Sugar Bowl's slopes remain a tasty selection of cruisers, rolling shoulders, steeps, and chutes. Its 1,500 acres of terrain and four mountain peaks are serviced by 13 lifts. If you got the legs for unabashed fun, stick around Mount Lincoln. Even if you don't, be sure to ride the Silver Belt chairlift to watch others zigzag down the Silver Belt, a natural gully-like halfpipe, once the hair-raising giant slalom course that tested the skills of Leo Lacroix, Billy Kidd, and Phil Mahre. From the top of Lincoln, it still makes even the best rippers act like a hot potato in a child's palm. Intermediates enjoy riding the high-speed Disney Quad that accesses the blue runs on Pony Express, Upper Mac, and Montgomery. Some of the best powder stashes are discovered below Crow's Nest Peak in Strawberry Fields.
