Sierra-at-Tahoe, California

Locals love Sierra-at-Tahoe, which is always a good sign. The resort’s laid-back atmosphere inspires much of this affection, with convivial, family-friendly slopes and a hearty variety of on- and off-mountain activities.  In addition to the expect arsenal of beginner-level classes and a full quarter of their 46 runs rated at green, the resort also boasts a half-day Star Wars-themed Burton training park to help the little ones get into snowboarding.  These intro-level amenities are nicely complimented by some of the best terrain parks in the region, including a superpipe and a fixed Ski/Snowboard X course–which is why Sierra-at-Tahoe also attracts legions of freeskiers and riders from both the professional circuit as well as legions of loyal Tahoe residents.
