Sugar Bowl Resort to Open for 75th Season
DONNER SUMMIT, Calif. (Dec. 3, 2014) — Sugar Bowl Resort will open for top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding this Saturday, Dec. 6.
A powerful winter storm coated the mountain in up to 21 inches of snow on Tuesday, and another foot of snow is expected through Thursday.
The new snow, complementing Sugar Bowl’s new and improved snowmaking system, will allow Sugar Bowl Resort to open three lifts and top-to-bottom skiing on Mt. Lincoln on Saturday and Sunday. The resort plans to temporarily close from Monday, Dec. 8 to Friday, Dec. 12, re-opening for the season on Dec. 13 with full seven-day-a-week operations.
Sugar Bowl Resort will operate Mt. Lincoln Express, Christmas Tree and Nob Hill chairlifts, giving skiers and snowboarders access to beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain on 1,500 vertical feet.
All season passholders can ski opening weekend at Sugar Bowl Resort. No blackout dates are in effect. All access to Sugar Bowl Resort will be through the Village Gondola, which will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Lift tickets for Dec. 6 and 7 will be set at $72 for adults, $42 for children and super seniors and $60 for youth and seniors. Skiers and snowboarders can receive $15 off of these prices, and ticket discounts throughout the entire season, by purchasing a CORE Daily Pass for $21.
Beginning ski and snowboard lessons and private lessons will be available and equipment rentals, retail and food and beverage will be open.
Uphill access to Sugar Bowl Resort is currently closed, but will open for uphill passholders on Saturday. Royal Gorge Cross Country is not currently open for the season. An opening date for the cross-country resort will be announced soon.
