Sugar WILL be night skiing tonight!

We haven’t received any word from the other areas as yet, but we do know that Sugar Mountain is open for night skiing tonight. There was no word as to how many slopes would open, but we’re going to go out on a limb just a little bit and predict that they will open from the 3/4 station with (2) slopes. However, they have been cranking out some snow and we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them reopen to the top by Sunday morning. We’ll keep you updated.

Snowshoe looking sweet! – We were out on the slopes at Snowshoe most of the day thus far and it has been snowing from moderate to hard snow for most of the day. We expected the conditions to be rather wet after an all night rain. However, temps quickly dropped and the slopes were actually relatively firm. Snowmaking is underway and Sunday should be one beautiful day for enjoying the snow.

Check back this evening or early AM for updates and photos from today.
