Sugar Bowl Ski Resort
Sugar Bowl is one of the oldest and longest running ski resorts on the west coast, having been in operation for over 70 years. During the last several decades this resort has replaced its older double chair lifts and added new quad lifts to open up new trails on its four mountain peaks, Mt. Judah, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Disney and the Crows Nest Peak. A 10-year expansion of the resort began in 1992, with addition of a new parking lot and a lodge at the base of Mt. Judah, a pedestrian village and more off-slope facilities. Another addition came in 1999 with the founding of the Sugar Bowl Academy, a college preparatory high school for competitive skiers.

Royal Gorge Cross-Country Ski Resort, the largest x-c resort in the US was recently purchased by the Truckee Donner Land Trust to preserve this land for future generations from development. Snowshoeing and other winter sports are right out your door accessing Tahoe National Forest. Minutes away are Alpine Meadows/Squaw Valley Ski Resort and Northstar California Resort.
Summertime on the Summit
Summer months reward residents with tranquility, comfortable temperatures and low humidity. With an average 300 days of sun each year and most during summer could be the reason locals say they came for Tahoe’s winters, but stayed for the summers. Numerous hiking and biking trails are a wonderful way to take in the beauty of this area. The lakes’ clean water is ideal for windsurfing, sailing, fishing, swimming and paddleboarding. As a friendly reminder, water sports and fishing are restricted to Dulzura. Serena, true to its namesake must remain untainted source of drinking water for locals.
