Looks like Sierra is way worse than I thought. All of the trees between Grandview and preachers passion have been totally cleared already. Preacher's trees are absolutely scorched. And the west bowl, oh fuck the west bowl. There are like 10 living trees left. It's actually going to be a bowl now I guess. You can see they've started to take out the trees. Man. The only surviving areas seem to be from Grandview to Nob hill and maybe the backside. Fire literally took out some of the best tree skiing areas. And looks like they are just going to cut down all of the dead trees so I think we will be seeing a completely different resort when this is all over. I was dreaming of no tree wells skiing through the dead trees but I don't think that will be a reality.
Don't know how many of you rode Sierra but it's low key one of the best resorts in Tahoe. Amazing tree skiing, boundless pow stashes, great parks and an incredible side country area huck canyon. Gets some of the best snow in Tahoe. Super reasonable season pass prices and perks and just an overall awesome fun and friendly mountain.
