Reviewed 7 January 2010

If you want really good skiing then you need to go out west. However if you are in the Southeast and don't want to get on a plane this is a good option. After reading the reviews I was very concerned I made a terrible mistake. Sugar Ski & Country Club are condo's that are owned by individuals. So every condo has a different decor. The one we stayed in was a two bedroom. It was clean, had hot water, right on the slopes, and the kitchen had all the essentials. One thing that bothered me was you could not use the washer and dryer-only in the summer. Did not quite understand that. Not a big deal since we were only staying 3 nights. They must of made some management changes. Melissa at the front desk was very accommodating and nice. Tory who was the girl who worked the Ski Shack. She was knowledgeable and the prices were the exact same as they were at the base of the mtn. The downsides are as follows: 1) Extremely loud being at the top of the mtn and listening to the snow machines all night. 2) If you are good skier it is great to leave your room and go down the mtn. However if you are not a good skier you or have small children you have to drive down to the base. You can only get lift tickets at the base of the mtn. 3) There was a lot of snow that had fallen and they did a great job keeping the roads clear. However since we did not have 4-wheel drive we had to pay $150 to have a local shop put chains on our car. In a nutshell if you are a fairly good skier and don't have kids, this is a good place because you can go right on the slopes. If you have kids and don't like noise it is better to stay at the bottom of Sugar Mtn.

Accommodations were comfortable - very southern, eccentric decor. Good views and slope access. Resort shows its age in places.The pool and sauna area left something to be desired. Would recommend, especially for cash strapped college students

Ski rental shop in the lobby would have been convenient except that the owner is a shameless grifter. Rent at sugar mountain instead. We could tell he was peeved when we declined the daily charge for rental insurance. Sure enough, on returning the skis he assessed us $15 dollars for a 'scratch' he found. We went and checked it out - the skis had no more than the normal wear and tear from a dozen rentals - no 'damage'. We told him we would dispute the charge.

The credit card bill came and the jerk charged us $20 instead! He just makes up prices as he goes along. Avoid his shop - Sugar mountain offers better equipment and better service, plus it's right by the ski area so you don't have to haul everything around.

SugarSkiCondos, Manager at Sugar Ski & Country Club, responded to this reviewResponded 25 February 2011

Sugar Ski & Country Club is pleased to have partnered with Ski Country Sports for the 2010-2011 ski season. This professional outfit has been in business for 25 years and offers some of the best ski and snowboard rentals on the mountain. Also, for the first time, day lift tickets are being sold in limited numbers from our ski rental shop in the Sugar Ski Clubhouse. We are delighted the shop is fully staffed and open on the weekends to further make Sugar Ski your one stop lodging choice for skiing at the Sugar Mountain Resort.

I just returned from a picture perfect weekend getaway at Sugar Ski. I stayed in #434 which is right on the Red Slope at Sugar Mtn. Ski Resort. The view was fantastic as was the overall experience of staying in a condo vers hotel room. The decor of this unit was very inviting and reminded me of being in a country cottage. The appliances looked brand new and the furniture was very comfortable. My Son had the time of his life and I can't wait to get back up there!

We booked with the onsite persons at staysugar.com for unit 623. We booked a king but when we arrived it was actually 2 twins pushed together. The furnishings were rough but that was OK. What was not Ok was unsanitary conditions and false advertising that it was a king. We found blood on the mattress and the beds stunk! Screen door was broke required full effort from grown man to move it. When we complained both the maintenance and housekeeping staff came up and agreed with us. We did not hear back from the rental front office so my wife called again and they were nasty with my wife. So we left and will not ever return to the area ever. The overall community of ski & country is pretty run down. There were ants and bugs crawling around the pool area. you could say that it is the community and our unit were the areas that that paint has forgotten and time has beaten up on.

Loved staying here. The buildings are all individually owned so we rented ours through a local rental place. Its right at the top of the 'Big Red' slope and the ones we always stayed in you could walk out the door and on to the slope.
