The Sapphire Country**
Come discover the fun of winter sports in Western North Carolina. Ski Sapphire Valley offers skiing, snow boarding and snow tubing. Scaly Mountain offers snow tubing and ice skating! 
 
If you have ever wanted to experience snow skiing, snow boarding, snow tubing or ice skating but never had the opportunity, here is your chance at some of the most southern winter sports 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.
Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center
Scaly Mountain is in full swing with our Winter snow tubing and ice skating! Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center was proud to be the first to open for outdoor snow tubing in the nation this season. Check the calendar below for variable open times through March. You do not need a reservation with groups of less than 20 people. It is first come first serve. We do not turn anyone away. Lines can be long but not overwhelming. Try to get in as early as possible or some time after 3 pm to avoid the large rush on the weekends.
Join us for some good ol' downhome fellowship around our firepit or while zooming down the snow hill or across the ice rink!
