The Sugar Bowl Experience

While popular for big mountain skiing and snowboarding as well as its quaint snowbound Village during winter months, Sugar Bowl Resort blooms into an elevated mountain wedding location come spring and summer, carrying over its same guest-centric hospitality. Guests will love the abundance of idyllic Tahoe summer activities including hiking, trail running, mountain biking, paddle boarding, kayaking and so much more. You will love the photogenic vistas of Donner Lake, the Tahoe basin, alpine meadows, and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get whisked away in a “just married” chair lift.
