Sugar Bowl

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

No other ski hill for 28 miles has a more sky-scraping height difference. This ski hill gets blanketed by more than average snow each season. The 1,500 feet of height difference is quite acceptable; Sugar Bowl makes great use of it. All of the 13 good ski lifts are competently looked after and controlled by friendly folks. This ski mountain has an average percentage
    of difficult ski runs and an average share of green and blue runs. The snow here becomes exceptionally deep, 42 feet per year, and that is one of the reasons this is such a great ski hill. The best piece of information on this resort
is of course the ski map of Sugar Bowl on this net page. Sugar Bowl has scores of different runs and an ok pick of ski lifts. Having a total of 85 runs to ski on; it's a splendid collection. Sugar Bowl is a standard size ski area in possession of a vertical drop that's in the region of average when compared to other west coast ski hills. The wonderful beauty of the California mountaintops and the rush of gliding down a slope are in themselves cause enough  
to come here to ski. Nothing outdoes the California summits in wintertime; they are a great place for snowboarding and skiing. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, there are a lot of splendid spots for that close at hand. This ski mountain has a perfect choice of runs to suit all abilities; it's out of the question to get bored here. With the skiing territory being 1,500 acres running out of skiable area wonít happen. The Northern Sierra Nevada blanketed in white snow is a sheer snowboarding and skiing paradise. The skiing and the snowboarding in this region is a lot of fun every day of the ski season. A little bit of exercise and getting out of the house for a while are splendid incentives to come. The Northern Sierra Nevada and its summits make for a great view. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far away from the bottom of the hill if you want to spend a night, but if you donít have reservations, you could end up slumbering in your vehicle.
