Did You Know We Have Great Skiing in North Carolina?

In case you did not see Jim Cantore from The Weather Channel during winter storm Diego, we got about 20" of beautiful powder and have three ski resorts in our area plus a huge tubing park. 

Winter is upon us and that means it's officially ski season! The High Country is home to some incredible resorts. Our ski resorts offer skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, and even snow tubing! We've picked out a few of our favorite things about each one. 

Appalachian Ski Mountain

Appalachian Ski Mountain is known for its family friendly vibe.  The French Swiss Ski College is one of the best in the state and offers daily group lessons, private lessons, and the SKIwee Childrens program. App Ski Mtn has expanded to twelve slopes including two terrain parks. They also offer a refrigerated outdoor ice arena for ice skating. Not only does App Ski offer great slopes, they also offer a Bavarian-style ski lodge packed with amenities for skiers and non-skiers.  The location is very convenient, right between Boone and Blowing Rock and less than 2 hours from Charlotte.

Beech Mountain Resort

Beech Mountain Resort is the highest ski area in the east at a peak elevation of 5,506 ft. Beech Mountain also one of the highest average snowfalls of any of the High Country resorts. Ski Beech offers 15 slopes, seven chair lifts, and a variety of terrain for skiing and snowboarding. In addition to the slopes, there is a 7,000 square foot refrigerated outdoor ice skating rink. Beech Mountain Resort also hosts fun events for all ages, including their New Year's Eve Family Night and their Retro 80's Weekend.

They also offer the largest amount of advanced trails and a new state of the art 6 person high speed lift, allowing skiers to get more runs in on their varied terrain. Sugar also offers activities for non-skiers, including snowshoeing, ice skating, and tubing.
