The Sky Valley resort originated in 1969 to become the southernmost ski resort community in the United States. Formerly a cattle ranch, the nearly 2,500 acre site consists of a stream valley bounded on the north by the GA - NC state line and on the remaining sides by mountain ridges, some of which reach 4,200 feet. Sky Valley is located in the northeast corner of Georgia on State Highway 246, five miles east of Dillard and Highway 441. Sky Valley consists of privately owned single-family and condominium-type developments, many of which are handled on a short or long-terms rental basis. Besides the ski slope, Sky Valley's other resort features include golfing, swimming, tennis, hiking, and fishing. Sky Valley Resort offers a wilderness getaway with the comforts of home.
