  • I prefer this resort to North Star and other ski resorts because it’s less crowded, harder to get lost in, cheaper, and is much prettier. It is smaller, but still has a great variety of ski slopes and good food. I really enjoy the drive up to this resort because it’s so much more beautiful. I would recommend this ski resort to all people who know how to ski and aren’t extremely hardcore about their ski slopes.
  • Great place for a wedding. Disney lift to the top of the mountain for great views (and cocktails). Convenient to Donner and Tahoe lakes and vibrant communities. And the bar tender at Sugar Bowl a great guy!
