Home to the first chairlift in California and the first gondola in the country, Sugar Bowl is the grand dame of Tahoe resorts. Known for its rich history and deep powder you’ll find 1,500 acres of challenging terrain, four picturesque mountain peaks serviced by thirteen lifts, including, three high speed detachable quads and three day lodges with spectacular sun decks. Enjoy wonderful indoor/outdoor dining, awesome views of the jutting mountain peaks and fun barbecues on the deck.
As always at Sugar Bowl, you can count on the alpine charm of the facilities, the friendly character of the staff, and the deep storms of the finest powder in the Sierra
Sugar Bowl has always been a place where families can spend quality time together. And the recent Mt. Judah expansion has made it even easier for families to access the “Bowl,” as well as adding great intermediate terrain for everyone. The new road into the base area, matched with the classic Mountain Lodge at Mt. Judah, has pushed Sugar Bowl to the forefront as one of the most desirable resorts for families to visit
CLOSER IS BETTER… You don’t have to go far for some of the choicest skiing and boarding in the Sierras. Sugar Bowl is right off Interstate 80, on the west side of Donner Summit. So while others face an extra hour of bumper-to-bumper grind to those less convenient Tahoe resorts, you can be flying up and down our slopes. For family traveling, anyone with kids knows that more time on the slopes and less time in the car, is the ideal way to spend a family vacation
THERE’S PLENTY OF MOUNTAIN TO GO AROUND… There’s something for everybody. From experts to beginners. Skiers to boarders. Adults to kids. Imagine serious steeps, groomed cruisers, tree-dotted glades, wide-open bowls, a sweet terrain park and pipe, and a fun new beginner area. The variety of terrain is unlike any mountain you can find this close to home.
