The 2021-22 season is kicking off today.
Sugar Mountain will kick off their season at 9a today after some epic work from their mountain operations crew over the weekend.
Today’s photo of the day is from Sugar Mountain over on Instagram. The mountain operations crew at Sugar – and all of the resorts – have been hard at it.
As Mike wrote yesterday, it looked like a manmade blizzard at several resorts over the weekend, and Sugar Mountain was no exception.
Sugar will have the Summit Express chairlift open with Northridge, Switchback, and Upper and Lower Flying mile available for skiing from 9a-4:30p today.
They are reporting an 8-22″ base with a manmade and frozen granular surface. You can check out a live view at conditions at skisugar.com/cams.
Opening Day is always exciting.
If you are headed to Sugar today, be sure to send us some photos and a trip report as we would love to hear about your opening day experience.
We are keeping an eye on Cataloochee as we expect they could open within the next day or two. Stay tuned for the latest from Maggie Valley.
Snowmaking will continue at most resorts as temperatures allow and the best part?
We are seeing natural snow that has fallen overnight.
Canaan Valley and Timberline received just over three inches since Sunday morning, while Snowshoe has also received three inches of fresh snow.
Wisp also received a couple of inches of snow overnight.
Be sure to check out the Snow Report page for all those details later this morning.
Between the snow falling and the snowmaking, it was quite exciting to see all the social media posts from the resorts over the weekend.
