The Mountains Come First

Mountain Air has a history of honoring the land on which it sits.

From the very beginning, its vision has been to incorporate the mountains into every experience. The incredible views, the old growth trees, the natural slopes, and the ever-present forest mystique. A vision that began with the Banks and Young families – whose roots in Yancey County run several generations deep – and continues today with Mountain Air’s extended family of Owners and Members. And while the setting is unarguably beautiful, we believe the mountains offer more than natural splendor and higher elevations, it offers a unique way of life. An authenticity and camaraderie that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s not easy to explain, but it is immediately understood upon your first and every visit to Mountain Air.

If you want to be up high but still close to everything, then Mountain Air is the ideal place for you.

Mountain Air is a unique community that offers peace and quiet, but it’s also a great starting point for all kinds of activities, art and culture, music and special events. From quaint mountain towns to the eclectic vibe of ever-popular Asheville, there’s plenty to do, but you’re never far from home.

The Sky’s the Limit

Pilots and their families appreciate the ease of access provided by the 2,875-foot runway on top of the mountain, making this a true fly-in community. This convenience provides flexible work and travel opportunities. While Mountain Air is a fly-in community with its own runway, nearby regional airports provide ready access to national and international travel.
