Sugar Bowl ski resort in California has been around since 1939.  That’s 75 years.

Sugar Bowl has been around so long because the have some amazing things going for them: 

– They get 500″ of snow per year, the most in Tahoe

– Closest ski resort to the Bay Area and Sacramento

– They put in a new, badass chairlift last year that provides 1,000-vertical-feet of solid, fall-line, freeride terrain called the Crow’s Peak triple chair.

– Season passes from $249 for a mid-week, and $589 for a Sugar Bowl + Royal Gorge pass.
