Sierra-at-Tahoe Details Damage Done by Caldor Fire

On the night of August 29, the Caldor Fire picked up steam in the Sierra Nevada and moved into beloved ski park Sierra-at-Tahoe. Fans of the mountain watched on a working webcam as the fire moved through the ski lifts and across the runs we hold dear. As the flames have quieted and fire containment has grown near South Lake Tahoe, many have been left to wonder the true damage done to the ski resort.

According to Sierra-at-Tahoe officials, the fire caused significant tree damage throughout the mountain. There was also a single maintenance shop with equipment inside that was destroyed by the fire, as well as “a surface lift used by beginner skiers.”

The good news? Sierra-at-Tahoe management remains dedicated to opening for the mountains 75th season. Here is the full statement from Sierra-at-Tahoe:

On behalf of the entire Sierra-at-Tahoe team, we wanted to share with you what we currently know about the damage caused by the Caldor Fire at Sierra. We also want to assure you that while some things will look different, we are doing everything in our power to open, operate, and welcome you back for Sierra’s 75th season.

As has been reported, we can confirm that most of the resort’s structures remain intact. The fire did, however, destroy one of our maintenance shops and the equipment inside, a surface lift used by beginner skiers, and caused significant tree damage that is visible along the access road into the resort and in various areas around the mountain.

Currently, Hwy 50 remains closed and fire crews and personnel are still on-site monitoring hot spots. We are already engaging experts and working closely with the USFS and other partners who are prepared to move quickly to complete a full inspection and assessment of the damage across the entire resort and help us with a plan to move forward. This includes a full evaluation of all of our lifts, buildings, power, and other infrastructure.

As the assessments get underway, we anticipate having more information to share in the next 30 days. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Safety is our number one priority, and we look forward to welcoming our guests and all of our employees back to Sierra this season.
