I may have missed something, but why is there no mention of Sugar Mountain on any ski reports, etc...? Not a Sugar apologist, but was curious as to why they are rarely mentioned on the site?

Hmm. Interesting. No, not really. I don't ski there.

It's been mentioned a few times on the morning report and on social media. Sugar isn't a member resort and has no desire to be involved with us. They are on the snow report and we have pages with info on them, but they won't be mentioned in any First Trax or announcements.
WOOOOOO!

This has been well-documented as to why they aren't mentioned in First Trax/announcements, but the reasons why sugar isn't a SkiSE "member resort" remain unknown, outside of the SkiSE staff. I don't think its financial.

they are too busy blasting guests in the face with ice and exaggerating snow totals to report...

At least they get their trails open...no white lightning at beech yet!!!??!! Wtf. I am fine with the exaggeration of snow totals, I prefer having more than two or three trails to ski on. I can check the snow totals on booneweather.com, and beech and sugar get the same amount anyway. And....news flash, you are likely skiing the man made stuff in nc anyway
With all that said, I’ll be at sugar Thursday if anyone wants to ski the only real black diamonds in nc.

I agree that Sugars got the terrain. With the addition of Gunther's way, and the amount of work that took, I don't see why another connecting route couldn't have been cut, because all traffic going thru that top narrow dogleg is a mess. But I frequently create my own routes on google earth, and yet no one consults me, strange

I agree guys, the trails could of been laid out a little better. You definitely have to watch out on Northridge and be ready to dodge the carnage of the new skiers. However, it could be much worse (see Timberline). To be honest I am very happy with the recent upgrades to both Sugar and Beech. Now if we could just get the crowds to stay home (catch 22, I know).
