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 course combines a variety of techniques for dynamic skiing, including secret weapons for challenging ungroomed snow conditions and special techniques for the super steep including the infamous pedal-hop turn. With its access to backcountry off-piste conditions, Sugar Bowl Ski Resort provides the ideal setting for this course. Skiers need to be comfortable on black-diamond terrain.
