Sierra-At-Tahoe Opens

South Lake Tahoe, CA – Sierra-at-Tahoe will open this Friday November 3, 2000. The past weekend storm provided all the right ingredients for an earlier than expected opening at Sierra-at-Tahoe. Sierra-at-Tahoe received 12 inches of snow at the base of the mountain and up to 18 inches at the summit.

“The snow is in great condition”, comments Johnny Morris, Sierra-at-Tahoe’s Grooming Supervisor. “It’s laying down nicely and we have full coverage”, says Morris.
