January Snow at Sugar Mountain
When I learned that it was snowing in the high country, I headed immediately to Sugar Mountain to see for myself. The temperature dropped 25 degrees from the time I left the house until I arrived at Sugar an hour and a half later. It was 15 degrees, and snowing. Above is a view of Banner Elk Mountain.
Standing beside this windswept frozen lake near Linville Village on the return trip was as cold as it looks. Whirlwinds were lifting dry snow high into the sky.
Yours truly takes a very short walk along the lake. Below is a two minute video showing the actual snow falling. I can’t wait to get back to Sugar Mountain to do some skiing.
