Sugar Bowl is celebrating its 75th year this year and their history is a rich one.  The resort was founded by an Austrian ski fanatic, Hans Schroll, with initial investors including Walt Disney.  Back in 1937, Schroll’s capital was still tied up in a then occupied Austria. Disney invested the now seemingly small sum of $2500 and in turn his name was stamped on the peak that would become home to the first chairlift in California, opening in 1939. There is some more fascinating history about the resort here.
