Winter Fun, Spring Style - March Madness At Sugar Mountain Ski Resort

Banner Elk, NC -

March Madness means discounted rates beginning Monday, March 5th at Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. Skiers and snowboarders can delight in 25% savings on lift tickets, rental equipment and lessons for the remainder of the ski season. Plus Winter Value Packages are discounted 40%; making spring skiing and riding more attractive than ever.

March Madness also signals a new season and a new attitude. BOSS HAWG brings their distinctive brand of Blue Grass to the Sugar Mountain Lodge March 3rd and 17th. Both shows begin at 4 pm and deliver two hours of rousing, foot tapping music.

On Sunday, March 4th we celebrate the life of the late Dick Trundy, a decorated Marine Corps General and aviator who served as Sugar Mountain's Director of Operations after his retirement from the service. The Dick Trundy Sugar Cup Giant Slalom competition is a NASTAR style competition open to skiers and snowboarders from the age of four to seniors 65 years and up. Event registration begins at 7:30 am with racing starting at 9 am on Big Red. One-hundred percent of all $15 entry fees go to the American Cancer Society.

March 4th as well marks Sugar Bear's Birthday Celebration another annual event that adds to the magic of the spring ski season on Sugar Mountain. Activities include the Great Bear Race, special treats, and of course cupcakes and ice cream. Kids love this event and that always puts a smile on the adults, too.

On Sunday, March 18th Sugar Mountain hosts the Sixth Annual Easter Egg Hunt right on the slopes. Dress up in your Easter Best costume and join Sugar Bear and Sweetie Bear in the snow in search of prize-filled eggs. Hundreds of colorful plastic eggs will be tucked away over the Lower Flying Mile slope within view of the lodge. One lucky skier or snowboarder will find an egg containing a 2012-2013 Sugar Mountain season pass. The Easter egg hunt is free for all children 12 and under with a valid lift/slope ticket, or pass. The event begins at 9 am at the bottom of the No. 1 Summit lift.
