Originally a mining town, Sapphire, NC’s cultural foundation runs deep as one of the jewels of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. Alongside its abundance of amenities and activities for the entire family, Sapphire is known for its high-flying ski resort. The area offers all the right seasonal thrills—snowboarding and skiing with two downhill runs, one with a breathtaking 200 feet drop, and a tubing park. Miles of hiking trails winding in and out of the Panthertown Valley can be conquered by the more adventurous, or spend your day with a relaxing round of golf, followed by a pint at The Sapphire Mountain Brewing Company. Sapphire understands that the sparkle of life looks different for everyone, but it should always be enjoyed to the fullest.
