Sugar Bowl Employees

The sweetest skiing & boarding in Tahoe!

Known for its rich history and deep powder, you'll find 1,650 acres of fun, challenging terrain. We've poured over $50 million in improvements into our resort over the last few seasons, including the new Crow's Peak chairlift, providing access to tons of advanced/expert terrain. We are also in our third year operating Royal Gorge, North America's largest cross-country resort.

Sugar Bowl offers an incredible high-alpine experience with four picturesque peaks, three progressive terrain parks, the most snow in Tahoe, endless XC trails, incredible backcountry and a magical snowbound village.

With all that Sugar Bowl has to offer, you'll find working here is as much fun as skiing here.

Semi-private rooms: All of these are located 3 miles away at Donner Summit Lodge. These rooms have 2-3 people per room and have a private bath. Rent ranges from $275 - $305/month per person, including all utilities.

For all rooms, you must bring your own linens/pillows/towels. You must also bring a HEAVY comforter with you for your top warmth.
