The Village of Sugar Mountain is a four-season resort vacation land filled with golf and tennis in the warmer months and skiing, snow tubing and ice skating during winter season. Usually just referred to as Sugar Mountain NC, the Village of Sugar Mountain began in 1969 with just four small lifts and only eleven ski slopes. Since then the Village of Sugar Mountain and its many amenities and lodging options have all grown into what it is today: the largest North Carolina Ski Resort and, unquestionably, the most famous ski resort in NC. Anyone who has ever gotten to the summit of the Village of Sugar Mountain— either by riding a ski lift to the very top or by driving and then biking or hiking—will tell you just how awe-inspiring the ocean of vistas and valleys are from atop this magnificent mountain. Sugar Mountain North Carolina sits at an elevation of 5,300 feet and one whole face of the mountain is covered in ski runs and trails. You can see the amazing web of trails easily from Highway 184, the main highway that leads to the town of Banner Elk NC.

The Village of Sugar Mountain NC is a vacation mecca year around with golf, tennis, hiking, biking, horseback riding and other mountain activities available when the weather permits. Annually, the Village of Sugar Mountain hosts the Showdown at Sugar Mountain NC, a NORBA National Championship Event for mountain biking, in May. In autumn when the leaves are changing, the Village of Sugar Mountain runs scenic chairlift rides to the tops of the slopes; this is truly a breathtaking trip! We may be biased, but winters at the Village of Sugar Mountain beat out every other season as the snow guns gear up and the area becomes a winter paradise for skiers and snowboarders. Lift ticket prices depend on the time of week, session and time in the season that you are visiting, but are always reasonable and always worth the price.
