On Monday, November 20, 2006, North Carolina’s Sugar Mountain Resort became the second ski area in the southeast to open for the 2006-2007 winter season. The resort began making snow on Thursday, November 16 and continued through the weekend.

Sugar Mountain is offering a 6-24 inch natural and manmade powder surface on four slopes, including Northridge, Switchback, and Upper and Lower Flying Mile. The Yellow Lift is in operation. Sugar reports that this is the first time in the resort’s 37-year history that they are providing opening day skiing and riding all the way to the summit, located at 5,300 feet above sea level. Opening day terrain includes a 1.5-mile long run dropping 1,200 vertical feet.

On opening day, Sugar Mountain is charging $30 for a full-day lift ticket and $25 for a half-day session.

Yeah, it was late... Somehow that escaped DCSki's extremely rigorous copy editing process. Sigh! I just fixed the date.
