Winter in The High Country • Skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snow tubing, zip lining, snowshoeing, and sledding. If you can do it on snow or ice, you can do it in the North Carolina High Country. NC is home to some of the highest ski areas in the Eastern US, and winter here brings a time to celebrate in stead of hibernate.
The Blue Ridge National Heritage Area is a place unlike any other on earth, where ancient landscapes enchant the eye and age-old traditions warm the heart. Congress designated the mountains of North Carolina the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area.
