Sugar Bowl

  This is a perfect mountain. I love it here. It is a really good place to ski. Says Kathey.

Having a total of 85 slopes to ski on; there's a good collection to satisfy everyone. This ski resort has a vertical drop of 1,500 feet; Sugar Bowl makes good use of it. Sugar Bowl has a tremendous range of ski runs and sufficient great ski lifts to serve them all. This ski area has an average fraction of demanding ski runs and an average percentage of green
    and blue ski runs. Having the skiable area being 1,500 acres you won't be short of skiable land. The nearest ski area having a more sky-scraping drop is 28 miles away. All of the 13 good ski lifts are admirably taken care of and run
by friendly folks. This is a standard size ski mountain featuring a medium elevation difference if compared to other west coast ski areas. The peaks of the Northern Sierra Nevada give this ski mountain an enormously splendid scenery. Getting your skiing muscles started and getting out of the house for a while will have you returning. The seasonal snowfall is more than average at this ski area. In winter the California peaks are always splendid for skiing and snowboarding.  
Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, in this general vicinity, you'll encounter loads of ski hills. The mind-boggling 42 feet of seasonal snowfall is an extraordinarily nice depth. The trailmap of Sugar Bowl on this web page naturally says a thousand words. The nearby rooms are a bit away from the bottom of the hill, but you'd better reserve in advance of a trip since these rooms fill up swiftly. The snowboarding and the skiing in this part of the country is scores of fun all winter long. The charming beauty of the California peaks and the kick of speeding down a slope have skiers coming from far and near. Sugar Bowl is a great ski mountain with a lot of different ski runs; it's impossible to get bored here. The Northern Sierra Nevada covered in snow is so striking you won’t believe it.
