Rooster Allen – Trail Report – Sugar Mountain – December 15th

I was at Sugar this morning. Hardly anyone was there and I was able to ski right up to the chair with no wait. The snow was in great shape considering the warm spell we have been having. It was firm and fast for the first couple of runs and as the temps warmed up the snow softened up which made for some super skiing. The only bare spots were at the edges of the slopes and the middle of the slopes seemed to have a good base. There was a little brown in places which was probably where they had pushed the snow around. If today was any indication of what to expect the rest of the weekend I can’t wait to get back on the hill!

Until next report
