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.
With a location near Donner Lake and the Truckee River, at the base of the picturesque Sierra Nevada mountains, the hotel’s proximity to some of Northern California’s finest ski resorts makes it the perfect winter destination for enthusiasts of all levels and its closeness to Lake Tahoe draws families looking to soak up everything its pristine waters have to offer during the summer months.
