It’s Snowing! Time to Come Out and Play!

It’s cold outside and the snow is falling. Come stay at Truckee Donner Lodge and discover what’s heating up at Sugar Bowl Resort.

Every year, Sugar Bowl has their family-friendly Poker Run. You don’t need to know how to play poker, just ski and ride around the resort, visiting at least five of our Poker Chip Stations which are located all over the mountain. Visit as many Poker Chip Stations around the resort, taking a selfie to prove you were there. Then, return to the lodge within the time limit and you’ll earn a card in your poker hand for each station you visit. We’ll choose your best hand for you, and stack you up against other players to determine who wins! $1000 and tons of great prizes are up for grabs!

Try out Sugar Bowl’s annual Banked Slalom. Wiggle as fast as you can through the ‘snake-run’ style course, specifically built for the event – featuring flowy banked turns and creative features that will be sure to leave a smile on your face. Awards and festivities to follow. Proceeds benefit the High Fives Foundation.

This year, Sugar Bowl is offering Passholders an Early Up on Nob Hill and Mt. Lincoln Express on February 14th! Enjoy cookies and hot drinks for a special morning getting first turns on the mountain.

Whatever tickles your fancy when you’re playing, you’ll want to relax in comfort at the end of your day. Truckee Donner Lodge is the place!
