The High Country

The High Country is known as the ski capitol of the south and home to three premier ski resorts, Sugar Mountain Resort, Appalachian Ski Mountain and Ski Beech, all located within an hour of Elkin. The High Country is a favorite destination of families, couples and adventure-seekers. North Carolina has the highest mountains east of the Rockies and the best variety of restaurants, shops, and other year-round attractions of any destination in the Southeast.


Snowboarding owes its beginnings more to skateboarding and surfing than to snow skiing. Over the past few decades, snowboarding has grown from a fringe movement practiced by a handful of young devotees in the backcountry to a legitimate sport with more than 6 million followers and a spot in the Winter Olympic Games. Ski resorts that once refused to open their trails to snowboarders now realize that the sport is big business. Snowboarders now have their own culture, language and style.
