Sugar Bowl is the real deal. The runs are challenging and there is enough variety to keep you busy all day. Everyone from a beginner to expert can have alot of fun here. Most of all, the staff is VERY inviting. Hats off to Sugar Bowl management for focusing on customer service.
Now if you're looking for a "resort," experience then go to Squaw Valley, but you would definitely pay more and have more crowds. If you just want to ski great runs, have little to no waiting, plus enjoy the shortest drive of any ski resort from Sacramento or the Bay Area, then this is it. Plus I did notice MANY instructors and small kids. Seems like their ski school is top notch.
In brief, I would highly recommend Sugar Bowl.
