Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Sapphire Valley offers the area’s finest skiing facility, boasting a state-of-the-art quad lift, a learning center slope and newly expanded, multiple lane, 500-foot snow tubing run.
Just above 3,400 feet elevation, Sapphire Valley offers a 1,600-foot main run with a vertical drop of 200 feet and a 500-foot snow tubing run. And now, Sapphire Valley Ski Area offers a moving carpet to quickly transport you back to the top of the slopes for multiple runs throughout each 1.75 hour session.
Unlike most ski areas where they’re jam packed with people, lift lines here are short so you spend less time in line and more time having fun.
Don’t know how to ski or snowboard? No problem. The Sapphire’s new learning center slop, with certified instructors, will teach beginners skiing or snowboarding fundamentals. A low student to teach ratio ensures every student will get personal attention in a structured environment.
After you’ve hit the slopes, the cozy base lodge has everything you need. Relax by the fireplace, dine at “The Four Seasons Grille”, or shop at the ski clothing retail shop.
