With an upper-mountain base of 20² and over 55² of
natural snow falling thus far with more in the forecast, Sugar Bowl Resort
plans to open for the 2011/12 ski season on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday,
November 24th.  Resort Operators were pleasantly surprised on Sunday morning
with over 12² of fresh snow atop Mt. Lincoln, and with colder snowmaking
temps and yet another storm system forecast to move in late Wednesday, all
mountain operations were put into motion for a Thanksgiving Day ski & ride

Conditions permitting, operational plans will be:
Thursday, November 24th:  Open through the Judah Portal only, with both
White Pine and Jerome Hill lifts spinning.  Lift Ticket prices will be $52
Adult; $45 Young Adult/Senior; and $20 Child/Super Senior

Friday, November 25th through Sunday, November 27th:  Open through the
Judah Portal only, with White Pine, Jerome Hill, Christmas Tree, Mt. Lincoln
and Nob Hill lifts spinning.  Lift Ticket prices TBD

CLOSED Monday, November 28th through Thursday, December 1st

Re-opening Friday, December 1st, with lifts and terrain announced based
upon current conditions

Skiers and riders should stay tuned to www.sugarbowl.com for all opening day
