“Sweet at Sugar Bowl”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

We rented skiis in Truckee at Tahoe Dave's and headed up the hill to Sugar Bowl.

We chose Sugar Bowl because locals were saying that on a Sunday they have less crowds, which we appreciate very much.

The skiing was good! The runs are diverse and fun, it seems that they have something for everyone here.

When we stopped for a break I was impressed with the variety and quality of the food choices. Great soup and decent pasta for lunch, as well as some nice beverages from the bar.

The lifties seemed super-nice and into their jobs: I noticed they often commented like "have a good run!", "enjoy your time"... stuff like that. It was nice!

If you need to watch your budget but want to ski in Tahoe, I highly recommend this resort.

“for value and location they are excellent.”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

during gen admission days you get a free lesson and rental equip with your lift ticket. that is a value that cant be beat. man made snow is great on the bigger runs and feels like semi deep powder. icy on beginner runs though but def managable. i would love to come here after a storm. and the drive is the easiest of any resort. two and a half hours from oakland. i love this place.
