Following the Winter Solstice, and especially once the New Year arrives, the push is on to get out and make the most of winter in its remaining months, thanks to a little extra light. Heading to the mountain is the ideal way to capture the essence of the season, with chilly air, snowy views of picturesque mountains and of course, plenty of fresh corduroy to carve. Sugar Mountain Ski Area in North Carolina is offering skiers and riders a chance to save 30-40 percent on a winter getaway during the peak of the season.
