Full review

Sugar Bowl combines both terrain and accessibility for the Bay area jet set crowd. Why schlep all the way to Tahoe City when world class skiing is available just over 2 hrs. from the city? With the additional hour of skiing on the front and back-end of your day, it is possible to get more vertical in one-day than over two days at a larger resort with longer lift lines. With the extra vertical, the gorilla out-and-back trip; departing early Sat. AM and returning same-day PM is easy... a welcomed reprieve from those hectic days in the office. And if that is not enough...go backcountry...plenty o' terrain beyond the reach of the lifts.

And avoid the traffic coming out of Tahoe City on the way home...
