Sugar Mountain shuts down the ski season after today’s fun in the sun with the ritual “burning of the snow.”
by Randy Johnson
Later this afternoon, the crowd of skiers, Sugar Mountain employees, and longtime season pass holders will see a another installment in Sugar’s rite of spring.
After a massive grooming machine piles up a ring of the seasons last snow, the fire is lit and the season symbolically subsides.
Kim Jochl promises, “Snow burning, live music, camaraderie, and other fun festivities!” The event usually involves sipping brews on the big deck beside the base lodge and today’s spectacular weather should provide the the perfect backdrop.”
The final day often includes costumes and even some Sugar devotees sporting dozens of season passes from years past, even many decades past.
Don’t miss it. Burn the snow today at Sugar.
