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 eight distinct trail systems and featuring nine different warming huts across 6,000 acres 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.

Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
People ahead of you have the right of way. It's your responsibility to avoid them.
You must not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
Whenever starting downhill or merging into a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
Always use devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
Observe all posted signs and warnings. Keep off closed trails and out of closed areas.
Prior to using any lift, you must have the knowledge and ability to load, ride and unload safely.
At Sugar Bowl Resort, the use of drones and radio controlled model aircraft, which are currently considered an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS), is a public and guest safety concern, and, where cameras are used, a potential privacy issue. Drones are not allowed to be used by the public at Sugar Bowl Resort, both at the base areas and up on the mountain. The safety and privacy of our guests is our primary concern. Should you have a Drone Policy issue or question, please contact Sugar Bowl's marketing department on (530) 426-6720.
