The Holiday season has finally arrived, and in the High Country of North Carolina, the festivities are just beginning! With three of the most popular Ski destinations on the east coast just a short drive apart, the quaint and old-fashioned downtown areas of Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk draw thousands of visitors to the Appalachian Mountains each year.
Bring the whole family to the slopes this year! Appalachian Ski Mountain is student friendly, open late nights, and offers some of the best ski and snowboard instruction courtesy of the French Swiss Ski College. The Mountain’s Welcome Center is easily spotted along Highway 321, and the snow machines are already blowing. A few miles down the road, Beech Mountain and Sugar Mountain surround the small-town atmosphere of Banner Elk, NC. The elevated resorts have also already opened their trails and lifts, marking the beginning of what will be a terrific winter ski season. Fill your winter days with exciting and snow-filled holiday fun in the High Country!
And when you’re tired from your days on the slopes, join the locals in Boone for a bite at Black Cat Burrito, or sit for a spell at Sorrentos in Banner Elk. The High County offers some of the very best year-round and seasonal dining options for the whole family to enjoy. And when Mom and Dad get some time alone, the Appalachian Mountain Brewery, Booneshine Brewery, and Blowing Rock Ale House all offer unique and distinctive beers brewed right here in the heart of Appalachia.
Along with the undeniably fabulous food and awe-inspiring valley views, the locals of Boone, Blowing Rock, and Banner Elk are some of the friendliest folks you’ll ever have the pleasure to meet. Simply walking down the street guarantees you a wave hello, and an open table can quickly make you a new friend. Once you visit the High County, you’ll never want to leave.
