Sapphire Valley Ski Resort - Sapphire North Carolina
Skiing in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Yes there is. Known as one of the best training slopes for skiiers, this two run, mostly man made ski slope is great for anyone just wanting to have fun. Don't worry its not just about skiing, they have plenty of snow related activities to try.
The ski area is made of two slopes: Main Ski Hill which is 1,600ft long and has a drop of 200ft and a ski lift takes you to the top, and the other is the Bunny/Learning Slope with a moving carpet ski lift. Rates and rentals can be found at www.SkiSapphireValley.com
Frozen falls tube park is always a crowd favorite. It is a 500 foot long family friend run with a 60 ft drop. And don't worry about lugging your tube back to the top, they have a moving sidewalk. Make sure to book a reservation because they do sell out.
