Having received 390 inches of snow so far this season – 154 inches fell in January alone – Sugar Bowl Resort, CA, announced today it will extend its operations through April 23, 2023. The popular resort on Donner Summit plans to be open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. through the end of the season, giving skiers and riders more time to enjoy deep turns and a robust snowpack.

“We’ve seen significant storm after storm this season, and in celebration of the incredible snow conditions, we are extending the season another two weeks so skiers and riders can take full advantage of it. We’re also lining up some awesome spring deals, including the return of our Spring Pass, and will bring back a fan favorite – the Pond Skim on our closing weekend.”

– Jon Slaughter, Sugar Bowl Resort executive director of marketing and sales

Beginning March 1, 2023, Sugar Bowl’s Spring Pass will be on sale for $399 ($99 for children ages 5-12) and valid from March 1 – April 23, 2023. In addition, pass holders at other area resorts can escape to Sugar Bowl’s uncrowded slopes for only $89 per day. Simply show your valid season pass to any other Tahoe resort and purchase a lift ticket valid any day between March 1 and the end of the season.

Spring events are also planned, including The Sugar Bowl Uphiller on April 1, 2023, and the Tiki Pond Skim on April 22, 2023. In the Uphiller, ski tourers, and splitboarders can choose the amount of vertical climbing they want to do, with each lap completed between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. earning participants raffle tickets and a better chance at prizes during the awards ceremony. A pop-up bar, lawn chairs, and a DJ will be posted at the summit of Lincoln, and a bonus raffle ticket will be awarded to those who come in costume. The season-ending party not to be missed, Sugar Bowl’s Tiki Pond Skim will take place between 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on April 22 between the Disney and Nob Hill chairlifts near the Village Lodge base area. Expect live music, a pop-up tiki bar, and a snow beach viewing area to watch the action.
