2slikstix - yep, I live right off I-40 @ 751, work in Cary. Sharing a ride would be cool though i generally need a few days notice to plan a day off - too many commitments pile up during the week.



you pref sugar to wg? i'd like to visit sugar again since it has been so long - just have bad memories of heinous lift lines.



this thread is becoming a local hole - note that swix007 is durham also.

photos are misleading since they are usually axially directed with the slope instead of the horizon.



Maybe, but the stance of the boarder below you suggests that's got the degree of steeepness of a beginner slope.

porter, if i'm not mistaken, the boarder is actually located just before the lip of the upper cliffhanger. you can just see the lip beyond the boarder. indeed, that dude is probably sweatin' the little drop he's got in front of him!



as for the local durham thread, i, too, would like to get to sugar or cat, preferably cat, before the end of the season, so keep me in the loop. i'm right off 15-501, between 40 and 85.

you guys that have not been should go - check the forecasts and slope conditions. as swix says, that photo does not do it justice. it's not extreme by any means, but it is definatley not a greenie.



swix, slick, lets try to run it. winter might return next week making the next look promising. might/also could try to make the nc summit at beech.
