Uphill use of the resort and its surrounding areas by means of skinning, snowshoeing, hiking, and running have gained popularity at Sugar Bowl. Skiers and riders must review, agree to and sign the Uphill Use Policy before traveling uphill at Sugar Bowl Resort, and abide by the rules and regulations established by Sugar Bowl and USFS when accessing the resort both during and after operating hours.

Sugar Bowl is proud to now operate Royal Gorge Cross Country, North America's largest XC resort,
boasting eight distinct trail systems and featuring nine different warming huts across 6,000 acres 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.
