Sugar Mountain Resort began its 2012-13 winter season on Halloween 2012 and will remain open through Easter Sunday, March 31.

This makes Sugar the only ski resort presently open in the High Country.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Sugar is reporting 18 degrees at the summit, with seven inches of new, natural snow on the ground. Nineteen slopes on a 26- to 71-inch base are available, with 10 inches of natural snow expected through Wednesday.

“Closing day is always extra fun at Sugar,” marketing director Kim Jochl said. “By mid-afternoon on Easter Sunday, the sounds of live bluegrass will be heard from the deck. The outdoor grill will be cooking hot dogs and hamburgers, while the annual ceremonial snow burning officially concludes Sugar's 2012-13 winter season.”
