Sugar Mountain Resort

The resort's mile-and-a-half run from the top is one of the region's longest runs with a drop of 1200 vertical feet.

Sugar rises from 4,100 feet to more than a mile high. Two double chairlifts whisk skiers to a jaw-dropping summit view from Tennessee to Virginia and on to Grandfather Mountain and Mount Mitchell.

Take in that big picture perspective on the popular North Ridge and Switchback intermediate slopes. A brand new, major slope runs from here all the way down to Easy Street! From there, Upper and Lower Flying Mile whisk you to the base lodge to complete that mile-and-a-half run. On the way, Sugar Slalom lies off to the right and the mountain's surface lift-served terrain park veers off left.

Expert options start at the top, too. Go left from the summit lifts, where Tom Terrific and Boulder Dash plummet off the face. Take a right, slide through the "Experts' Only" gate (if you dare)-and plunge down Sugar's steepest, longest drop-North Carolina's only double black diamond-WhoopDeDoo (Click here for a Sugar Mtn. Trail Map).

Across the lower mountain, intermediate Big Birch is a nice warmup with its own triple chairlift. Real beginners have a conveyor lift beside the ski and snowboard school, another of Sugar's strong points. Easy Street is an entire separate area of beginner slopes with its own double chairlift. Higher up at mid-mountain, the rolling cruiser, intermediate Big Red, is also set off with a separate double chair.

Ski Sugar 

Sugar's festively-lit lodge has everything in one place, including a cafeteria, lounge, ski rentals and the Sugar Mountain Winter Sports Shop. The lodge also offers the mountain's guided snowshoe hikes for adults and kids, the only such offering in the Boone area. This newly popular outdoor activity is perfect for the family. Snowshoes are included in the fee. Come see why snowshoeing is exploding in popularity.

Sugar Mountain also offers tubingice skating, and an annex of its winter sports shop, all near parking lot D, site of the summer golf course.
