and learn to ski in snowboard in comfortable conditions.

Sierra resides on Echo Summit
Sierra-at-Tahoe ski resort sits on the top of Echo Summit, which traditionally receives the most snow in the Lake Tahoe basin. The mountain is also north facing and allows snow to stay longer and gives guests a great product to ski/ride.

“There is plenty of winter left, and we are extremely proud of the product that we currently have on the mountain. We are scheduled and committed to offer skiing/riding through mid-April,” said Sierra-at-Tahoe General Manager, John Rice.

Guests can also see current conditions every Friday by watching the “Goggles Don’t Lie” online. Skeptics need to ski it to believe it. California sunshine, white snow and fresh air create an environment for memories that will last a lifetime.
