Sugar Bowl has released 25 new homesites for sale at Summit Crossing in the ski resort’s ski-in/ski-out base area. The homes are centrally located in one of the most unique ski settings in the nation— a snowbound village where residents are brought to their home by snowcat and walk out their door to a frontyard of lift-served skiing or endless cross-country ski trails.

The quarter-acre, forested homesites range in price from $475,000 to $700,00 and feature creekside sites along the headwaters of the Yuba River, filtered views of the surrounding peaks of Donner Summit and a central location in a ski area renowned for its family friendly vibe, world-class ski team and tight-knit community.

The Summit Crossing offering is a rare opportunity to buy into one of the most storied ski areas in the country, a California-owned and -operated ski resort founded in 1939 that built the first chairlift in the state and where Walt Disney, Warren Hellman and Daron Rahlves have all called their home slopes.

Six of Summit Crossing homesites have been reserved or sold, leaving 19 currently on the market.

Summit Crossing homeowners gain access to a number of exclusive benefits.  Homeowners enjoy 24-hour VIP concierge service, ensuring that all arrival and departure needs are met, and that homes are properly maintained and protected. In addition, on-mountain perks such as private Express Line privileges at the chairlifts, and access to the world-class Sugar Bowl Ski Team are included.

But many homeowners choose Sugar Bowl for a completely unique Tahoe ski experience that combines world-class skiing with the unhurried feel of a true mountain experience.

Once the resort’s chairlifts close for the day, the village becomes a private snowbound playground for families to enjoy.

Sugar Bowl is also the closest major Tahoe resort to the Bay Area and Sacramento, and has limitless, four-season recreation available in the area, including world-class skiing, hiking, cycling, climbing, mountain biking and boating. Sugar Bowl’s downhill skiing is complimented by a direct connection to Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort, North America’s largest cross-country ski area.

The profits from each Summit Crossing homesite sale are re-invested into the ski resort in improvements that directly benefit homeowners. Currents sales are financing planned projects to build a fitness and aquatic center at the village base area and a new ski lift at the resort.

Sugar Bowl helps homeowners escape the hassles of home construction while still staying in control of as much of the home’s design and build-out as they desire. Each Summit Crossing homesite comes with the option of using Sugar Bowl’s Construction Contract Management, the resort’s full-service custom service that handles all of the details of home design and construction from permitting to change orders.
