A High Country GiveawayThe NC High Country encompasses Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, West Jefferson, Wilkesboro, Beech Mountain and the small towns of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Winter in the NC High Country offers plenty to do. Visit one of our three ski resorts or one of the largest snow tubing parks on the east coast. Enjoy endless winter views from the Blue Ridge Parkway while hiking or cross country skiing. If the outdoors aren’t for you, visit a world-class spa or winery and warm up by a wood-burning fire from your cabin in the mountains.
