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.
We strive to deliver a safe and enjoyable resort experience, and we appreciation your attention and cooperation!
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.
Ross was born and raised in Michigan. He was fortunate enough to have cool parents who got him started on skis at the age of three. He saw a strange thing at his local skate shop when he was ten. They called it a "snowboard." He never looked back!
Ross is a World Cup boardercross athlete. Notable finishes include 3rd at the 2014 USASA National Championships and 12th at the US Snowboarding Grand Prix. He also placed 5th at the 2012 Arctic Man Challenge, hitting 74 mph during the race. Ross moved to California in search of more opportunity and has started a successful photo booth company.

When Ross isn't riding, he enjoys surfing and climbing. His goal is to remain healthy while continuing to compete and travel the world.
