Sugar Bowl is not 60 years old, it is 60 years young and enters the 21st century with an attitude that mirrors what its founders called the Sugar Bowl Style. Sugar Bowl is, and always will be, about people who love skiing. Hannes Schroll understood that when he first stood at the base of Mount Lincoln one summer weekend in 1937, envisioning an alpine village not unlike his parents home in the Austrian Tyrol. Four generations of skiers have called Hannes Schrolls place in the Sierra Nevada their winter home. This story is about those people, and a place called Sugar Bowl.
Within the covers of this beautiful duotone book, you will find a photographic chronicle from the first lodge to the modern facilities, from Hannes Schroll and Bill Klein to Toni Marth and Mike Iman, from Tiki Races to Tyrolean Nights and the famous Silver Belt. Robert Frohlich and S.E. Humphries have woven a tale of the people, the styles and the skiing on the hundreds of inches of white gold that fall every year on Mount Lincoln and Mount Disney. Reading this book you may hear Hannes Schrolls yodel and will remember your own halcyon days spent on the slopes of Sugar Bowl.
