Winter Road Trip

Feel the need for speed (and snow)? Head to Banner Elk, NC

While March is a time when many seek coastal getaways, there’s still time to head the opposite direction for one last ski trip to the North Carolina mountains.

Banner Elk, known as NC’s ski town, greets skiers and snowboarders with a mix of cozy lodging, great restaurants and the two largest winter sports resorts in the state. Beech Mountain Resort and Sugar Mountain Resort provide a total of 38 slopes, 17 lifts, 16 tubing lanes, two terrain parks, two ski schools and a pair of ice-skating rinks.

Beech Mountain (5,506 feet) is the highest ski resort in Eastern America and features a mountain top ski bar, while Sugar Mountain (5,300 feet) has the most skiable acres in North Carolina and the state’s only double black diamond slope.

Banner Elk is also home to Wilderness Run Alpine Coaster, providing another winter downhill experience, reaching speeds up to 27 miles per hour.
