Sugar Bowl is proud to now operate Royal Gorge Cross Country, North America's largest XC resort, boasting 200km of groomed trails across 6,000 acres of pristine terrain atop majestic Donner Summit, seamlessly connected with Sugar Bowl Resort and America's only snowbound Village.
A special thanks to all the parties that made this historic acquisition happen, including the Truckee Donner Land Trust, the Trust for Public Land, the Northern Sierra Partnership and all the individuals and families who so graciously donated time, money, effort and resources to help the cause.
AIARE Level 1 LIFT covers the same curriculum as our traditional Level 1. By using the ski lifts, we have quicker access to the higher alpine zone, viewing a variety of avalanche terrain. It's for skiers and snowboarders with lots of lift-served experience wanting to take a new look at better understanding the avalanche phenomena along with sidecountry travel techniques. An AIARE Level 1 Certificate will be awarded upon completion.
