However, if that doesn’t happen, Sierra Resort is ready to celebrate by offering $22 lift tickets online through Liftopia, the Last Tap beer tasting, live music, food and beverage specials, Mayan hot chocolate, plus holiday festivities to follow.
On Dec. 21, local micro-brews will go head-to-head and put their best brew forward to snag the last vacant tap at the Sierra Resort Pub.
If the Mayans are wrong, the winning brew will be featured on tap throughout January for all to enjoy. The Last Tap Brew Off is free for those 21 and over, who have purchased a Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort lift ticket or season pass valid that day. DJ Mo Funk will provide live music for the event.
Sierra Resort is proud to offer guests an unbeatable online special to celebrate Saturday, Dec. 22 with the “Mayans Missed It” $22 lift ticket.
While the world was supposed to end on Dec. 21, Sierra Resort wants to celebrate by offering guests the chance to slide on snow and celebrate staying alive.
Also, on Dec. 22 Sierra Resort will offer live music by the horn quintet, Bear Bones, at the base of the mountain and Mayan hot chocolate.
Along with the “Mayans Missed It” celebration, holiday festivities will begin and go throughout the weekend. The holiday festivities will include games and activities, like snowman building contests, candy cane limbo, iceberg bean bag toss, and a “Frosty” doughnut eating contest.
With 480 inches of average annual snowfall, wind-protected slopes, incredible tree skiing, and 320 acres of backcountry terrain out the Huckleberry Gates, Sierra Resort is a bastion of the authentic California ski experience.
