Sierra-at-Tahoe has announced that it plans to full reopen its 46-trail network for the 2022-23 season, the resort posted on its blog on Sept. 13.
The ski resort in Twin Bridges was severely damaged by the August 2021 Caldor Fire, forcing its closure for most of the 2021-22 winter season. The resort opened with limited ticket sales only on April 9 and 10, 2022.
“The West Bowl area was the first focus for remediation as it sustained the largest concentration of damage from the Caldor Fire, while the east side was largely spared from the flames of the fire,” El Dorado RCD reported in the most recent update.
“With goals for West Bowl complete, falling ops have moved to the eastern side of the mountain. We anticipate remediation in this area to move swiftly as early assessments indicate the tree canopy and vegetation has limited to no fire damage across beloved areas such as Huckleberry Canyon. Helicopter operations are planning to arrive at the end of September to assist with hard-to-access areas like those in Jack’s Bowl,” reads the post.
