David McManus, snow making supervisor at Sugar Mountain Resort, checks a snow gun on the slope Tuesday afternoon.
Snow and strong winds battered the mountains as a result of Superstorm Sandy. But some benefitted from the storm like Sugar Mountain Resort which will open to the skiing public earlier than it ever has, October 3st. Employees at the resort were in full preparation mode on Tuesday October 30, 2012. John D. Simmons - firstname.lastname@example.org JOHN D. SIMMONS — email@example.com
