What’s New for 2006: Sugar Mountain Resort 5
Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

North Carolina’s Sugar Mountain Resort continues a multi-year capital improvement plan. This past summer, the resort has added new snowmaking machines to its fleet and upgraded six thousand feet of snowmaking pipes. The upgraded pipes are located on the Flying Mile and Easy Street slopes. Sugar Mountain also replaced its brown lift chairs with new Doppelmayr/C-Tec chairs. The resort plans to add a second live, streaming web cam and weather station to the mountain’s 5,300-foot summit.

Sugar Mountain will play host to the National Winter Trails Day in January 6, 2007, making it the southern most resort to participate in the program. The event, offered nationwide at participating resorts, allows children and adults to be introduced to snowshoeing.

Sugar has a habit of rounding up with everything.
