Sugar Bowl, CA

Perched atop historic Donner Summit, Sugar Bowl Resort has been family-owned and family-friendly since its beginning in 1939. One of the oldest ski resorts in California, Sugar Bowl has a storied past with ties to Austrian ski culture, Hollywood and Walt Disney. With four majestic mountain peaks, 500 inches of snowfall annually, 12 lifts (including 8 quad chairs) and 1,650 acres of lift-served terrain, Sugar Bowl offers 105 trails for all abilities, from steep narrow chutes to wide open bowls and perfectly groomed cruisers, as well as plenty of gentle terrain for beginners and young children. Locally in Lake Tahoe, Sugar Bowl is known for its short lift lines, uncrowded slopes and the most annual snowfall through the adage, “More Snow, Less Crowds.”

Stay in the magical Hotel at Sugar Bowl in the only snowbound Village in America, or discover nearby Truckee, a quaint former ice harvesting, railroad, and timber town located along the Emigrant Trail that now hosts charming shops and superb restaurants set in authentic historic buildings.
