Biking trails intertwine throughout the Village of Sugar Mountain and up the mountain looping back to the Lodge. Trails are open and free of charge from dawn until dusk.
Lift rides are available weekends ONLY: July 4th through September 2, 2007, lift operation hours are 10am - 5:30pm. For bike riders, specially made hooks on the backs of the chairs carry your bike to the top. Just hand your bike to the lift attendants at the bottom of the Gray lift, jump on the chair and enjoy the ride. The attendants will hang your bikes on the hook, and when you get off the lift another attendant will get your bike down for you, either at the 3/4 station, or at the top.
Cross Country Course- The cross country trail is fast, fun, and punishing. Climbers will enjoy the opening run up Little Nell and Main Street Trail. Descenders have to hang in for the technical Cakewalk and Tunnel sections on the harrowing front side descent. The full loop is about 6.5 to 7 miles. You have to earn the view up top by climbing roads and singletrack up and past the Big Red lift to descend back to the Lodge.
Downhill Course- A rugged downhill course descends from Sugar Mountain’s 5,300ft peak and offers technical and rocky terrain dropping back through the Donovan’s Dungeon and Lizard‘s Lane combination. Newton’s Corner and Erich’s Gap offers some drops. The Hahnenkamm section will give riders plenty of long rock sections. Return to the bottom and take a lift ride back to the top for another run.
Helmets are required. First aid stations, bike washes, restrooms, and concessions are available at the Lodge area. For more info or to call ahead and check conditions: (828)898-4521 or www.skisugar.com
