Over the summer, North Carolina’s Sugar Mountain Resort has continued to make progress on its multi-year, $2 million capital improvement plan. Improvements this year focus on upgrading aging chairlifts to provide a smoother ride. To that end, the drive stations of the brown and red lifts have been rebuilt, and new lift attendant buildings have been constructed.
The handle rope tows in the tubing park have also been replaced with a new Magic Carpet.
“Our guests absolutely loved the addition of the Magic Carpet lift in the beginners’ area last year,” said Sugar Mountain’s Ski and Snowboard Director, Len Bauer. “The experience should be just as gratifying for our tubing guests.”
Sugar Mountain has also been upgrading its presence on the Internet, developing an easier-to-navigate web site. A preview of the web site can be viewed at http://dev.skisugar.com/.
