Apres Ski in Sierra at Tahoe

Sierra Resort

There is no real village atmosphere at Sierra.

The Base Lodge has restaurants and a daycare center, but for accommodations and après ski you have to go to South Lake Tahoe or one of the other towns around Lake Tahoe.

Sierra Bars & Restaurants

The Sierra pub is your only option for immediate apres ski.

It has live music, food and drinks specials. In South Lake Tahoe there are around 90 restaurants, bars and, of course, casino nightlife in the main casinos, where there’s usually a show or cabaret being performed, not to mention the slots. The restaurant choices in the town cover coffee shops through Chinese, Italian, Mexican, to sandwich shops. For further information on bars and restaurants, visit South Lake Tahoe’s website, www.southlaketahoe.com.

Sierra Other Activities

Tubing, snowshoeing, and snowtoys are all fun alternatives to skiing and snowboarding.

Tubing at Sierra is probably one of the highest thrill activities available. The lanes cover 425 feet (127 m) of high-banked turns and rollers, and a slick, quick surface. Tubing lanes are open daily, weather and conditions permitting. The cost is US$15 per person for two hours, which includes tube rental and access to the rope tow that carries the tube and its rider to the top of the hill.

Did you know that snowshoeing is recognized among fitness experts as one of the most effective cardiovascular activities, burning off a hefty 550-750 calories per hour! Sierra maintains three miles (5 km) of scenic, groomed snowshoe trails below the Base Lodge. Interpretive signs lining the trail system explain wildlife and other interesting facts about the Sierra Nevada mountains. Snowshoe rentals are available for US$15 per two hours.

For a new twist, hit the slopes on a snowbike or snowscoot. Snowbikes are a high-thrill, low-skill activity. In place of tires are two mini skis that skim the surface of the snow. The rider grabs the handlebars and steers downhill. The snowscoot is a crazy adaptation of the foot-propelled scooter, and accomplished users even pull tricks in the halfpipe and terrain parks.
