Drones and Radio Controlled Aircraft Policy

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.
