City Of Sky Valley




According to the United States Census Bureau, Sky Valley as a city has a total area of 3.0 square miles, all land. The elevation of the valley floor is approximately 3100 feet above sea level, while areas within the city limits on the slopes of Rabun Bald exceed 4200 feet. Sky Valley is Georgia's highest incorporated city, and one of the highest municipalities in the eastern United States.


Sky Valley has a temperate oceanic climate, a rarity in the southeastern US, and is due to its high elevation. The city is also one of the coldest locations in Georgia with the January average temperature 34.0 °F (1.1 °C) and the July average temperature of 69.0 °F (20.6 °C).



Sky Valley did not exist as a community until the 1970’s. During the late 1960’s, a group of investors purchased a 2,500 acre cattle ranch in the area and developed the Sky Valley Resort for snow skiing in the North Georgia Mountains. In 1969, the Sky Valley Resort opened as the southernmost ski resort community in the United States with the only snow skiing facilities in Georgia. Sky Valley was incorporated as a city in March of 1978. In 2004, the Sky Valley Resort was sold and the new owners made the decision to close the ski slopes.
