On-Snow Reporter Doug Burnett – Monday was the day to be at Sugar, if you had goggles. Early runs were patchy with too deep grinds in thin cover bringing up rocks. But with guns pumping, (and I counted 9 men tending snow guns for the 1.6 mile run), manmade powder quickly became the norm for the mountain. Natural snow began falling at 1:30 and came off and on all afternoon. My 185 Head Cyber x 60s were a little much for the sometimes sticky fluff, but when I switched to my 150 Freeride Rosi, the beast was tamed. Great conditions abound, and north bend was in mid season shape. Happy trails – Doug Burnett
