Sugar Bowl

About Sugar Bowl

Sugar Bowl Resort offers a unique wedding venue experience. Every scene of your wedding is complete with a stunning backdrop. Their wedding specialists excel at crafting each space so it’s both functional for your event and showcases the natural beauty of the landscape.

Looking for a private venue feel? After the last day of the ski season each spring, Sugar Bowl closes to the public for the summer, so you can be sure that your group is the only wedding party on site. If you’re after a laidback mountain vibe with plenty of peace and quiet, look no further.

Enjoy their exclusive “Lake Mary Day” to make the most of quality outdoor time with your friends and family the day before your wedding. While adventure sports aren’t within everyone’s wheelhouse, a day of outdoor fun at their private lake is accessible for all. The day before your wedding, plan to paddle, swim, and connect with your guests in a stress-free setting. After working up an appetite, savor custom catering from the Lake Mary restaurant. If a day spent at a stunning alpine lake can’t calm your pre-wedding jitters, what will?

Sugar Bowl has been in operation since 1939, so you’ll nail an authentic alpine experience that captures Old Tahoe charm with some European alpine flair mixed in. Capitalize on the classic cool ski area vibe because your guests are in for a mountain-top party like no other. You may want to warn them: stilettos not recommended.

Who can resist dancing under the stars? If warm summer weather has you wanting to spend every possible moment outside, they’re with you. Take advantage of the amazing Tahoe weather from May-September and host your whole party outdoors: ceremony, cocktail hour & reception. The deck of the Village Lodge is the ideal setting to throw a raging outdoor dance party.

Of course, as a backup, you’ll have the charming Belt Room Bar, the Lounge with its oversized stone fireplace, or the lovely Lake Mary cabin. Fingers crossed for a perfect warm day & cool night for your big event. Incorporating chairlift transport into your wedding day makes limo travel feel a little basic, doesn’t it? Your guests will be giddy (and others probably a little nervous) about the prospect of hopping on a lift and soaring to the summit of Disney at 7,953’. Reaching the summit, you’ll be surrounded by expansive views of the Sierra from Van Norden Meadow to Castle Peak. Even your “afraid-of-heights” guests will agree the adventure was worth it.

If you’re leaning towards a Tahoe wedding, you will want to arrange some fun mountain adventures to entertain your guests (and yourself!). With all these fun-filled and action-packed days, your crew is going to work up an appetite. At Sugar Bowl, their catering department delivers. Under the skillful guidance of Food & Beverage Director Steve Anderson, their offerings are fresh and delicious. They take pride in accommodating any mountain event, from elevated to casual.

Don’t stress about transportation or where to stay. Hosting an event at Sugar Bowl grants you exclusive use of the entire venue, including bar, lounge, dining room, decks and lawn for the whole weekend. Basically, you’ve organized a mini summer camp with the people that matter to you most. Sugar Bowl knows your wedding is important, but they will also make sure it’s really, really FUN.
