Sugar Bowl ski resort got the most snow from our recent storms with a 7 day total of 47″ of new snow. Sugar Bowl averages 500 inches of snow per year, so just this past week gave them 10% of their average annual snowfall. Not bad.
Sugar Bowl was skiing great today. We headed out into the newly opened terrain beneath the new Crow’s Peak Chair and found 2-foot deep, blower powder on everything.
The powder is holding up very well at Sugar Bowl and it’s going to be added to tomorrow. NOAA is forecasting 3-6 more inches of snow for Sugar Bowl tomorrow.
Sugar Bowl is a different world compared to what you’re used to in Tahoe. At Sugar Bowl, there are no lift lines, few people, lots of terrain, and the most snow in Tahoe. That’s a good combination. Sugar Bowl also has the gnarliest in-bounds terrain in Tahoe: The Palisades.
There were only two tracks coming down from the summit of Mt. Judah today and it looked very deep up there.
Tomorrow, Sugar Bowl will open the Crow’s Peak Chair (access to copious amounts of untracked terrrain) and the Judah Express. On Saturday, they’ll be opening the Summit Chair (access to the fresh snow up on Judah). It’s gonna be a good weekend at Sugar Bowl.
Happy Hanukah & Merry Christmas!
