About Us

Why Shop at Ski Country Sports? Ski Country Sports began in 1983 in the mountains of North Carolina. We are located across the street from Sugar Mountain Ski Resort in Banner Elk, NC and within a 10 minute drive to Beech Mountain Ski Resort. Our roots were humble, and we’ve grown since then, but our vision that drives us is still clear: to provide the best outdoor gear in the world and to be the best at doing it.

All Mountain Skiing is redefined.
Whether it’s high-speed groomers, choppy crud, icy steeps or tight trees, Völkl engineers have dialed in the tailored technologies on the new Kendo 88 and Kenja 88 to create the only ski you’ll need.
Drop in to Ski Country Sports and check out the Kendo 88 and Kenja 88, along with our full selection of 2022-23 Völkl skis.

Ski Country Sports is the largest independent ski and snowboard rental operator in the South. With over 2,500 sets of the latest skis and snowboards; we can handle large groups as well as small families.
