Sweet, sweet sugar, the resort is open. Sugar Mountain began spinning the lifts Nov. 7, two week earlier than last year. Snowmaking began Nov. 6 and with a man-made surface covering Upper and Lower Flying Mile, accessed by the Yellow lift, turns were made. Lift tickets cost $23 for a half day, $30 for the full day. As conditions allow the resort will be open. Call 800-SUGARMT for more information.
