Area Information

NC Ski Resorts

Our family's North Carolina Christmas Tree Farm is located in one of the most awe-inspiring regions of the country. The High Country, as it is sometimes referred to, is known as being the "Land of the Clouds" with its high rising mountain peaks and rich wilderness areas. These majestic peaks are also perfect for skiing in the wintertime, and during the cold months of November-March, the High Country region and our North Carolina Christmas Tree Farm receives a great deal of natural snowfall. The powdery snow conditions coupled with the amazing mountain ridges led to the first explosion in Southern skiing, which began in 1962 at Appalachian Ski Mountain in Blowing Rock. Since then, other Ski Resorts in NC have opened in the surrounding region; however, Boone remains the NC Ski capital and is the place that many associate with snow skiing in North Carolina. Why not make plans to visit the High Country region for a quick ski vacation and get your Fraser Fir Christmas Tree all in the same weekend? In fact, many people choose to do just that and come up Friday-Sunday to experience some of the winter fun in the High Country, relaxing on Friday, skiing on Saturday and finding their tree on Sunday, or vice versa. Several ski resorts in the area offer night skiing as well for those that might want to find their tree during the day and get in some skiing at night.

NC Ski ResortsAppalachian Ski Mountain was the first ski resort to open, not only in the area, but the entire state. It is a family friendly resort that is renowned for its atmosphere, easy-to-learn-on slopes, and French Swiss Ski School. Appalachian Ski Mountain offers not only skiing and snowboarding, but the resort also has amazing amenities including an ice skating rink, great ski shop, and small café.


Sugar Mountain is the largest ski resort in the state and the resort where many try skiing and snowboarding for the first time. It offers the state's largest vertical drop and has skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, tubing, and ice skating available for those that are daring. Located right off of Tynecastle Highway (Hwy 184) in Banner Elk, Ski Sugar is a fun place to spend your day.

The closest ski resort to our Fraser Fir Christmas Tree Choose n Cut Farm is Ski Beech Ski Resort. Ski Beech is located atop Beech Mountain, in the town that is named after this infamous peak. Surrounded by gorgeous alpine trees such as beech trees and evergreens, the town actually has the distinction of being the highest incorporated community located east of the Mississippi River, and it is the home of the Beech Mountain Resort area which features golf and tennis in the summer and skiing in the winter months. At Ski Beech Resort you can enjoy not only skiing and snowboarding but also ice skating, snow tubing and shopping and dining in the quaint village located at the resort.

If you are not into skiing, but still want to have some fun playing in the snow, then head over to Hawksnest Tubing Park, the largest snow tubing park in the state. Hawksnest has not 1, but 4 snow tubing areas with multiple lanes that are fantastic fun to sled and snow tube down. Hawksnest is located atop Seven Devils.

Plan to enjoy the outdoors when you come up to find your NC Christmas Tree this season. The High Country is an outdoor adventure land filled with tons of wonderful things that you can do and experience. If skiing is not exactly your cup of tea, then take part in some of the other things going on in the area during your time here. We have included some information to our visitors on things like the ASU Football home games, the ASU Performing Arts Series events that take place during tree season, great places to stay and local watering holes that are famous for their great cuisines and entrées. Plan to come up to Boone NC this holiday season to find a real, Fraser Fir Christmas Tree! Don't buy one of those fake, phony plastic things from a retail store; buy something that will leave your home smelling of Christmas and your family delighted for days.
