Located at Lake Tahoe, California, Sugar Bowl Academy is a fully accredited college preparatory high school for competitive skiers. It's a world-class ski academy for Alpine, Nordic and Freeride athletes.


Our comprehensive, year-round strength and conditioning program is built on the culture, community and soul of the school.

Development and Excellence

Although each athlete is unique, physical development and optimal movement mechanics are necessities for all. We've developed a conditioning program that sculpts a healthy mind and promotes physical excellence for you at every stage of athletic development.

You are building a physical foundation that makes you stronger, quicker, more flexible and mentally tough. Each season brings new challenges but the goal is to connect your program week-to-week, season-to-season and year-to-year to build the best you over your time at SBA.


When we're inside, you'll be in a 10,000 sq. ft. facility appropriately named the Sporthaus, with state-of-the-art training equipment and workout spaces. However, our community has a passion for the outdoors and the Sierras provide the perfect backdrop to find challenges outside of a weight room.

Walk out the front door for trail runs on the world-famous Pacific Crest Trail, mountain bike though Van Norden Meadow and time yourself as you bike or run up Old Highway 40; we encourage you to know the surrounding wilderness. You'll find these routines to be good for your body, mind and spirit.
