Poker Run
Saturday, January 22, 2022
Sugar Bowl
Have you ever played poker on snow? Join us for our annual family-friendly Poker Run. You don’t need to know how to play poker, just ski and ride around the resort, visiting at least five of our Poker Chip Stations which are located all over the mountain.

The game is simple:
1. Pre-register on this page
2. At the beginning of the event, check out the Poker Run trail map at Judah Lodge
3. Plan your route to all of the Poker Chip Stations, ski/ride to each zone, and take a selfie to prove you were there.
4. Return back to the lodge within the time limit and you’ll earn a card in your poker hand for each station you visit. We’ll choose your best hand for you, and stack you up against other players to determine who wins! Tons of cash and prizes are up for grabs.

At check-in, you will be given the list of 7 locations to visit and pick-up a card. There will also be 4 jokers hidden around the mountain. There is not set route and this is not a race, just a fun way to explore the mountain.

Cash and prizes will be awarded to the best 3 hands. Grand Prize $1000. Proceeds from the event support the Truckee-Tahoe, Excellence in Education Foundation.

*Lift ticket or valid season pass required.
