I definitely enjoyed the sunshine yesterday, cruising down Upper Werner and Teewinot Gully on the soft, carveable corduroy, but today's weather is SO much better.

Sugar Bowl

Looks like El Nino is here to stay for the winter. The powerful storm that passed through last week left over 3 feet of snow and allowed us to open Lincoln Express, Disney, Jerome Hill, White Pine, The Flume, Mt. Judah, Nob Hill, and Christmas Tree. With the current storm showing up last night and predictions of another 3 feet of snow over the next few days, this weekend's skiing and riding is going to be incredible! If this snow keeps up, we're looking at opening the new Summit Chair later this month www.sugarbowl.com
