School Ski Trip | School Ski Trip to Sugar Bowl, Lake Tahoe (North), USA

Sugar Bowl, North Tahoe in California, has a rich history. The resort was the first ski area to install a chairlift in California, and was the first on the West Coast to install a gondola. The resort now has a loyal following of skiers that love the unspoilt, natural and non-commercial lure of Sugar Bowl. With an impressive 550 inches of snowfall a year over a skiable 1650 acres, our 321ski school groups can be sure of decent conditions and variety of terrain (and the fact there will be very few groups there as it is exclusive to 321ski is a real bonus!).
With a breakdown of 17%, 45% and 38% for beginner, intermediate and advanced respectively, the majority of trails are geared towards the intermediate skier. Our groups that have skied in resort return with feedback that it feels like a less crowded version of an European resort - and that is no surprise seeing that an Austrian from Kitzbuhel was a major architect in establishing the ski area back in 1938, as well as investors ranging from Walt Disney himself (hence one of the linked mountains is called Mt Disney) to US Presidents!
Three terrain parks complete the ski experience for advanced pupils, whilst beginners start at the gentle terrain by the base lodge.
Lake Tahoe famously gets around 300 days a year of sunshine, so with views of either the sparkling Lake Tahoe or the stark contrast of the Nevada desert, Sugar Bowl is a unique resort that won't disappoint.
The resort offers a great variety of skiing over 4 different inter-connected mountains. You won't be found wanting on your school ski trip!
