With its 1,200-foot vertical, Sugar Mountain Resort is the largest ski area in North Carolina, and one of few resorts breaking a 1,000-foot vertical south of New England. The mountain offers skiers and boarders 20 trails and 8 lifts spread out over 115 acres. But there is more to this premiere tourist destination than just screaming, snow-covered peaks.

Sugar Mountain also provides its visitors with an array of ways to get outside and enjoy the beauty of the High Country.

One attraction in particular is the summer lift rides on Sugar Mountain. On weekends, weather permitting, visitors can ride the ski lift to the 5,300 foot peak of Sugar Mountain. The 40 minute round trip ride features a spectacular view of the High Country and runs from July 4 to Labor Day weekend.

If heights aren't your thing, Sugar Mountain can also be seen on foot. With numerous trails that wind throughout the Village of Sugar Mountain, you can see both the brilliant greens of the summer as well as the vibrant reds and yellows of the fall.

The trails of Sugar Mountain are not just for those on foot. Many bikers choose the Village of Sugar Mountain for its variety of challenging and picturesque terrain.

The Village of Sugar Mountain also gives tennis and golf lovers an opportunity to enjoy their favorite sports in the beautiful mountain setting. With Sugar Mountain's golf course, six fast-dry clay courts and full service tennis pro shop, visitors will never be faced with the problem of finding something to do.

And then the snow comes again.

The lower mountain features graceful, gentle terrain; perfect for lower intermediates and beginners. The summit, however, will surprise even seasoned experts with several narrow, expert trails sporting 60-percent pitches. For snowboarders there is the well-groomed terrain park with a fun box, tabletop, spine, quarter pipe, rail slide and a brand new lift.
