Sugar Bowl Snowboard Team
Developing Snowboard Athletes In the Mountains and Beyond.

To provide an exciting, fun and safe learning environment within Sugar Bowl's pristine alpine setting. We strive to offer the best coaching and snowboard progression opportunity in the Tahoe region with both competitive and development programs. The Snowboard team works collaboratively with all departments at Sugar Bowl including the Mountain Sports Learning Center to offer the best all mountain experience for members and families.

The Sugar Bowl Snowboard Team members and families pledge to act with courtesy, dignity and good sportsmanship at all team events and functions. Team members acknowledge that they are ambassadors for both the Team and Sugar Bowl resort. Members acknowledge and enforce the Sugar Bowl Snowboard Team Code of Conduct.

The Sugar Bowl Snowboard Team is a freestyle/freeride team that focuses on all mountain, park & pipe and racing. The program has two membership levels to accommodate those riders with a competitive edge that want to participate in USASA competitions and for those riders whose focus is more progression based. Both groups practice together at Sugar Bowl and members are encouraged to explore the competition aspect of Snowboarding.
