Sugar Mountain Resort is located in the beautiful Village of Sugar Mountain, right off of Hwy 184. Sugar Mountain also boasts the largest vertical drop (1200 feet) in the state. Sugar Mountain is the largest ski area in North Carolina by about 20 acres (total of 115 acres of skiable terrain). The popular mountain offers some great stay-and-play ski packages with area lodging companies. The lodge at the base of the mountain offers ski and snowboard rentals, cafeterias, a lounge, a sports shop, a locker room and a gift shop. Sugar also offers snowshoeing (unique to the area), a snowboarding park that is closed to skiers, and a 700-foot-long tubing park that is fun for the whole family!
Sugar Mountain may offer some of the most dramatic panoramic views from atop their mountain. The ride to the top is notoriously slow, however it is worth every minute as you will experience some of the best views in the region.
Our bed and breakfast Boone NC is just a short distance from Sugar Mountain Ski resort. We offer affordable bed and breakfast style lodging and accommodations. Our historic location receives a fair amount of snowfall, but not so much that you will be fearful to drive to Sugar Mountain. All of the roads to the resort are maintained by state road crews that keep the roads salted for skiers and snowboarders. The region relies heavily on tourism and we want people to be safe while driving the roads, so you’ll usually see many trucks out working if you visit during a time of heavy or rapid snowfall, or other winter events.
