18/19 OPERATING PLAN
Sugar Bowl Resort season passholder information.

What to expect in 2018/2019 at Sugar Bowl.

Sugar Bowl, at its sole discretion, will determine the length of the winter season and the operating schedule. Sugar Bowl starts and ends each season based out of the Village portal. Services/facilities ramp-up in the fall/early winter and ramp-down in the late winter/spring as snow conditions and business levels expand and contract. Monday-Friday during the regular season the Village portal is the main resort hub, providing all resort services, with limited lodge, lift and resort services available at the Judah Lodge portal. Saturday-Sunday during the regular season and daily during holiday periods, all services/facilities are available at both the Village and Judah Lodge portals.
100-Day Guarantee
Sugar Bowl passholder guarantee for skiing and riding.

Passholders who purchased by May 31, 2018 are eligible.

2018/19 Sugar Bowl season pass holders who purchased by May 31, 2018 qualify for the new 100-Day Guarantee. Sugar Bowl will offer lift-served skiing and riding for a minimum of 100 days next season, however, if we fall short of 100 days, each day under 100 we operate will be applied as a 1% credit toward the purchase of a 2019/20 season pass (purchase must be made by May 31, 2019 and pass holders who use their pass 5 or more days are not eligible).

So, if Sugar Bowl only operates 85 days in 2018/19, a 15% discount will be applied to the pass holder’s purchase of a 2019/20 season pass, so long as they purchase by May 31, 2019 and they did not visit 5 or more days in 2018/19.

On the third or subsequent occurrence, the passholder will be required to purchase a window-rate lift ticket to access the lifts.
  • Credit toward the purchase of next year’s pass may be issued when injury restricts skiing for the remainder of the season.  In such cases a credit will be issued only after we receive an original medical note signed by a physician, stating the expected length of recovery from the injury, and the Pass is deactivated for the remainder of the season. The amount of credit will be pro-rated based upon the date of notice of injury and/or days used on the pass, less an administrative fee. All lift access and benefits are suspended for the remainder of the season once the pass credit is executed. Injury credits may only be carried over to the following season and be applied to the injured person’s pass purchase.
