It feels like fall today in Lake Tahoe.
The weather is definitely changing. Earlier this week, the folks at Sugar Bowl ski resort reported
that morning temperatures were just above freezing. And forecasters are actually calling for a dusting of white above 8,000 feet this weekend!
The weather report is promising and people in the ski business in the Lake Tahoe area are optimistic the snow will arrive early this winter for skiers and riders.
Speaking of skiing and snowboarding, Sugar Bowl is offering season passes starting at just $299. For folks who like downhill and cross-country skiing, the Sugar Bowl-Royal Gorge Combo Pass starts at just $449. Royal Gorge, which resides just next door to Sugar Bowl, is North America’s largest XC resort.
The Sugar Bowl-Royal Gorge season pass provides access to typically the most snow in Tahoe. Sugar Bowl will add the new Crow’s Peak Chair this season, Passholders will receive 50 percent off rentals and lessons, get free tickets to Grand Targhee when booking lodging, and earn points-based perks and freebies with the CORE – including 10,000 bonus CORE Points when you refer a new passholder.
Sugar Bowl features varied terrain, often times minimal crowds, and is the closes resort off Interstate 80 for Bay Area and Sacramento skiers and riders.
One more reason to like Sugar Bowl: Daron Rahlves. The four-time Olympian spent 15 years on the U.S. Ski Team, earning honors as the most decorated male Downhill and Super-G racer in U.S. history.
Rahlves has traveled the world on skis, but proudly calls Sugar Bowl home. As Sugar Bowl’s Resort Ambassador, Rahlves can be seen ripping lines on the Palisades to mentoring Ski Team kids in the race arena.
