Winter Activities

Boone area ski resorts offer more than just skiing. There’s also snowboarding, sledding, snow tubing, and ice skating at various resorts and parks. The largest snow tubing park in the Southeast is nearby, too. After a fresh, natural snow, get in some cross-country skiing on your own, or sign up for guided snowshoeing at Sugar Mountain Resort. Winter is a great time for fishing or horseback riding, too. From beginners to experts, everyone will find lots of exciting things to do during winter in Boone.
