Sugar Bowl has opening date after a snowstorm in Sierra

After recent days of significant snowfall in the Sierra, Sugar Bowl Resort welcomed skiers and snowboarders on Wednesday for its grand opening. Lift tickets must be purchased in advance for specific dates. Wednesdays and Thursdays are limited to season pass holders and those who have pre-purchased tickets for those days. Others will have to wait until Friday before they can hit the slopes. Jerry Fields is a skier taking advantage of fresh powder. He said that in previous years, the snowfall was heavier and thicker. “So today is an extraordinary opening day,” Fields said. “There was an explosion!” According to Drew Jackson, director of marketing and communications for Sugar Bowl Resort, just four days ago, the snow outlook looked dire. On Tuesday, the resort dealt with outages of power and internet access due to power outages in the area due to snow. Fortunately, power was restored around 6:45 p.m. that same day. “This was one of the best opening-day snow conditions we’ve had in a long time,” Jackson said. . “The snow was very deep. At first the snow was very heavy and dense, which was good because it stuck to the rocks and the ground, and then the things that came out recently on there were very nice and dry and fluffy, that’s really. ideal for skiers and snowboarders.” The Jerome Hill, Christmas Tree and Nob Hill lifts were up and running on Wednesday and the resort hopes to open sooner.
