New Groomers, New Snow-Making Machines, New Rental Equipment & a Larger Sports Shop at Sugar Mountain Ski Resort
This season skiers and snowboarders will be excited about a slew of improvements, upgrades, and additions awaiting their arrival at Sugar Mountain Resort.
Three new Kassbohrer groomers, two 600’s and one 600 winch, replace the older ones. Five new automated snow-making machines, four SMI and one Techno Alpin, add to an already massive arsenal. Water storage capacity for snow-making is enlarged by thirty-percent. New Head rental skis and boots replace twenty-percent of the fleet, and new Head rental snowboards and boots replace half of its collection. The Sports and Gift Shop underwent an enlargement this fall and upped the floor space from 1,800 square feet to 2,320 square feet.
Olympic Super-G Medalist, Andrew Weibrecht Joins Sugar Mountain Resort’s Preseason Ski Clinic Coaching Staff
Not everyone appears on the cover of Sports Illustrated or skis their way to winning two Olympic medals, except of course, Andrew Weibrecht, who will be joining Sugar Mountain Resort’s preseason ski clinic coaching staff December 7-9. Nicknamed the Warhorse for the way he attacks the mountain, Andrew will spend each day up-close and personal with participants.
The 23-year-old ski racing camp coincides with SugarFest, a star-studded celebration which features Olympic figure skating silver medalist, Paul Wylie, and includes lift tickets, coaching fees, tuning clinic, video analysis and Saturday night dinner.
Sugar Mountain Resort, North Carolina’s largest snow-sports playground, offers skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, tubing and snowshoeing. Historical winter season opening and closing dates as well as annual snowfall can be found at http://www.skisugar.com/sugar-mountain-stats/.
