5. Sierra-at-Tahoe, California
Peak Features: February
With tons of features, Sierra-at-Tahoe will keep your head spinning long after you land your trick. As Jamie Anderson says, “Just come have a good time!” She recommends warming up in the Alley, which has the mountain’s best jib line, and when it’s time for some kickers, drop into Bashful. Sierra-at-Tahoe has also gained a strong following due to the consistency of its pipe. For those young ones in training, last season the mountain unveiled the Burton Star Wars Experience at Yoda’s Riglet Park. The mini-park and training center is geared toward shreds ages six and under and features custom-wood carvings of R2-D2, C-3PO, and Chewbacca. But don’t worry—there are plenty of down-flat-downs, wallrides, and boxes for the big kids.
