Description 

a small unincorporated community along North Carolina highway 106, southwest of Highlands, North Carolina and northeast of Dillard, Georgia (about halfway between the two), and nearest to Sky Valley, Georgia just to the south-southwest. It is in far south-southwest Macon County, North Carolina, in Flats Township, close to the Georgia and North Carolina state line.------ Scaly Mountain community terrain is more like a large hill than a mountain, and was used for skiing until early 2004 (formerly "Ski Scaly"), until it reopened in December as a weekend snow tubing venue only. Nearby Sky Valley Resort also ceased being the only ski area in Georgia around the same time, due in large part to repeatedly warm winters since the mid-1990s, unlike the 1970s and 1980s in and after which they were founded
