Winter: (November-March) With an average of 78 inches of snow each winter, we are a winter 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. Go to our Winter Guide.
Spring: (April & May) Our quietest season heralds the beginning of the golf season. Our Sugar Mountain Golf Club reopens. Next door, tennis kicks off. Watch the greening up of the mountains and wildflowers. Go to our Spring Guide.
Summer: (June, July & August) With our cool summer weather with typical high temperatures in the 60s and 70s, 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 Guide.
Fall: (September & October) 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 Color Guide & Forecast.
