Sugar Mountain Resort is Open!
- November 01st, 2012
Sugar Mountain Ski Resort in North Carolina is open today, on Halloween, Wednesday, October 31, 2012 for day skiing and snowboarding.
The mega storm, Sandy, or can we call it a “Southeaster” pounded the East Coast, ushering in winter in the North Carolina Mountains. Over nine inches of natural snow, cold temperatures and round the clock snowmaking provided the perfect elements for Sugar Mountain Resort’s unprecedented early opening and first time ever October opening. In its 43 year history, Sugar Mountain Resort’s earliest opening was on November 5th in 1976.
Snowmaking began Sunday evening, October 28th and continues around the clock. A six to thirty inch base of natural and manmade packed powder surface covers the Upper and Lower Flying Mile slopes. The Summit #1 Lift is in operation to the 3/4′s station. Special early opening lift/slope ticket prices are $30 for a full-day session and $25 for a half-day session.
