Blessed by more than 32 feet of snow this season, Sugar Bowl Resort plans to extend its ski season until almost May.

Sugar Bowl’s executive director of marketing and sales, Jon Slaughter, wrote in a press release that the stars aligned this season, providing even more time to shred the resort’s collection of groomed trails, off-piste areas and terrain parks.  

“We’ve seen significant storm after storm this season, and in celebration of the incredible snow conditions, we are extending the season another two weeks so skiers and riders can take full advantage of it,” he said.

Sugar Bowl, which is located on Donner Summit in North Lake Tahoe, also announced two springtime ski competitions. On April 1, the resort will host an Uphiller, where ski tourers and splitboarders can complete vertical climbing laps for prizes.

At the Tiki Pond Skim on April 22, the resort will set up a makeshift beach where snowboarders and skiers can attempt to zip across a liquid pond after building up a head of steam. A pop-up tiki bar will be near the pond—for toasting to successful sends or taking the edge off of bitter wipeouts.

Sugar Bowl will be open through April 23, operating daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
