Sugar Bowl Resort will re-open on Thursday Dec. 6, after a colder-than-expected winter storm blanketed the Donner Summit ski resort with nearly four feet of new snow over the weekend.
 
Sugar Bowl will offer top-to-bottom skiing and riding on four chairlifts — Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Disney, Christmas Tree and Nob Hill — from Thursday through Sunday. Sugar Bowl plans to announce their operation schedule for the week of Dec. 10 later this week.
 
The current forecast calls for even more snow at Sugar Bowl early this week, with clearing skies for Thursday’s re-opening date. A winter storm is forecast to drop a fresh layer of snow lasting through Wednesday evening, setting up skiers for fresh powder skiing on Thursday.
 
“With nearly 10 feet of snowfall at Sugar Bowl so far this season, and more snow on the way this week, we knew that Sugar Bowl skiers and riders were itching to get back on the mountain,” John Monson, director of marketing for Sugar Bowl said in a press release. “By re-opening two days earlier than planned, skiers and riders can take advantage of Sugar Bowl’s deep snow and superb ski conditions from top to bottom.”
 
Access to Sugar Bowl will be through the Village Gondola. Special Tickets at the Judah Lodge will be open for season pass holders to pick up their passes. Food and beverage, lessons and free rentals will all be available through the gondola entrance at the Village base area.
 
Ticket prices will be announced on sugarbowl.com. Check sugarbowl.com for updates on conditions and Sugar Bowl’s upcoming operation schedule.
