Rode Sugar both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was pretty chilly in the am. I was shocked how much snow they threw down considering there was dirt and rock showing two days prior. Very good coverage. I was content to ride from the 3/4 station down and was pleasantly surprised to see it open to the top. Thought for sure that would be sketch, but full edge to edge coverage from the top down. They really seem to have their game on with the snow making. The solid temps didnt hurt either. I did notice the pond is a little low now...

On to pics:

Saturday AM. Guns were on blast all day.

lifts spun up early on Sunday and I was doing laps by 8:15 with nobody around until close to 10a

Sunday was warmer with the guns coming off by 9. They let us on snow again early. Great no crowd day. It was good to shake the legs out and get a bunch of laps in.

I am still amazed at how much the snow making capabilities of our resorts have improved over the last 10-15 years. It wasn't that long ago that mid-season conditions looked like what we get now with two days of snowmaking. Gotta love technology.
