End of Season Email from Ryan Zaczek, Sierra at Tahoe Competition Services Manager
I want to send out a huge thank you to all of the athletes and families who returned to Sierra this past season to participate in our team programs. It took a monumental effort to recover from the Caldor Fire and be able to open our full mountain this season, but thanks to the endless support and encouragement from our Sierra family we were able to return to full operations including all of our teams! We anticipated returning with a somewhat normal season, but Mother Nature had other plans in store. With the near record-breaking snowfall paired with back to back storms there were many days and nights that challenged every member of this community, and I want to celebrate each parent who braved the storm and continue to be dedicated to their athlete’s development and success. You are all a hearty group and because of your perseverance to get your athletes to training we were able to successfully host every scheduled training day for the season! Thank you for your dedication and willingness to make those snowy drives. The progression for every athlete is a testament to the juice being worth the squeeze.
