Skiing in Western North Carolina

Here at The Highlands at Sugar, each season brings with it something spectacular to enjoy. Spring’s cool temperatures and beautiful blooms make it a wonderful time to enjoy the stunning scenery that abounds in the NC Mountain Region, summer’s blue skies and pleasant temperatures make it the perfect season to participate in outdoor recreation, and the blazing colors of the falls leaves make autumn in the mountains virtually indescribable. If it were possible to pick a favorite time of year in the NC High Country, though, we would probably choose winter. Our winters could not be more ideal. We get just the right amount of snow—enough to sprinkle the ground with a light dusting of powder, but not so much that our lives are completely disrupted. The Banner Elk Ski Resorts Near Boone NC are some of the most popular on the East Coast, and winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world flock to the Ski Resorts in NC to take advantage of our superb slopes. Lucky for skiers and boarders, our Sugar Mountain Lodging is within 5 minutes of the state’s largest ski area, Sugar Mountain Ski Resort NC.
