Sugar Bowl Resort continues to deliver authentic alpine adventure with an incredible line-up programs and amenities to make your skiing and snowboarding experience unforgettable. Sugar Bowl was awarded “Best Guest Service Program” for resorts our size in 2009/2010 by the National Ski Areas Association, so you know you’ll be in good hands throughout your resort experience. The Backcountry Adventure Center, operated by Alpine Skills International and located in the Village Chalet building (by the Disney lift), offers professionally guided back and sidecountry tours, educational programs on the science and safety of snow, a full fleet of backcountry rental and retail gear, and current snowpack safety conditions from the Sierra Avalanche Center. Visit sugarbowl.com/backcountry for more information. The Daily CORE Pass delivers the best value on lift tickets. It costs just $21 to join and gets you $15 off the purchase of the window ticket price every day of the season. You also receive free membership in our CORE Rewards Program. The CORE Rewards Program is a points-based loyalty and reward program that gives skiers and riders points every time the ski or ride and for every qualifying dollar spent, that can then be redeemed for free items across the resort.

Visitor Reviews of Sugar Bowl

R Thompson from United States writes:

The two best areas in Tahoe are Kirkwood and Sugar Bowl (in that order). Snowfall is everything in the Sierra due to the tendency to ice up between storm cycles, and these two areas have it. Kirkwood is higher, deeper and bigger, but Sugar Bowl has a great combination of freeway accessibility and a friendly vibe. The patrol is also not afraid to open steeps and there are plenty there. If you stick to the gate-controlled terrain, you can often find nearly untracked pockets on a powder day at 1pm. For the intermediate, there is a good selection of groomers, but you will get bored with those after a day or so. The best terrain is under and to the right of the Lincoln lift and under and to the left of the Disney lift. With powder there is enough in those two zones to keep you happy all season.
