Stay and ski packages begin at $150 and include lodging, a lift ticket, access to onsite skiing and sledding hills, heated outdoor pool, hot tub and sauna, plus Granlibakken‘s famous hot breakfast buffet.

Sugar Bowl offers terrain to accommodate beginners and challenge experts, spreading across four peaks with 103 trails serviced by 13 lifts and 1,650 acres with 1,500 vertical feet. Seventeen percent of the resort’s trails are reserved for beginners, 45% intermediate and 38% advanced. Check out the terrain on their webcams.

Sugar Bowl is a favorite because it maintains a classic ski atmosphere while providing modern amenities, with more than $20 million in upgrades made in 2013. The upgrades include a new chairlift that opens an entire new peak to lift-served skiing and riding, a new fitness and aquatic center and a ski-in/ski-out campus for Sugar Bowl Academy.

More than three miles long, Crowley’s off of Mt. Lincoln is Sugar Bowl’s longest run, while the steepest would be The Palisades. Skiers and boarders say Sugar Bowl’s best kept secret is Strawberry Fields. Find out where you’re going before you hit the slopes with their trail map.

Sugar Bowl’s terrain park is off Mt. Judah Express and divided into three parks — Golden Gate, Coldstream and Caboose — all featuring jump lines, boxes, rails, spines, and mini boarder-x to name a few.

If you’re a first-time skier or boarder, or looking to brush up on your skills, Sugar Bowl offers lessons for children and adults, plus clinics and rentals. For children, The Den is a terrain-based learning school that simplifies and animates the process of getting kids on the slopes with a staff of accomplished instructors.

Meanwhile adults can take advantage of the Mountain Sports Learning Center which offers Progression Sessions that take you from first-time skier to intermediate skill level.

Whether you’re looking for some nourishment to jump start your day, or looking to wind down after skiing the Sierra Vista Bar & Grill at the Mt. Judah Lodge offers breakfast and lunch.

There’s also the Mid Mountain Lodge between Christmas Tree and Mt. Lincoln chairlifts that offers cafeteria and grill options such as pizzas, burgers and sandwiches as well as an upstairs loft bar for libations. There’s an outside barbecue area on weekends with a mountain-side deck that provides for stunning views of Disney’s East Face.

Meanwhile, The Village Lodge offers The Dining Room with French-inspired California cuisine in a classic high-alpine Lodge.  Fine dining selections feature Scottish seared salmon, elk tenderloin and vegetarian penne pasta, complete with an extensive wine.

With an average annual snowfall of 350 inches, Mt. Rose has been named one of the “10 Hippest Ski Areas You Rarely Hear About” by MSN.com and one of the “10 Best Areas You’ve Never Skied” by SKI magazine.

Of the 60 trails, approximately 20% of the resort runs are for beginners, 30% intermediate, 40% advanced (black diamond), and 10% expert (double black diamond). The longest run is 2.5 miles. Get a feel for things before you go with their trail map.

Noteworthy runs are 200-acre The Chutes, an extreme challenge that offers some the longest vert in North America. This means you don’t just get a quick glimpse of a steep run, you get 1000-plus feet of north facing slopes with pitches from 40-55 degrees.

Homewood offers big adventure along cozy mountainside

December 23rd, 2013

Homewood has unbeatable lake views to complete your day of skiing in Lake Tahoe.

Homewood has unbeatable lake views to complete your day of skiing in Lake Tahoe.

Located a few miles from Granlibakken, Homewood is easy to access by vehicle or you can take the shuttle with daily pick-up at the front steps of Granlibakken at 8:30 a.m. and again at 9:30 a.m. When you’re done for the day, the shuttle brings you back.

Granlibakken has partnered with Homewood and offers value-added ski and stay packages for the 2013-14 ski and board season.

With an average seasonal snowfall of around 450 inches and a 300 days of trademark Tahoe sunshine, there’s a reason SKI Magazine ranked Homewood among the Top 10 resorts in California and Nevada last year.

Homewood has a base elevation of 7,230 feet and a summit of 7,880 feet that amounts to a 1,650 vertical foot elevation gain. There are 8 lifts providing access to 64 runs. Among those runs, 15 percent is considered beginner terrain, 50 percent intermediate, 35 percent advanced, plus terrain parks. The longest run is the 2-mile long “Rainbow Ridge.”

Lifts open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily (weather and conditions permitting). With Ellis Peak sheltering the entire Homewood mountain from high-ridge winds, the term “wind hold” is almost unheard of. Check out the interactive trail map here.

New to the slopes or looking for a refresher? Check out Homewood’s ski and snowboarding school, which offers all-ages beginner to advanced classes as well as “learn to ski and ride” packages for adults. Homewood is one of the only resorts of its kind to offer free intermediate and advanced lessons, Sundays through Fridays during non-peak dates throughout the season.

Among Homewood’s well-tuned terrain parks are:

  • Lakeview Park at the bottom of Rainbow Ridge run
  • Kolby’s Escape Park, at the top of Old Homewood Express Chairlift;
  • Happy Park (also known as Shredwood), next to Happy Platter at the North Lodge beginner area featuring a 10 foot up box, a 10 foot down box, a 20 foot flat box jump, a 17 foot jump, a 20 foot A-frame rail, and a 20 foot hip with a rail.
  • Madden Ridge Terrain Park near the top of the Madden Chairlift and Money Booter, just down from the Big Blue View Bar on Cradle run.

Alpine Meadows was founded in 1961 by a group of avid skiers from San Francisco who discovered the potential at Alpine Meadows while skiing at neighboring Squaw Valley. A number of families pooled resources to develop the resort and John Reily originally founded Alpine Meadows as Ward Peak. Alpine Meadows opened for the 1961-1962 season with three lifts. JMA Ventures purchased Alpine Meadows from Powdr Corporation in July 2007 and operated the resort until the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows joined forces in November 2011.

If you’re a boarder you’ll gush over Alpine’s terrain parks, featuring the mile-long Firing Line, the Sidewinder, The Bunker, Cannonball and the Barracks.

The resort offers a complimentary shuttle service so it is easy to get to Granlibakken and back. The shuttle provides enough room for equipment so that guests can travel comfortably to and from the mountain while enjoying the view.

Alpine’s main lodge amenities and facilities make it easy for guests to enjoy a day of mountain adventure. Skiers and boarders can relax on the expansive Sundeck and soak up the views facing the mountain and watch as skiers and riders ascend down the slopes.

Family friendly, Alpine offers the The Kid Zone which includes an indoor play area featuring games, indoor jungle gyms for small children, and a dining area for a relaxing lunch or après-ski spot.
