With five terrain parks, one of the world's best Superpipes (according to the discerning editors of Transworld Snowboarding Magazine) and seemingly endless glades, Sierra-at-Tahoe is a playground for experienced snowboarders.
But before you can shred the gnar (that's powder in 'boarder speak) burying Huckleberry Canyon or master the table tops punctuating the terrain parks, you need to learn the basics.
Fortunately, Sierra-at-Tahoe starts its snowboarders early. Kids under six will love the Burton Star Wars Experience, a learning park that puts a galaxy far far away right here in Tahoe, on snow! Filled with learning-specific features and wood-carved characters like R2-D2, C-3PO and Chewbacca, this singular on-mountain experience combines engaging Star Wars visuals with Burton's industry-leading technology. Snowboard School Instructors lead groups of Younglings (ages three and four) and Padawans (ages five and six) through games, drills and clinics as they embark on their quest to become Jedi-level shredders.
