Sugar Bowl


Sugar Bowl Resort has always been a popular winter retreat. However with fairly recent updating and upgrading, the resort is now able to combine the history, ambiance and service of old, with top-notch modern facilities. All this contributes to make the Sugar Bowl Resort a first class resort.

Situated high up on Donner Summit, Sugar Bowl is a play-land of snow just waiting to be enjoyed. With over 500 inches of annual snowfall, 84 spectacular runs and 328 km of cross-country trail, this resort is at the top of its game. It has features for both Alpine Skiing and snowboarding, while freestylers can make full use of the two terrain parks and halfpipe. The Sugar Bowl Resort features a summit elevation of 8383 ft and a 1500 ft vertical drop. Its trails are spread out over an area of 1500 acres and they are serviced by 12 ski lifts of varying shapes and sizes. For those who love hitting the longest run and just skiing to their heart’s content, the longest run is a spectacular 15,840 ft long!

Sugar Bowl Resort is well suited to all ages and levels of experience. 17% of the trails are graded for beginners, 43% are for intermediate skiers, 30% are for advanced skiers and 10% are for experts only. In addition to the trail variety there are a number of ski instructors willing to offer instruction to help improve existing skills or to get beginners on their way down their very first slope. Childcare facilities are available and you can also enjoy a variety of Children’s and women’s programs. If you don’t have all the equipment needed, you can rent what you need at the resort.
