Sugar Bowl Resort, CA announced on Friday that it plans to extend its winter season one week, with its official closing day now planned for Sunday, April 18. In addition, the resort will resume its season pass sales for the 2021-22 winter season, offering a limited number of passes for purchase beginning Saturday, April 3 at 12:01 a.m. For the final week of the season, non-passholders are also invited to purchase tickets online in advance, with rates starting at $49.

“We could not have been successful this season if it were not for the hard work of our staff plus the understanding and respect shown by our guests. Our community did their part, adhering to the new Covid policies requested of them, including continued mask-wearing even with warm spring conditions. The decision to extend the season by an additional week is our way of showing our deep appreciation and offering our passholders and daily visitors our thanks for their continued support.”

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

Daily lift operations will continue as planned through April 11, with extended week (April 12-18) operations offered from the Village base, accessible by the gondola. Open lifts will include Mt. Disney Express, Nob Hill, Mt. Lincoln Express, and Christmas Tree Express, including access to beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert terrain. Village services will include food and beverages at the Nob Hill Cafe and retail at Village Ski & Sport. Rentals, lessons, tuning, and repair services will not be available during the final week of the season.

With Placer and Nevada Counties now within the “red” tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy guidance, Sugar Bowl’s lodges and cafeterias will reopen at 25% capacity. Indoor dining will be limited to 30-minutes and offered daily at Nob Hill Cafe and Judah Cafe, with Mid-Mountain Cafe operations on weekends only. In addition, through the remainder of the season, mask-wearing, social distancing, and household gathering only will continue to be strictly enforced.

Sugar Bowl prides itself on offering an uncrowded experience. The resort suspended season pass sales for the 2021-22 season following an initial offering available only to renewing passholders. Given the vaccine milestones achieved in California, the resort is now offering another, small allotment of passes for purchase by the public. At midnight tonight, season pass sales will resume, however quantities are limited and passes are anticipated to sell quickly. Royal Gorge, Sugar Bowl’s sister resort, has already sold their maximum allotment of season passes for 2021-22. More information is available at

Season to date, Sugar Bowl has received 286 inches of snow. With base depths of 68 to 118 inches, Sugar Bowl is the perfect place for spring turns. Learn more and purchase lift tickets online in advance at

Update: Sugar Bowl announced Sunday 4th April 2021, that 21/22 season passes are now sold out. The resort may release some for sale in Fall, but until operating procedures and state and county ruled guidelines on capacities are known, cannot say for sure if that will be the case.
