Sugar Mountain Ski Resort’s summer season is now underway. Improvements undertaken in anticipation feature changes to the bike park. Trails have been rebuilt and expanded to include an Expert, Advanced Intermediate, and Easy bike trail and an Intermediate and Easy hiking trail. The bike trails are wider, and treks from the summit to the base have been enhanced with rollers, pumps, jumps, small dips, tabletops, and more. The Magic Cycles shop at the base lodge rents bikes and has other items for sale like helmets and body armor. Skilled staff are adept at repairing bikes, too. Trail maps for hikers and bikers are available online and in a mailbox at the base of Flying Mile slope. The Summit Express will carry people, with or without their mountain bikes, to the summit. And, starting July 4, the chairlift will give visitors scenic views just for kicks. A blowout that includes views of fireworks from the mountain will also commemorate this special day. Tubing, rafting, caving, golf, and tennis are other amenities the mountain offers. All the summer fun will culminate in Oktoberfest, when it will only be months until the skiing begins all over again.
