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.
SAC ski days are SAC's largest fundraising events. Each of the participating ski areas have donated a set number of lift tickets to SAC that are only valid on a specific day. SAC is selling these lift tickets at a discounted price. SAC retains the proceeds from each ticket sale. Fundraising from these events makes up the majority of SAC's annual budget.
Please support the Sierra Avalanche Center by participating in a SAC ski day. In addition to a day at the ski area, you will have a chance to meet the Avalanche Forecasters, ask questions, purchase t-shirts, and win raffle prizes ranging from backcountry gear to technical clothing. Formal avalanche clinics are not a part of SAC ski days, but feel free to ask the forecasters as many questions as you wish. Tickets can be purchased at www.sierraavalanchecenter.org
