Sugar Bowl set to open Saturday

A recent winter storm that surprised mountain operators with significantly more snow than originally forecasted has allowed mountain crews to ready the mountain for opening weekend.

Sugar Bowl announced today that they will open the 2012/13 ski season with weekend operations Saturday and Sunday, offering 1,500 vertical feet of top-to-bottom skiing and riding off
the Disney, Nob Hill, Christmas Tree and Lincoln Express chairlifts.

Access to the mountain will be via the Village Gondola, operating 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., with Village-side operations only.

Village food and beverage will be operational, and Village Tickets will be open to accommodate ticketing and pass needs.

Special tickets will also be open on the Mt. Judah side to assist with any season pass purchase and/or fulfillment needs.

Lift tickets will be $80/day.

Current operating plans call for a midweek resort closure Monday through Nov. 21, reopening for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend Nov. 22–25, but stay tuned to the all new for operational updates (including opening plans for Royal Gorge Cross Country Resort, also available on, as snow and weather may mandate updates as needed.
