Seven-Devils is a small resort town located at the 4,000-foot elevation level in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Banner Elk and Boone. It's most well known for being home to the Hawks Nest Golf and Ski Resort Area. In 1965, the L.A. Reynolds Industrial District of Winston-Salem formed a resort on the mountain and began searching for a "catchy" name. People in the region talked of an old mountain man who had seven sons who were "as mean as the devil." Others talked about the mountain being "as cold as the devils" or "as windy as the devils" in the wintertime. There are also seven rocky peaks surrounding the Valley Creek area that stand out predominantly, so finally the colorful name of "Seven Devils" was chosen. Eventually the resort was sold and Seven Devils incorporated as a town in 1979. The town grew but officials worked hard to maintain its' quaint resort atmosphere, and today it's a thriving community with many amenities to offer visitors. Year round activities include skiing, golf, hiking, rock climbing and fishing. Many attractions are within a short distance of Seven Devils, including Sugar Mountain Ski Resort, Grandfather Mountain and The Mile-High Swinging Bridge, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Linville Falls and Caverns. Also, the nearby resort towns of Blowing Rock, Banner Elk and Beech Mountain offer wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants.

Seven Devils Weather & Climate

The High Country in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina has four mild seasons that help support the busy tourist trade. The mountain valley temperatures average 6 to 8 degrees cooler than the nearby Piedmont region in the summer months, and near the mountain peaks, it can be 10-20 degrees cooler. Moist southerly winds are forced upward in passing over the mountain barrier, causing showers and thunderstorms in spring and summer. Due to mild summer temperatures, the mountains have always been a welcome escape from the heat at the lower elevations. Summer nights are crisp and cool, but not too cold for camping or other outdoor activities. Although it does snow in the region, large amounts of snowfall and severe low temperatures are rare except at the highest peaks. Therefore most ski resorts use snowmaking equipment to ensure a reliable supply.
