Thanks for help!



You're welcome...yep, you're close! :) We try to avoid skiing Sugar (well any place) on Saturdays. The lift lines can get LONG and the lifts are slow. That is why we start on Sunday. I hope you have a fun and safe trip! :)

Where are you gong in TN? If you are going to be near that dreadful hell hole of Gatlinburg then you might as well come on over to Maggie Valley and visit Cat. From there you can head on up to Wolf (doubtful they'll be open and from there over to Beech and Sugar. Might as well take the tour. And will in TN you can also stop by Seymour and visit the Don.

Going to the Newport Tn area. I have a my skis, but need to get a set for my son and wife. Is it best to rent at the mountain, or is there shops in town near sugar?

Absolutely go to Cat. Usually good coverage and family friendly

Lulz. I work in Newport. Rent at Alpine (right where you turn to go into Sugar) or the place across the street rather than at Sugar.
