Perched atop Donner Summit, Sugar Bowl Resort has been family owned since the beginning in 1939. While visiting Sugar Bowl much of the historic charm is still maintained within the modern resort. Touches of Austrian character and Bavarian styling provide a glimpse into Hannes Schroll’s and other founders’ vision for this unique mountain.
One of the oldest ski resorts in California, Sugar Bowl has a storied past with ties to Austrian ski culture, Hollywood, and Walt Disney. This special place helped bring skiing to “sunny California,” which was home to the state’s first chairlift, and the west’s first ski gondola. Today, Sugar Bowl continues to attract adventurous winter sports enthusiasts who are drawn to the authentic, community-based experience only offered here.
