Sugar Bowl Resort, perched high atop Tahoe’s Donner Summit, has been a historic Tahoe destination since 1939. Known for world-class skiing and ample snowfall in the winter, Sugar Bowl is equally well known as a popular and attractive summer spot to host corporate outings, family reunions and of course memorable weddings, complete with world-class cuisine and gracious hospitality stemming from a guest-centric staff. Sugar Bowl offers alpine charm and first-rate service for your magical day.

Nestled high in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains near Lake Tahoe, Sugar Bowl's historic lodge serves up a unique setting where the resort grounds can be all yours for an unforgettable private wedding. Sugar Bowl is known world-wide for its picturesque setting, gourmet food, imaginative menus and beautiful presentations. With accommodations for 80 people in the lodge and more available on-site and nearby, you’re sure to accommodate everyone comfortably for your special day.

Options are vast and varied for your ceremony and reception. The famous Sun Deck atop Mt. Disney, complete with breathtaking mountain vistas, glorious sunsets and a well-manicured lawn area for you and your guests to bask in the fresh, crisp alpine air, is a perfect choice for an on-mountain outing. For indoor receptions, you’ll find no finer than our Four Peaks Restaurant, where Executive Chef Al Davis and the rest of the staff work tirelessly and diligently to provide an outstanding menu and a wedding day that is uniquely yours. Lake Mary provides a unique, secluded private lake or ceremonies or parties, and the Judah Lodge serves up a modern banquet room for events and ceremonies on a grand scale.

From the moment you arrive at The Lodge at Sugar Bowl, you are greeted as guests to this amazing resort, and can anticipate the ultimate alpine experience. At Sugar Bowl, you and your special guests can choose accommodations ranging from slopeside hotel rooms to magnificent lofts, and from newly built condominium units to well-appointed suites with mountain views. Whatever your ideal accommodation, we’ve got it for you.

The friendly and experienced staff at Sugar Bowl will work with you to make sure your wedding day is uniquely yours, and utterly unforgettable. Our on-site Wedding Coordinator will provide personalized, detailed and professional service, complete with passionate attention to detail, ensuring all of your wedding wishes come true.

We cannot say enough good things about Meghon and her team. Everything about our weding was perfect, and I can truly attribute that to the amazing staff. She was always responsive to email and budget conscious. This was especially true with flowers. She was on point with every vendor recommendation I asked for. She is crazy organized, which helped me to also be organized and or everything to go smoothly. Everyone always says stuff goes wrong at weddings, but seriously, I can't think of anything. Everyone also said it is some of the best wedding food they've had and the most amazing wedding they've been to. No one wanted to leave at the end of the weekend!
Additionally, the staff are amazing. Anything we asked for from anyone magically happened. Also one of our friend's flights was delayed and they landed in Reno at 1am. As you can imagine, it's difficult to find Sugar Bowl in the dark, especially when you've never been there. The front desk staff sat on the phone with them at 3am, helping them to navigate every turn and make sure they didn't get lost. This is level of customer service they had with every interaction with all of our guests and us all weekend.
Everything was amazing and I can't thank Meghon and her team enough for our perfect day. We had zero complaints from any guests about anything (amazing, seriously), besides the fact the weekend ended too soon. We can't say enough positive things and will never forget our weekend at Sugar Bowl. If we had to do it all over again, hands down, without hesitation we would use Sugar Bowl.

The venue and service exceeded my expectations by a million! I knew it would be a beautiful venue, but I was literally blown away by how gorgeous the grounds were and how amazing the entire staff was! The service was phenomenal and everyone was so helpful! The lodge was awesome and all my friends and family were able to stay on-site so it was a great summer camp/dorm feel which everyone LOVED! Meghon was so helpful and responsive throughout the whole planning process. I literally wish I could have a wedding there every weekend. I hope a friend gets married there so I get to attend a wedding there soon! I can't say enough good things about the entire experience. It was seriously the wedding of my dreams!

This outstanding venue and magnificent staff made for a once in a lifetime event for my son and daughter-in-law. The staff was accommodating and most helpful. They honored all our requests. Having guests stay at the lodge and surroundings condos made this 3 day gala magical. Anyone planning a very special event should look into this venue. You will be so glad you did. Hats off to Meghon, Lisa, and Jose. My heartfelt thanks to you.

I could not ask for a more perfect venue for both my rehearsal dinner and wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner at Lake Mary, and we were taken back by this hidden gem in the Sierras. Our wedding was at the Village Lodge and my family and friends had so much fun spending the weekend at Sugar Bowl. Meghon and her staff made my entire wedding planning easy, and she gave me the wedding of my dreams. Meghon was also my florist and she did an incredible job with our flowers. I was speechless when I saw our arch, tables, and decor around the venue. The food at Sugar Bowl is amazing! I would highly recommend this venue!

The staff and venue at Sugar Bowl Resort far exceeded my expectations! We were on a fairly strict budget and so were forced to decline many of their extra options that were available (The Disney Chair Lift, the Lake Mary Rehearsal, floral services). Despite this, their most basic package included spectacular lighting and decor, a full weekend of devoted and attentive staff, and floral decorations around the lodge that were coordinated with our wedding flowers and colors! Furthermore, Meghon surprised us with adding her own finishing touches at the ceremony site, which were breathtaking. We asked for a reduced price menu and still received an assortment of main dishes, salads, and appetizers that had even the most foodie of our guests salivating! We received the kind of service one might expect if we had opted for ALL of their extra options! I highly recommend Meghon and her staff at Sugar Bowl Lodge for ANY special event you may be planning, especially your wedding.

Davie and I were married at Sugar Bowl Resort on June 6, 2015 and could not be more thrilled with the entire experience. From the very beginning to the very last moment, the Sugar Bowl team was exquisite. Meghon was the best wedding coordinator I could have imagined. Meghon was always available for questions and was incredibly helpful along with Amanda on making all our dreams come true for our day. When she first told me if we can dream it, they will make it happen, I wasn't sure it was possible. I have never been more happy to be wrong! Every single detail was perfect. Additionally, Chef Alan made the most incredible French-Vietnamese fusion meal for the 140 guests. From the walnut chicken to the filet and custom pho bar... the guests were so happy with the food and could not stop complimenting the chef. The entire crew set up the hotel with flowers, tables, and more to make every guest feel welcome and loved. The fire pit was awesome for s'mores and hanging out each night. The hotel was perfect! We had most of our guests staying at the hotel or in houses on the property. Jose was amazing getting all the rooms sorted out and helping all the guests. If you love a beautiful mountain setting and crave a weekend-long wedding event, this is absolutely the best place for you! I could not be more complimentary of Sugar Bowl. Thank you!!

We hosted our daughter's wedding at Sugar Bowl's Lake Mary venue. For the year leading up to the wedding, communication was easy and thorough. Meghon was extremely friendly and professional providing us lists, venue visits, and a tasting. For the rehearsal and event, Amanda took over. Amanda was a delight. She answered all our questions and managed the site with a friendly demeanor. All of the Sugarbowl employees were friendly and professional. Lake Mary is stunningly beautiful for an outdoor wedding. Many of our guests commented on the gorgeous scenery, fabulous food, and fun activities set up for the reception. My daughter and I are Tahoe locals and we looked at nearly every venue in and around Tahoe. Sugarbowl was the best price and provided the best service.

We used Sugar Bowl for a destination wedding weekend and Meghon and her staff were attentive, helpful, very responsive and overall wonderful. I am the mother of the groom so we hosted a Friday night welcome dinner for all guests at Lake Mary and the setting was fabulous, excellent service, and great food. In addition to the event coordination, I also worked with Meghon on the flower center pieces for the tables which were perfect for the venue. She has a wealth of knowledge, is detailed orientated and her coordination let us enjoy the event rather than worry about the details. The wedding ceremony and reception the next day was picture perfect, once again with excellent service and great food.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about my experience with Sugar Bowl and my wedding. The staff was amazingly helpful and willing to go the extra distance everytime. I did a LOT of shopping for venues in the Tahoe/Truckee area and this is by far the beat deal available. The affordable price came with so many extra perks (like the wedding coordinator) that you just don't get at the other local venues. I wish I could get married at Lake Mary again!!
