With nearly one foot of fresh snow on the ground since Wednesday night and the National Weather Service forecast calling for more snow this weekend, Sugar Bowl | Royal Gorge plans to open for the season tomorrow (Friday, November 30) with access to beginner and intermediate terrain from both the Judah and Village base areas, plus groomed and tracked trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Sugar Bowl will be open daily from 9 am to 4 pm offering access to terrain served by the Village Carpet, Christmas Tree Express, Jerome Hill Express, Nob Hill and White Pine lifts. Royal Gorge will offer access to 15k of groomed, tracked trails from Summit Station and 7k from the Sugar Bowl Village.

“We’re excited to welcome skiers and riders back tomorrow, and to be kicking off the season with a powder day,” said Jon Slaughter, director of marketing and sales. “We’ve received 36 inches of snow in the past seven days, and with more snow in the forecast, we anticipate being able to offer more lifts and terrain over the weekend as conditions permit.”

At Sugar Bowl, both the Judah and Village base areas will be open, providing access to both lodges and services including lift tickets, rental equipment, retail, and more. Nob Hill Cafe, the Belt Room Bar, Village Espresso, Judah Cafe, Sierra Vista Bar, and Finish Line will be open. Private lessons will be available through Sugar Bowl’s Ski & Board School out of both base areas. Special opening day discounted lift tickets will be available. After tomorrow, the best way to save on daily lift tickets is to buy online at least two days in advance. For those who prefer to plan ahead, ski or ride for less than $87 per day any three days of the season, including Saturdays, with the Sugar Bowl 3 Pack.

As winter weather continues beyond this weekend, the resort will continue to make the most of its expanded snowmaking system and will open additional terrain as quickly as possible.
