The Sugar Bowl Uphill Travel Policy has been modified this season for the safety of our guests. When open, uphill routes will be available from 7:00am - 7:00pm, with the exception of the Disney uphill route, which closes at 4:00pm. Uphill travel is not permitted on Mt. Disney/Crow's after 4:00pm daily due to snowcat operations, including cat-winching which poses a serious hazard for participants. After 4:00pm, please utilize the approved routes on Mt. Lincoln or Mt. Judah only.

Uphill use of the resort and its surrounding areas by means of skinning 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.

Uphill travel is available to season passholders, Uphill passholders and those who purchase an uphill day ticket. Participants may purchase an Uphill Only season pass online. At that time you will review and complete the Uphill Use Policy. Uphill day tickets must be purchased at the ticket window ,at which time the policy will be signed.

The Sugar Bowl Uphiller: March 2nd
Calling all ski tourers and splitboarders: Join us for the 3rd Annual Sugar Bowl Uphiller this March 2!

Who remembers the infamous Quad Crusher? This new event is a spin-off that still involves uphill travel, but allows participants to choose the amount of vertical climbing they want to do. The goal is to rack up as many human-powered “Lincoln laps” as you can in a day… without the help of a chairlift.
