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.
This expert's course combines high-performance skiing skills with specific techniques to ski long, committing, high-angle descents. At Sugar Bowl, we practice exercises from dynamic parallel, to steep-terrain hop-turns and then finally, "virage saute pedal", the pedal-hop turn. We'll also refine techniques to enter and maintain controlled steep skiing in narrow chutes and couloirs.
