Sapphire Valley Ski Slopes Now open for the 2012 season

The last of the NC Ski Resorts and Areas to open for the 2012 Season, Sapphire Valley Ski, welcomed its first skiers yesterday at noon. The Sapphire ski hill consists of two runs, one each for intermediate and beginner skiers, and features runs up to 100 feet in length with a vertical drop of 200 feet. Beginners receive the personal attention necessary to master the basics of downhill skiing or snowboarding, and seasoned veterans can hone their skills.

Sapphire is skiing today on 2 slopes with 2 lifts and a base of 48-66 inches groomed surface with snowmaking continuing.

The Sapphire Ski slopes are an integral part of a 5,700 acre year around resort nestled in a pristine Sapphire Valley near Cashiers and Highlands NC. Wyndham Resort at Fairfield Sapphire Valley offers Vacation suites which sleep 4-6 with whirlpool tubs, kitchenettes, washer and dryer. The resort facilities include a ski area, golf, pool, fitness center, business center, restauran.
