IN North Carolina Sugar is open and the weather is forecast for a mostly sunny weekend with snowmaking possible for the next 6 nights. Look for highs around 40 (48 on Saturday) with a cool down again on Sunday – I expect pretty nice skiing and riding in the South this weekend.   

Sugar Mountain, near Banner Elk, NC – with an inch of snow on the ground, today Sugar is skiing from the top open on North Ridge, Switchback , the Flying Mile and the magic carpet area using Gunther's Express (high speed 6 pack and the magic carpet lifts, that’s 5 total slopes and two lifts on a 6 to 30” manmade powder and frozen granular base. Snowmaking is in progress.

 

Today's tip:                  

            Expect nice weather and good early season conditions this weekend in NC - and not too crowded for some great runs.

.           If you own your own skis, it’s time to get your skis and boards waxed and those bindings tested.
