Sugar Mountain Resort, Banner Elk

(1.3/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Step outside your door and onto the ski slopes of Sugar Mountain Resort. Ski or snowboard year-round at this resort, located atop several slopes, including Gunther's Way and Oma's Meadow. This site gives you easy access to beginner, intermediate, black diamond, and double black diamond slopes. Pick your path or take classes through the resort, and enjoy the views. You can stay at the lodge or purchase a variety of passes for your visit. The area receives a lot of natural snow, but if Mother Nature doesn't deliver, don't worry--the resort has a snow machine that it uses to help regulate the packed powder.
