My visit at sugar bowl was so much fun, it's has alot of fun runs where you can smash down with your squad or cut away and find a line that catches your eye. All in all it was a great boarding trip.

Atop Donner Pass, a mere three hour drive from the hustle and bustle of the SF Bay Area sits one of the more conveniently located Tahoe resorts. But convenience isn't all Sugarbowl has to offer. The entirety of the mountain area sits high on the Sierra Crest making for excellent snow conditions that are consistent across the whole mountain. Surgarbowls terrain arrays from the mellowest greens that are perfect for the whole family, to steep, cliff rittled chutes that will challenge the most skilled free-skiers and snowboarders. And lets not forget the off-area access that can be gained from the top of Mt Lincoln giving equipped back country travelers the ability to find fresh tracks in between storms. Sugarbowl may not be the biggest playground in the Tahoe area but what it lacks in in-bound acreage it makes up for by checking all the boxes necessary for a solid day trip. Whether that trip stars in the Bay Area, Reno or just down the pass in Truckee. Don't ya go changin' Sugarbowl.
