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 day of Sugar Bowl backcountry sets the goal of combining lift access with climbing skins to produce an enchainment of skiing the backside of all four peaks at Sugar Bowl (Crows Peak, Mt. Disney, Mt. Lincoln and Mt. Judah). It's a bigger, more aggressive day skiing pristine lines and connecting them with skin travel in remote areas that almost feel like they make time stand still in the backcountry. This is an incredible day to enjoy the complete alpine adventure.
