Ski Resorts in NC
Looking for Ski Lodging in Boone NC? Our Boone N.C. Hotels are just a short distance from the great NC Ski Areas in the High Country Mountains.


While there are many ski resorts in and around the area, we recommend Appalachian Ski Mountian.

Appalachian Ski Mtn. has expanded to twelve slopes including two terrain parks serviced by one double chairlift, two quad chairlifts, two conveyor lifts (new in 2010) and one handle-pull lift. The base lodge now covers 46,000 square feet, is smoke free, and has complimentary WIFI in the restaurant. This is the best ski resort to take your family young and old.

Hawksnest Tubbing and Zipline.

Zipping down the mountain now has new meaning at Hawksnest. We have doubled the fun! Recognized for having the largest Snow Tubing Park on the East Coast, we’ve added the longest Zip line Tour as well, featuring 19 cables, four of which are known in the zip line industry as super or mega zips. 

Gliding through the air with ease is trouble-free. Zippers--ages five and up--enjoy the exhilarations of speeding treetop high over valleys having expansive views and threading through the forest canopy over creeks, wild turkeys, deer, groundhogs and the occasional bear. In winter, zippers can yell to their snow tubing friends from way above as they begin their journey. 

Our 20 Lane Snow Tubing Park has four different areas to snow tube; lanes are 400 – 1000 feet long. Our 2 conveyor lifts take our snow tubers back to the top for more rides. Hawksnest has 100% snow making and lighting on all lanes to provide the best possible conditions and fun for the whole family. 

Also, don't forget to enjoy our Coffee Bar, Carolina BBQ and Pizza before, during and after your tubing and zipping sessions!

The joy of a snow sport really starts when you can Ski or Snowboard in control on intermediate terrain. A very high percentage of people try Skiing or Snowboarding ONCE. For the average person it takes 3 times to be comfortable and in control on the more difficult terrain.

Lesson one gets you into balance so you don’t fall as much.
Lesson two is to make the transition to intermediate terrain.
Lesson three gets you comfortable and confident on intermediate terrain.


Benefits of Warm Days
Sunny days are more fun! Put on the sunscreen and get a tan while having the thrill of your life.
Warm Days make the snow softer and slower, perfect for learning or improving.
Wear Sunglasses instead of goggles! Talk and laugh with your friends without having to bundle up to stay warm.
