TransWorld readers have voted Sierra-at-Tahoe into the Resort Poll Top 10 year after year,” said TransWorld Editor-in-Chief Annie Fast. “Our readers love the parks and powder, and the resort consistently ranks in Top 10 Vibe. You know the vibe is good just by the popularity of the Sierra-at-Tahoe hoodies – their riders are loyal.”
Sierra says it tries to create and maintain innovative freestyle terrain that appeals to an ever-growing demographic of skiers and snowboarders.
