I had just enough time to squeeze a morning of skiing in while in NC yesterday. The season ends this weekend so conditions were getting a bit thin. Sugar has 1100’ of vertical which is steep at the top and gets progressively flatter. I skied most of my runs just skiing the top half and mid-loading the lift. Only a few dozen people were there so lines and crowds were a non-issue. The best run was the double black at the top. It was decently steep and groomed.
I didn’t expect much in NC and Sugar wasn’t much but it was fun. It reminds me most of a middle of the road Midwest ski area. It has more vertical than the Midwest but the ski area is small and snow quality was close to 100% man made. The steep sections of the runs were only steep for about 200 vertical feet. There are only really 3 top to bottom runs but it was enough for half a day.
