Far above it all

THIS HIDDEN NORTH CAROLINA COMMUNITY HAS A MOUNTAINTOP GOLF COURSE AND THE HIGHEST PRIVATE RUNWAY EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI.

There’s just something about the mountains. The winding roads, the abundance of nature, the cool, clean air. A private community near the charming town of Burnsville is at the height of North Carolina mountain living. It’s called Mountain Air, and situated atop Slickrock Mountain at 4,919 feet, it’s a fresh breath of air for second homeowners seeking relaxation, comfort and convenience in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Take a peek behind the gates.

SWEET TEE While every golf course has a scenic signature hole, Mountain Air has 18 of them, designed and routed through Slickrock Mountain. Off the course, a learning and performance center features a practice range, climate-controlled hitting bays, a training simulator and a fitting center.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE Located at the top of the community, the Slickrock Village Green serves as the centerpiece of the club, offering a host of amenities along with the finest views in the community. Members and guests meet here, gather here, dine here and laugh here. TAKE FLIGHT In the cool mountain air you can breathe, play, laugh, discover, connect and even fly. Mountain Air is home to the highest private runway east of the Mississippi. For pilots and their guests, there’s nothing that compares to that moment when the wheels of their plane lift off the runway.
