Sugar Bowl is an overlooked gem. This place is what ALL ski areas should aspire too be when they grow up. Great terrain for all abilities, classic old-school atmosphere mixed with modern amenities. Not too commercial. The lift system is top-notch. Close to Sacramento and the Bay Area. This is the best place to ski at Tahoe.
