Sugar Mountain Resort Offers Festivals, Mountain Bike Trails, Lift Rides and So Much More This Summer

May 23, 2014. This summer you can do lots of extra-fun, outdoor things on Sugar Mountain.

Sample an array of craft, import and domestic beer, wines and spirits at this year’s third annual SugarBrew festival on Saturday, Aug. 2. Listen to live music performances by local favorites. A selection of American summertime food will be available too. Of course, all festivals at Sugar offer ski-lift rides to its 5,300 foot peak.

imgresSugar’s 24th Annual Oktoberfest, held on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 11 and 12, is a weekend jam packed with an eclectic range of activities from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. At the very least, a visit to Sugar’s Oktoberfest is worth a Bavarian bratwurst and beer followed by a German waltz. Festival admission, parking and shuttle service are free!

July 18-19, the North Carolina Barbeque Society will host BBQ Boot Camp at Sugar Mountain Resort. Certified barbeque judge classes are destination events attended by barbeque and food enthusiasts from all over the world.

Speed your way down Sugar’s dirt trails on a mountain bike. We’ve put it on video for you; just in case you don’t make it up here this summer. Check it out, summit to base in five minutes here. You’ll increase your heart rate just watching!

The trail system which intertwines throughout the Village of Sugar Mountain can be used by hikers and bikers alike. Trail heads are accessible from many points throughout the Village. Daily usage is free of charge May 1-Oct. 19 from dawn until dusk. Trail maps are conveniently located at the base of Sugar Mountain and online here.

Soak in nature’s beauty or feel the sensations of American patriotism as you watch the area’s fourth of July fireworks while relaxing in a lift chair on your way to Sugar Mountain’s summit. Scenic chairlift rides operate every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Thursday, July 4 through Labor Day on Sunday, Aug. 31. One-time or all-day lift tickets are available as well as group tickets. Kids aged 4 and under ride free with a ticketed adult. New this year, on the fourth of July the Summit #2 chairlift will run until 10 p.m. for fireworks viewing.

Wouldn’t it be adventurous and romantic to get married on top of one of North Carolina’s highest peaks? At Sugar’s 5,300 foot peak your once in a lifetime mountaintop event will be surrounded by blue skies, vast green slopes, lots of trees, comfortable temperatures, family, friends and nature the way it was intended. After the “I Do’s” delight in a reception crafted to your personal preferences. Full-service reception options from pig-pickin’ to white table cloth are available. After all, love is everything!
