Partnership gives season passholders access to 7,650 acres, 55 lifts and more than 370 ski runs in Tahoe, covering some of North America’s most challenging & diverse terrain.
DONNER SUMMIT, Calif. (March 7, 2014) — Sugar Bowl Resort has partnered with Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows to give Sugar Bowl season passholders skiing & riding privileges at Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows for the 2014/15 season.
The partnership opens up access to a total of 7,650 skiable acres, 55 lifts and more than 370 ski runs in Tahoe to season passholders. The new passholder benefit also further complements Sugar Bowl’s current reciprocal skiing privileges with both Sun Valley Resort in Idaho and Grand Targhee in Wyoming.
Sugar Bowl’s Unrestricted Season Passholders will receive four free tickets to Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows next season, which can be used Sunday-Friday on any non-holiday dates. Sugar Bowl’s Slightly Restricted Season Passholders will receive three free tickets, while Midweek Season Passholders will receive two free tickets, all subject to the same restrictions. The partnership represents a new era of independent resorts continuing to offer value-added benefits for their season passholders.
Under the agreement, Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows season passholders will also have access to Sugar Bowl downhill and/or Royal Gorge cross country skiing. Squaw Valley’s Gold Season Passholders will receive four free lift tickets to Sugar Bowl and/or Royal Gorge XC, while Silver Passholders will receive two free tickets. All tickets will be redeemable Sunday-Friday and subject to holiday blackouts*. If tickets are used at Royal Gorge, North America’s largest cross country ski resort, XC ski rental equipment will be included free of charge.
“At Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge we pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional ski & ride experience,” said CEO Rob Kautz, “and this exciting new partnership will now offer our passholders even more, enjoying the legendary terrain of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Likewise, we look forward to showing off our own exceptional snow, terrain and services to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadow’s skiers & riders.”
The partnership adds some 6,000 acres of new skiing for Sugar Bowl season passholders, including some of North America’s most challenging and diverse ski terrain. Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Olympics, operates 29 lifts over more than 3,600 skiable acres and six mountain peaks. Alpine Meadows offers 13 lifts and covers 2,400 skiable acres, including some of Tahoe’s best hike-to terrain.
Sugar Bowl Resort offers exceptional skiing and riding across four mountain peaks, and averages the most annual snowfall in Tahoe at 500 inches per season. And boasting some of the finest backcountry access and terrain in the region, including professionally guided tours, powder enthusiasts enjoy endless options just outside the resort’s boundary. Having just unveiled $20 million in resort improvements this season alone, including a new ski-in/ski-out academy campus, a new fitness and aquatics center, upgrades at Royal Gorge and the new Crow’s Peak chairlift, Sugar Bowl celebrates 75 years of Tahoe skiing and riding next season with a vast array of new amenities and services.
