Important Resort Operation Update


This winter at Sugar Bowl, all lift tickets must be purchased online at least one day in advance. We currently do not have rental equipment available (except if you have pre-booked a lesson package), so you will need to bring your own equipment with you to the mountain.

We are not alone in dealing with the current challenges involving a nationwide labor shortage and COVID impacts. While some of our facilities and services may be closed, we are focusing on offering seven-day/week lift service, maximizing open terrain, and providing a memorable experience.

Tuesday Morning Update: Walking up to the mountain this morning my foot steps were crunchy, the moon was glowing overhead, and the snow was sparkling. Overnight, widespread frost settled on the mountain. Morning runs will be fast and crisp. If you’re looking for something a little softer to start the day, check out runs that were groomed 2nd shift. You can find those runs below in the grooming report. Otherwise, it will be another sunny day with calm winds. Enjoy!

As a reminder, all lift tickets must be purchased online at least one day in advance. We currently do not have rental equipment available (except if you have pre-booked a lesson package), so you will need to bring your own equipment with you to the mountain. Also, remember that California has re-instituted an indoor face coverings mandate. You don't need to wear a mask outside this winter at Sugar Bowl, but you do need to wear it inside whenever you're not actively eating or drinking.
