*Weather Permitting

The Sapphire Valley Ski Area & Frozen Falls Tube Park is an integral part of a 5,700 acre four-season resort nestled in the pristine Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

The average elevation is 3,400 feet. Our resort consists of our 1600 foot main run with a vertical drop of 200 feet, complete with our state-of-the-art quad-lift, our learning center slope and our newly expanded, multiple lane, 300 foot snow tubing run. A moving carpet quickly and
effortlessly transports you back to the top for multiple runs throughout each 1.75 hour session. Lift lines are typically short providing quality time for the family. Our learning center slope, with certified instructors and a moving carpet lift, will teach beginners the fundamentals of skiing or snowboarding and students will receive personal attention in a structured environment.

FROZEN FALLS TUBE PARK! Enjoy our 300 foot run with a 60 foot vertical drop, yielding enough speed for “white-knuckle” fun!  1.75 hour sessions are offered, groups are welcome and encouraged to pre-book their outing to secure a time and date. Our “moving carpet” lift and multiple tubing lanes means MORE TUBING! MUCH less waiting in line!

RIDE THE VORDACH!! Winter Zip-Line!! Fly above the snow with the funnest of ease!!
