Sugar Bowl ski resort is Lake Tahoe is adding more value for is season passholders with access to the Power Alliance for the 2018-19 season.
Starting next winter, Sugar Bowl Unrestricted season passholders for skiing and snowboarding will have access to the Powder Alliance, giving them three days at each participating resort where midweek tickets are free and weekend tickets are half-priced, excluding holiday periods.
Now spanning four countries and two hemispheres, the Powder Alliance is one of the world’s most powerful reciprocal season pass programs offering regional passholders up to three free days at 18 premier winter destinations in addition to the resort they purchased an unrestricted pass at. Some restrictions apply.*
Powder Alliance Resorts include Angel Fire, NM, Arizona Snowbowl, AZ, Bogus Basin, ID, Bridger Bowl, MT, Castle Mountain Resort, AB Canada, China Peak, CA, Kiroro, Japan, La Parva, Chile, Loveland Ski Area, CO, Ski Marmot Basin, Canada, Mountain High, CA, Mt Hood Ski Bowl, OR, Schweitzer, ID, Sierra At Tahoe, CA, Silver Star, Canada, Stevens Pass, WA, Sugar Bowl Resort, CA, Timberline, OR, and Whitewater, Canada.
This announcement comes on the heels of the resort’s recent announcement that Sugar Bowl will offer a 100-day guarantee to those who purchase a 2018-19 season pass, offer free skiing and riding for the remainder of this season (which concludes April 15), and freeze pass prices at the same early season rates offered last March.
The 100-day guarantee means that Sugar Bowl Resort will operate for skiing and snowboarding at least 100 days during the 2018-19 winter season or credit will be offered to passholders to use toward their 2019-20 season pass purchase for the number of days under 100 that the resort is not open.
“With our unrestricted season passes starting at just $479, the addition of our participation in the Powder Alliance makes this pass even more valuable, particularly with the access it provides to nearby resorts like Sierra-at-Tahoe and China Peak,” said Dave Rathbun, chief marketing officer of Sugar Bowl Resort. “Skiers and snowboarders will have access to the incredible terrain and snow conditions that Sugar Bowl is known for, and a new opportunity that provides variety and flexibility in planning destination ski vacations to other participating resorts that also offer high quality ski and snowboard experiences.”
Located on Donner Summit, Sugar Bowl offers access to skiing and riding on four distinct peaks, and some of the deepest snow in the region. Its sister resort, Royal Gorge Cross Country, features the largest cross country trail network in the country.
The resort has made significant investments in the guest experience over the past several years, exceeding $6 million in spending in the last two years alone on snow grooming improvements and snow removal technology, a new kids ski and snowboard school facility, renovations to Nob Hill Cafe, improvements to the Royal Gorge cross-country experience and more.
