Sugar Bowl Ski, Donna Pass, Sierra Nevada

DRIVING UP THE MOUNTAINS, THE AIR BECAME COLDER AND COLDER... but that did not deter us from getting down to breathe in the freezing fresh mountain air.  This is the best time to go sightseeing at the mountains, firstly, the drive up the mountain was smooth, no heavy traffic, the place was not crowded, parking was easily accessible and we can take any picture we need at any angle without any third party in them.   We are not photogenic but we simply like to be in the pictures at any angle....  LOL..

This place is called Sugar Bowl, it is a ski and snowboard area in northern Placer County, along the Donna Pass of the Sierra Nevada.  Sugar Bowl was the first ski area to install a chairlift and the scenery here is simply breathtaking!  I don't know when I would be coming by here again, thus the endless pictures to commemorate this beautiful tourist resort.....
Upon arriving at the entrance...

The Gondola where skiers were being carried down to the snowy mountains for skiing.. 
We didn't go down the mountains via the gondola... too much for me... LOL...
I prefer to be mesmerized by these awesome scenic from where I stood... 
The scenery was indescribable.... 
Love this one Most!
As usual... my footprints.... 
And my crazy poses which slowly "spread" to my siblings....
No sooner, they were doing what I did in mine... LOL...

  3. I believe I can fly! Your poses seem to be saying. Your siblings must be thinking - can't beat her so join her lah. Thanks for showing us the beautiful scenery. Must be very cold up there.

  5. So beautiful Claire! My favorite is your favorite. I love that little lake down there. So you do not ski..me neither. The first time I tried was the last, as I fell on my butt before I even started.
