Why Stay on Sugar Mountain for Blue Ridge Vacations?
We are the perfect base camp for the best of the High Country things to do and see in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our beautiful Village of Sugar Mountain covers a mountain filled with plenty of trees, cascading creeks and spectacular views. Each season brings plenty of fun:
Summer: With our cool summer weather with typical high temperatures in the 60s and 70s, you can escape the heat while enjoying plenty of outdoor adventures: mountain biking, golf, tennis, hiking, waterfalls, whitewater rafting, ziplines and more. Or relax with a picnic, scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway or a rocking chair on the porch of your rental home or condo. See our Summer 2020 Guide.
Fall: The crisp autumn weather arrives in September with those big blue skies – prime time for hiking. During the entire month of October, watch one of the longest leaf color shows in the country. The first colors of the season are found with our views of adjacent Grandfather Mountain. Don’t forget the festivals! See our Fall 2020 Guide.
Winter: With an average of 70 inches of snow each winter, we are a snow and winter sports wonderland. At our Sugar Mountain Resort, find the largest ski area and the longest vertical drop (1,200 feet) in the North Carolina mountains. With skiing, snowboarding, tubing, ice skating and snowshoeing, there’s fun for the entire family. See our Winter Sports Guide.
Spring: Our quietest season heralds the beginning of the golf season. Our Sugar Mountain Golf Club is public and welcomes all. Next door, tennis kicks off. Watch the greening up of the mountains and wildflowers during May.
