Season pass restrictions for Slightly & Midweek passholders.

Sugar Bowl will operate daily through April 23.
Time to wax the boards and lather on the sunscreen, Sugar Bowl is operating 7-days per week through April 23. As we get into April we will see how the snow and traffic are holding up and decide how much longer into May we will operate. To keep the action going, we are also introducing a new spring music, barbecue and beverage series on the Village Lodge Deck every Saturday.
What to expect in 2017/2018 at Sugar Bowl.
Sugar Bowl determines its operations schedule, including the start and conclusion of the season, based on factors that include weather and snow conditions, and business levels. Resort operations, including open facilities, guest services and lift operations occur solely out of the Village in the early and late season as snow conditions and business levels fluctuate. Friday-Sunday during the regular season and daily during holiday periods, all services, lifts and facilities are available at both the Village and Judah Lodge areas. Monday-Thursday during the regular season, all services, lifts and facilities will be available in the Village, while the Judah Lodge area will offer limited services and lift operations, including planned non-operation of the Judah and Summit lifts.
