The North Carolina High Country is a bonefide winter sports destination. Three regionally distinctive downhill ski resorts within minutes of each other demand more than a rushed, single-day road trip to the slopes.

Those diverse ski areas are anchored by equally unique resort towns. Banner Elk, Boone, and Blowing Rock offer a range of restaurants, diverse lodging, and attractions, that span a price spectrum from luxe to minimal bucks.

Sugar Mountain Resort sits in the heart of the High Country – and there's no better time to ski Sugar or neighboring slopes than the heart of the ski season. Between the Martin Luther King, Jr. and President's Day holidays, there's a sweet spot of snowy, peak season skiing. A midweek ski trip in the heart of the season virtually guarantees maximum excitement, slope time, with ski up to the chairlift convenience.

Sugar Mountain's impressive list of distinctions includes the status of the South's biggest ski area, with twenty slopes and 115 acres of skiing. Sugar also has the greatest virtical drop, 1,200 feet. It's known for professional ski and snowboard instruction, along with the High Country's most extensive beginner terrain.

Sugar's known for massive snowmaking system and meticulous slope-grooming. The region's only double-black diamond expert run-ridiculously steep Whoopdeedoo – requires a cable to guilkd the tank-like grooming machines up and down the slope!

There's as much to do off the slopes as on – day and night. Get giddy souring down 700-foot snow tubing runs. Glide around 10,000 square-feet of ourdoor skating. Take the only resort-guided snowshoe tours in the region – and see why this easy winter adventure is a favorite of families nationwide.

Lodging is diverse at High Country slopes-and Sugar's a good example. Ski right from the door of your guest room, condos, or rental home, near the base lodge, or from the most spectacular summit condo. Or cocoon away from the bustle in the secluded wintry woods.

Just chill if you like, but off-slope options will distract even a couch potato. The surrounding area offers sophisticated spas, winery tastings and tours, hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and a drive up Grandfather Mountain. With options like these – and heart-of-the-ski-season snow conditions – mid-winter is a sweet spot for a multi-day ski trip to the High Country.

Find a wide selection of great lodging choices to suit your needs and budget – all available in the heart of the season at exciting Sugar Mountain, North Carolina. Take advantage of snowy outdoor adventures at the South's best and most accessible winter fun resort – featuring great skiing and snowboarding, tubing park, outdoor ice skating, guided snowshoe tours, lots of wonderful restaurants and that special resort ambiance and hospitality which makes a trip to the slopes the perfect winter vacation.
