Sugarbowl Uphiller - April 1st, 2023

Who remembers the infamous Quad Crusher? The NEW Sugar Bowl Uphiller is a spin-off that still involves uphill travel, but allows participants to choose the amount of vertical climbing they want to do. The goal is to rack up as many human-powered “Lincoln laps” as you can in a day… without the help of a chairlift.

Start from the Judah Lodge at your own pace and use the designated route to skin up to the summit of Lincoln. At the top, check in with the race attendant to log your lap. We’ll have a pop up bar with refreshments, a DJ, and lawn chairs in case you need a break! For every lap you take, you’ll earn a progressive amount of raffle tickets and a better chance to score a sweet prize at the awards ceremony. When you ski/ride back down to the Judah Lodge to complete your lap, check in with the race attendant located at registration. Whether you want to do one lap or 10 laps, all uphillers are welcome at this event. When you need a break from all skinning, hang out with us at the pop up bars at the summit of Lincoln or the Judah Lodge. We’ll have live music, beverages, and lots of good vibes.

A valid season pass or uphill ticket is required to participate. Nonpassholders may register for $50 (includes an uphill ticket for the day.) Season Passholders may register for $25.


Registration: 7:30am-10am

Stop by at Judah Lodge and receive a bib. We’ll log your laps on this bib, so don’t lose it!

Event: 8:30am-2:30pm

  • 8:30am Shot Gun Start: There will be a shot gun start at 8:30am for any uphillers who are eager to max out their laps. There will be a rolling start option until 10am for any additional participants to join in.
  • Lap 1: From Judah, participants skin to the top of Lincoln using our designated uphill route. Participants earn one raffle ticket when they reach the top of Lincoln (where a DJ & pop up bar will be operating and open to the public). Then ski back down to Judah station and check in to have their lap marked completed.
  • Lap 2: Participants skin back up and, upon their second tag of the Lincoln station, they receive 2 raffle tickets, then return to check in back at Judah station.
  • Lap 3… and so on… A third tag of the Lincoln station earns participants 3 tickets. A fourth tag… you get the idea.

Fun Facts

    • Each lap is approximately 1,400' of elevation gain.
    • Bonus raffle ticket if you come in costume.
    • Valid season pass or uphill ticket required. Passholders have uphill access included with their pass. Non-passholders can opt for the $50 registration which includes a one-day uphill ticket. Uphill tickets will be issued at registration.
    • You can do as many (or as few) laps as you want on the course between 8:30am and 2:30pm, but you must check in at the registration between 7:30am and 10am to receive a bib. If you show up after 10am, you may skin the course, but you will not be able to compete for prizes.

Awards & raffle: 3:00pm

At the end of the event we will raffle off some great prizes. The more laps you take the better chance you have of winning! You MUST be present to win a prize at the awards ceremony.

If you win a prize, you will have the option to gamble your prize for a better one! All the big ticket items in the raffle are wrapped in unmarked brown paper boxes of various sizes. You may trade up for a pair of skis... or you may walk away with a live goldfish.
