Tickets are on sale for $23 for Sugar Bowl and $22 for Homewood at: The Backcountry in Truckee and Tahoe City, Patagonia Outlet Reno, REI Reno, Porters in Incline Village, Mountain Recreation in Grass Valley, Sierra Snowboard in Sacramento and Patagonia San Francisco. Grab your friends and family for the Support the SAC: Ski/ Ride Day at Sugar Bowl and expect a day of more than great skiing and riding.

Live music from Chalice will keep the atmosphere festive on the new Mount Judah Lodge deck as guests celebrate another great season both on and off-piste.
