Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, North Carolina. Wednesday, April 26, 2023. – This summer gravity riders will have the chance to fill their yearning and addictive desires to plunge themselves down Sugar’s gnarly and knotty, long, and flowing trails well into the fall because the bike park and the Summit Express and Easy Street chairlifts will operate Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., June 30 all the way through…
Tuesday, July 4, Sugar Mountain Resort’s seventh annual Summit Crawl kicks off at 9 a.m. The adventurous one-and-one-half mile hike to Sugar Mountain’s 5,300-foot peak covers 1,200 feet of vertical via the wide open, ski slopes of Easy Street, Gunther’s Way, and Northridge. For those who cross the mile-high finish line complimentary water & fruit sponsored by Lowes Foods and a chance to win a 2023-24 Sugar Mountain Resort winter season pass awaits.
Ski season begins today at North Carolina’s Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. After Hurricane Nicole ferociously blew through the North Carolina mountains this past weekend, temperatures plummeted, and Sugar’s snowmaking machines began churning water and air into snow.
The Oma’s Meadow chairlift— a high-speed, detachable, four-passenger— is the newest member to join Sugar Mountain Resort’s uphill transportation system. The 2,225’ long Doppelmayr chairlift cuts travel time from nine minutes to just over two minutes and carries 2,400 passengers per hour from the lift’s base elevation of 4,451’ to its summit elevation of 4,915’. Additionally, the new installation makes way for the reconfiguration and widening of the lower portion of the Oma’s Meadow slope, creating a comfortable and roomy loading experience and a clear path for bypassing skier and snowboarder traffic.
