Nov. 19, 2014. Tomorrow is a day to get up early! Sugar Mountain Resort’s widely anticipated and much talked about new slope, Gunter’s Way, will open to the skiing and riding public tomorrow, Nov. 20, at 8 a.m.

The intermediate slope features a variety of changing terrain. Situated on nine acres, Gunther’s Way is 150 feet wide and 2,900 feet long. An impressive 700-foot vertical guarantees an exciting challenge. With the help of a new 1,000 gallon per minute vertical water pump and Mother Nature’s frigid temperatures, the ten new SMI snow-making machines have been diligently pumping powdery, white snow around the clock.

“An early opening is cause to celebrate, but who thought we could open Gunther’s Way on Nov. 20? It’s a proud moment and one we will remember,” said Sugar Mountain Resort President Gunther Jochl with pride.

Sugar Mountain Resort spreads over 125 skiable acres offering skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, tubing and snowshoeing. Sugar is North Carolina’s largest snow-sports resort. For current conditions or to learn more about Sugar Mountain Resort please visitwww.skisugar.com or call 1-800-SUGAR-MT.
