Sugar Bowl ski resort in Lake Tahoe, CA will be opening on December 6th, 2014 with 1,500-vertical-feet of skiing for their 75th season. That’s a heck of a lot more than the 500-vertical-feet we’ve been lapping at Squaw all week.
Sugar Bowl will be opening the Mt. Lincoln Express, Christmas Tree, and Nob Hill chairlifts on opening day.
Sugar Bowl got 21″ of new snow out of the latest storm and things are looking good.
