The Ambassadors of Sugar Bowl have been selected not only for their amazing talents on-snow, but also for embodying the same values Sugar Bowl holds in the highest esteem. If you see them around the mountain take a chairlift ride or slap a high-five; this crew is as authentic as they come.

Daron Rahlves

Daron grew up in Nor Cal doing all kinds of sports. At age 12 his family moved to Tahoe to live in the mountains and ski every day of the winter. Joining Far West Skiing and then attending GMVS, a ski race academy, he was driven and focused on going fast, eventually landing him on the US Ski Team at age 19. His love for speed and finding out what he was made of gravitated him to the speed events of racing Downhill and Super-G with Giant Slalom to keep his skills sharp.

Sugar Bowl Academy alumni Mark Engel has made our community proud, racing alongside the best while attending the University of Utah and qualifying for the US Ski Team. When Mark's not speeding along the slopes, you might find the talented musician playing covers in the Belt Room Bar or on the Judah Sundeck during gorgeous spring days.
