Resort Reality for rentals on Sugar Mountain. We stayed at the Reserves, our unit was like home. Everything you need to cook in with the well stocked kitchen. Unit # 25C. Recommend it highly.

We skied Sugar today -- at least our nine-year-old daughter did. She loved it! Instructor Randy was very, very good with her and she opted for another lesson after her first hour-long lesson. Ultimately she skied for several hours and then he made sure she could get up the lift by herself when she said she was ready. The ladies... More

We attended both days (as soon as the rain stopped) and had a great time. The band does a great job of entertaining the crowd. The beer was cold and the food was hot. We had the Knockwurst plate with German potato salad. I prefer my potato salad hot, but I also know how tough that is to hold in... More

Beautiful resort...We did not stay there but most likely will next time we go to that area....Golf course was beautiful , in great shape and quite challenging. Too bad we ran out of time...Would have loved to play it again!

We had a blast snow tubing. The lanes were well maintained. The magic carpet made it very easy to have plenty of rides. We came with children 5 and 3. They loved it. The workers were helpful. Very enjoyable.

My boyfriend and I went to the slopes at Sugar Mtn back in February and had a great time! It was 80s weekend at the resort so everyone was in bright colors and 80s style gear/clothes! They also had different events going on throughout the weekend that made it even more fun. I think they create slopes for all levels... More

We vacationed at Sugar Mountain during a mid week, late February. For a south east resort, Sugar Mountain trumps all! We are both instructors at another location and what I appreciated most about Sugar is that they have their ski / snowboard school completely separated from the rest of the slopes. Having a separate instructing yard is important in getting... More
