Sugar Mountain Resort Adds a New Pisten Bully Winch Groomer to its Fleet

Every day, twice a day the slopes at Sugar Mountain Resort are meticulously groomed. This season the resort has added a second Pisten Bully 600 winch groomer to the current fleet. This new powerhouse groomer provides extra hold and increased safety on the mountain. It is especially useful for grooming Sugar’s signature slopes like Whoopdedoo, Gunther’s Way, Tom Terrific and Boulder Dash. With the additional terrain of the Gunther’s Way slope and the reconfiguration of the mountain’s trail and lift system over the past two years, the new Pisten Bully 600 winch vehicle will help maximum grooming productivity and enhance the Resort’s effort to provide the best maintained snow surface possible for skiers and riders.
