Big news for the 13/14 season, Sugar Bowl is installing the new Crow’s Peak Chairlift, which will greatly expand the amount of advanced and expert terrain on the west side of the resort. A new campus for Sugar Bowl Academy will be completed this fall, offering larger facilities and allowing students to ski from Sugar Bowl Resort runs to the classroom, as well as easy access to training facilities at Sugar Bowl.
