Another NC head, huh?

I just hit Sugar Friday... slow slush during the day, but it was decent at night.

Regarding the indoor goodness, I'm just gonna be optimistic and say, "there's a first for everything..."
I rode sugar thursday and like you said it was pretty slow during the day but it was a solid sheet of ice that night. The wind was strong and blew everybit of loose snow down the mtn. I should have brought my ice skates to be honest. Me and my buddy just sessioned the first box for a while.

I'm from knoxville so it's a 3 hour drive for me to catch sugar and a little over two to hit cat. Sugar has the better park by far if you're more into jumps but cat has a decent little rail yard. You really think cataloochee will have snow until april bro? I saw their forecast showing highs in the 70's thoughout this week.

But, I'd definitely be a regular if NC got an indoor slope. Anything for a longer season!

You guys ever been to ober? It's a shithole compared to beech and sugar but it's half the drive and wednesday is free college night so I can't really beat that.

Friday it was a little crunchy, but not icy really as the temperature wasn't freezing. The slightly slushy day snow just got a little harder.

I'm keeping updated with the indoor area, so I'll update this thread accordingly.

Think I'm heading to Snowshoe this weekend.

Sounds like the pics would be depressing, lol, but if they start building again, definitely grab some shots!

So, how bad is the surface at Cat and how much are they charging for passes?
