SB Ski Resort Information

Do you want to know which slope to go to?  Which one to avoid?  Which “secret” runs are the patrollers’ favorites?  Go no further!

Q: Where’s the Sugar Bowl resort web page?
A: Visit

Q: How can I get convenient updates on Old Highway 40 closures, shuttle days, etc…?
A: Simply Text “Old40” to 44144   or call (530) 426-1111 for the snow phone  or call (530) 426-6744 for the employee hotline

Q: What are the boundaries and why should I avoid crossing them?
A: When you go past the big yellow boundary signs, you assume all risks. The Sugar Bowl Ski Patrol does not conduct any avalanche control or even patrol this territory. Also, you should be aware that, once you go toward out of bounds area, you will not encounter any chairlifts or other exits such as roads or other ski resorts. The only exit is through Sugar Bowl. If you don’t go back to a groomed slope on time, the only way out will be for you to climb back up.

Q: Is there any risk of avalanche out of bounds?
A: The Sugar Bowl Ski Patrol does not conduct any avalanche control out of bounds and does not comment about the risk associated with skiing in these terrains. A good resource is the Sierra Avalanche Center to obtain that information. You can either visit their web page or call them at (530) 587-3558.

Q: I did not find the answer to the question I had
A: Send us an email at! We will make sure to answer you promptly, and maybe add your question to this page.

    With more than 100 lifts, 500 runs and 17,000 skiable acres, few places on earth can compete with the overwhelming skiing and snowboarding experiences at Lake Tahoe. Indeed, Lake Tahoe boasts the greatest concentration of ski areas in North America. For serious winter enthusiasts, the dilemma isn’t whether or not to make a trip to Lake Tahoe – it’s where to ski or board once they get there!..
