Sugar Mountain Ski Resort
Sugar Mountain is the largest ski area in North Carolina by about 20 acres (total of 115 acres of skiable terrain). Sugar is located in the beautiful Village of Sugar Mountain, right off of Hwy 184. Sugar Mountain also boasts the largest vertical drop (1200 feet) in the state.
The popular mountain offers some great stay-and-play ski packages with area lodging companies.
The lodge at the base of the mountain offers ski and snowboard rentals, cafeterias, a lounge, a sports shop, a locker room and a gift shop.
Sugar also offers snowshoeing (unique to the area), a snowboarding park that is closed to skiers, and a 700-foot-long tubing park that is fun for the whole family!
