Located on Donner Summit near Lake Tahoe, Sugar Bowl Ski Team lays the foundation for passionate skiers to embrace challenge with grit, grace and courage.

Grit.
Grace.
Courage.

These are our guiding principles.

At Sugar Bowl, we know that a ski team experience is much more than about learning how to carve a turn, cut a cornice or skate up corduroy. It's really about laying a foundation for passionate skiers to embrace challenge with grit, grace and courage.

Grit to shave off that hundredth of a second, to keep at it on the coldest of days, to become the person that voice inside your head says you can be.

Grace to pick yourself up when you fall, to stand tall whether on the podium or behind it, to go through every start with your head held high, ready to learn and grow.

Courage to put your mind, body and spirit to the test. To let your natural abilities be realized, to drop into an experience that will prepare you for any situation, for the rest of your life.

Join us on the Sugar Bowl Ski Team.
