PRACTICES  - WINTER 2020-21. Snowsports are a way for people to play in wide-open spaces, and to take advantage of the mental and physical health benefits of outdoor recreation. We are implementing operating
best practices for the 2020-21 winter season, or for as long as needed, scaled appropriately in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we move closer to the winter snow sports season we are sure to still be dealing with the impacts of COVID-19.  Please look for these red info boxes on the Ski Sapphire Valley web site and be sure to visit the Resort's main COVID-19 update page here:

If you have ever wanted to experience snow skiing or snow boarding but never had the opportunity, here is your chance at one of the most southern ski areas in the US!

Sapphire Valley North Carolina boasts a Norman Rockwell like setting perfect for families looking for a safe, relaxing ski vacation. Sapphire Valley is nestled in one of the most scenic corners of the Blue Ridge mountains, and is the closest resort to Atlanta offering big city residents their quickest chance for winter mountain getaway.

Sapphire Valley’s ski area consists of a 1600 foot main run with a vertical drop of 200 feet, complete with a state-of-the-art quad-lift, a learning center slope and a multiple lane tube park.
The Slopeside Tavern is conveniently located at the bottom of the slope serving appetizers, lite fare, sandwiches and dinner entrees. The Base Lodge includes a ski clothing retail shop with ski clothing rentals. The small footprint allows families to ski together all day, regardless of skill level, and provides an ideal location  for beginners to take their first turns in an encouraging atmosphere.

You’ll find one of the most economical ski experiences in the region at Sapphire Valley, with a reasonably priced lift-ticket that includes rental equipment.

Beginners are given a priority at Sapphire with top-notch instruction and on-the-mountain guidance from professional instructors. Sapphire Valley has the perfect slope for building confidence on the mountain.
