Report from Friday, January 22nd, 2016
Our usual North Lake Tahoe ski areas were crippled by wind on Friday, so we went and looked for some alternatives. Sugar Bowl Resort did not disappoint with pretty much all lifts running (with the exception of Summit). While the snow off piste was quite heavy and punchy, all of the groomed runs were getting covered in the fresh, soft snow and were really fun to ski on. Some of the ‘groomed’ runs felt like actual pow turns. Also, some of the off-piste skiing at the top of Lincoln and Disney chairs were nice and powdery. Lower down, it was full on Sierra Cement that really helped with the definition in my legs. Can’t wait for bikini season.
