When getting outside requires face coverings and a respectable six-feet distance from each other, Sugar Mountain Resort’s hundreds-of-acres of outdoor space is the place to be. With decades of experience managing high-value recreation, the Sugar Mountain Ski Resort team enters a new season with significant infrastructure expansions and a commitment to safe operation. With guidance from the CDC, state and local public health officials, and the National Ski Areas Association, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort will be following Ski Well, Be Well principles, North Carolina Ski Areas Association’s Operating Best Practices created in response to COVID-19.
The energy of Independence Day is brewing, and Sugar Mountain Resort is getting ready.
Run, hike, climb, or crawl to Sugar Mountain’s 5,300-foot peak by way of the Easy Street, Gunther’s Way, and Northridge slopes on Saturday, July 4 when Sugar Mountain Resort hosts its fourth annual Summit Crawl.
The summer season may be unlike any other, but the spinning of chairlift bull wheels, the cascading wind wrapping around the speeding mountain biker, the calming view along the route aboard the Summit Express to Sugar’s peak and back, and the energy of Memorial Day and Independence Day have never been more welcome.
