March 14, 2020 – As we’ve continued to closely watch and adjust our operations to the rapidly changing world-wide impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we’ve made the decision to suspend operations at Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge until further notice. Following today’s mandate, by the Governor of Colorado, for all ski resorts in their state to close for the upcoming week, we felt it was prudent to reassess our local operational decisions as well. After consulting with several other California resorts, we made the difficult decision to close until further notice.

This was not an easy decision, nor was it made lightly. This is a fluid situation changing hourly. We will continue preparing the resort in hopes that current landscape changes allowing us to reopen before the end of the season. We apologize to guests who are at our resort now, and those who had plans to come up. Information about cancellations and refunds is available on our website, with many things like ski school, lift tickets, equipment rentals and hotel nights fully refundable. Please be reassured that we will get to everyone, but we ask for your patience as we work through what are sure to be a lot of requests.

As more information continues to become available and we can reassess our operations, we’ll be sure to keep you updated. We appreciate your continued support and understanding. We will get through this together.

Wishing you and your family good health,

Greg Dallas, CEO
Sugar Bowl | Royal Gorge
