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.

The Details.


You may choose to make the entire payment in full or pay in two installments. To receive the May early bird pricing you must sign up and pay in full by May 31st. If full payment is not received by May 31st, ski team fees will shift to the next tier of pricing. SBSTA retains the right to refuse service to any family who has not made current payments.

Whenever possible we prefer check payments made payable to Sugar Bowl Ski Team & Academy and mailed to P.O. Box 68, Norden, CA 95724. However, you can also pay online by clicking here:


In recognition of the financial commitment families have made to skiing, SBST has developed a team fees refund policy for injury/illness related removal from the team. In the event an athlete sustains an injury or incurs an illness that does not allow them to rejoin the team for the remainder of the season, there is a schedule allowing for partial or full refunds depending on the date (posted in the team handbook given at orientation). NO REFUNDS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REASONS OTHER THAN INJURY OR ILLNESS.

Additional Fees

Volunteer Deposit – In addition to tuition, each family is required to pay a $450 work deposit, which will be billed to your account in the fall. If required hours are fulfilled, a credit will be issued at the end of the season. Hour requirements are 22 hours per family, 11 hours per single household where two parents or guardians are not present and 11 hours per mid-week family. All weekend program families are required to volunteer for at least one race day, one day of lunch setup and two days of lunch clean up.

Parent Association Dues – The Sugar Bowl Ski Team & Academy Parents Association (PA) is the unified parent organization for the Ski Team & Academy. In addition to tuition, all families will be charged $30 for annual PA dues.
