HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010 is here – this is major cause for celebration!  It’s time to pack up the car and head to the mountains of Western North Carolina for a marshmallow-roasting, snowboard-n-skiing, scenic-viewing, snowman-building, family-friendly good time! Aside from our year-round bounty of great places to shop and dine, Silver Creek Real Estate Group has compiled the following list of fun-filled events and happenings on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau for the month of January. We’ve even put together a directory of great places to stay while you’re on the Plateau – please click here (link to accommodations page). Once you’ve been inspired by the natural splendor and simply stunning change of seasons to purchase that one-of-a-kind family retreat in North Carolina’s beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Silver Creek brokers are ready and eager to help you. Simply give us a call at 828-743-1999, send us an e-mail at info@ncliving.com or drop by our offices located just west of the Cashiers Crossroads in the Shoppes at CreekSide. We hope to see YOU up on the mountain soon!

January 1-31 Sapphire Valley Ski Slopes and Frozen Falls Tube Park are open for the Winter Season!
Enjoy two exciting hills – a fun “bunny” hill for beginners/intermediate skiers and a main run of 1,600 feet in length featuring vertical drops of up to 200 feet that is ideal for the brave at heart. Grab inflatable tubes and go sledding  with the entire family on a thrilling 500 foot run. For more information, visit our “Ski the Slopes” blog. (link to Ski the Slopes blog)
