The second stop of the 2006 NORBA circuit took me to a new venue, Sugar Mountain, tucked in the hills of western North Carolina. As I live in Utah, the idea of skiing at a venue this far south and at only 5300 feet elevation seemed odd to me, but there is a reason why this place is called Sugar Mountain - the sugary snow on the slopes. The new NORBA stop meant a new race course - this one was interesting, with lots of double track and paved climbing and then some "east coast" descending. Watch out for the rocks and roots.
