March 26, 2014. Referring to the eight inches of snow that fell in the most recent snowstorm, Sugar Mountain Resort couldn’t have asked for better weather days before it will likely shutdown for the winter season.
Kim Jochl of Sugar Mountain Resort skied two runs this morning at the resort, which has 19 of its 20 trails open and has eight inches of fresh snow atop a base of 20 to 72 inches.
“Winter in March,” Jochl wrote in an email on Wednesday. “Temps in the teens. It’s incredible.”
Sugar Mountain is the last winter resort still open for skiing, snowboarding and tubing and those winter sport enthusiasts craving action on the mountain. The cold weather for late March will prevent more snow from melting and the extra snow is a bonus.
March Madness discounts apply. Skiers and snowboarders enjoy 25 percent savings on lift tickets, rental equipment and lessons for the remainder of the winter season. Plus, Winter Value Packages are discounted at 40 percent.
Jochl mentioned that while Sugar Mountain Resort didn’t have a definitive closing date, the resort was “shooting” to close this weekend depending on weather.
