ski-picBanner Elk is the hub of the ski industry in North Carolina where each winter, tens of thousands of ski enthusiasts from the Southeastern United States flock to the High Country to take advantage of the natural and manmade snow and sub freezing temperatures on our area slopes. The ski season usually starts around Thanksgiving and runs through late March and provides an almost perfect venue for skiing as well as snowboarding at the resorts around Banner Elk. There are three main resorts in the area.

Sugar Mountain Ski Resort

Sugar Mountain Ski Resort is located in the Village of Sugar Mountain and is the largest ski area in the state. The resort caters to more than just skiers as they also offer a great snowboarding park which is dedicated to snowboarders, and skiers are not allowed. They offer a 700 foot tubing park which is great for the whole family and the views from the top of Sugar Mountain are spectacular.

Ski Beech Resort
