Sugar Bowl Resort in Norden, CA which is in the Lake Tahoe region, is getting ready to re-open their slopes for Fourth of July skiing and riding. As previously reported here at The Ski Channel, Sugar Bowl is one of the few U.S. Ski Resorts either open or re-opening for our long holiday weekend. And what a way to celebrate the U.S.’s Independence then riding some slopes…in July no doubt!

Check out a picture below that Sugar Bowl has released THIS MORNING, Wednesday, June 29. According to their Facebook Page, they have received 103 inches this morning/overnight. Where are you skiing/riding for Fourth of July?

FUN QUICK NOTE ON SUGAR BOWLHannès Schroll, Austrian skiing champion and instructor purchased the land of Sugar Bowl for $6,740 in 1938. He originally tried at the time to get funds from his buddy who he had been giving ski lessons to, Walt Disney. Eventually Mr. Disney gave Schroll some money for funding and renamed one of the resort’s 4 peaks, Mt. Disney in his honor.
