This weekend, my son and I visited Sugar Mountain, North Carolina and had a fun afternoon tubing. The temperatures were very mild, and there were light sprinkles throughout the afternoon on February 11. We were overdressed for the weather, and were too warm as we observed the artificially-made snow melt around us.
I’m an expert skier and was eager to hit the slopes, though my son is a beginner, and was not as confident, which is totally fine. Sugar Mountain has ice skating, tubing, skiing, and snowboarding, so we had many different activities to choose from, and did not have to stick with skiing. Tubing was really fun, and likely, less potentially hazardous, especially with the large crowd of people who were there this weekend.
Sixteen years have passed since I first visited Sugar Mountain for skiing. Sugar Mountain is awesome for skiing, but it is a long drive from our home. With a stop or two, it takes six hours to get there. Too bad it’s not a bit closer to Atlanta so we could enjoy it more often!
