nc ski resortsWhile North Carolina draws tourists by the millions to fall foliage tours around the Smokys, the Tar Heel State also packs 'em in during the winter at top ski resorts located in the Blue Ridge Mountains for a full November-April season of skiing and snowboarding fun.

The largest of North Carolina's ski meccas, and arguably the most popular, is the Sugar Mountain ski area.

A two-hour drive from either Ashville or Charlotte gets winter sports enthusiasts out on the slopes.

With a total of 20 runs on 115 acres of skiable terrain, Sugar Mountain features a beginner area, snowboarding terrain, snowshoeing and tubing parks, along with a 10,000 square foot outdoor ice skating rink. For a quick weekend getaway, vacation packages include lodging, lift tickets, equipment rental and even lessons for the entire family.

For more skiing superlatives, try Ski Beech Mountain Resort which boasts the highest resort on the East Coast offering 15 slopes, terrain parks, snow tubing, ice skating, and good eats at four restaurants and cool shopping at the Alpine Village.
