Exposed area north of Lake Tahoe with highest snowfall in California, best for experts. Lodging in Truckee but Squaw Valley nearby.

Exposed area north of Lake Tahoe. The first Sierra Nevada area to be developed, next to the railway from the Bay area to Truckee (and so away from the lake); but with five fast quads, there is nothing antique about it now. Sugar Bowl claims a huge average snowfall of 500 inches a year. We were impressed by the varied terrain, including lots of genuine black and double-diamond runs from the higher lifts as well as good cruising; the single-black Silver Belt is rated by an experienced American reader as his favourite run in the US. There is lodging at the base in The Inn, and a small development of condos is under way at the Mt Judah base, near the smart day lodge.
