March 2, 2012. SUGAR MOUNTAIN — On Sunday, March 4, Sugar Mountain celebrates the life of the late Dick Trundy, a decorated Marine Corps General and aviator who served as Sugar Mountain Ski Resorts Director of Operations after his retirement from the service. Trundy was an avid skier who enthusiastically embraced the daily life of a ski area executive. Unfortunately he died of cancer in 2002.
