This was my children's first skiing experience and they had a blast. I feel the slopes are well laid out for different experience of skiers. One thing I would recommend is to make sure everyone in your party is aware of the ski lift ticket check procedure and pay attention to each person style of checking tickets. Each person is... More

My wife, 9-year-old son, and I just spent a couple of days skiing at Appalachian Ski Mountain, and I'm glad for the opportunity. We live only about a 3-hour drive away, so this gave us an opportunity to get in some skiing when a longer trip out west would not have been possible. If you are like me and grew... More

Have been here about once or twice a season for the past few years, mainly out of habit and it's the closest slope to our home. Each time, I leave thinking it's time to try somewhere else. I'm not a skier so can't really comment on the ski facility although my family has fun out there. I'm only commenting as... More

Excellent facilities, very organized to rent equipment and deliver them, the cafeteria spacious and comfortable, with a fireplace that kept the place warm. The attention of their employees very good! It really is a mountain that we will definitely recommend and on our next trip we will go again!

We've been to this ski resort twice and enjoyed it very much both times. There wasn't much snow in December though they made snow and it worked fine for most of the slopes. When we went in February there was lots of snow. There is something for everyone in terms of ski level and the place is located in a... More

I'll start off by saying I was here in the absolute peak season. That is on me for sure, but this place was so jam packed it was literally shoulder to shoulder from the time I arrived to the moment we left. We got here about 2 in the afternoon. Thank God they had rental clothes for the cold. Good... More

We went here for the day, rented some gear and paid for lessons. For a few people it was well over $200 but a great experience. The instructor was very good and patient with the young kids. Skiing is definitely harder than I thought and we will be back at some point to try. The cafe and gift shops are... More

We stayed in Boone for New Year's Eve weekend. I am not a skier but we saw multiple ads on websites and this event featured in the local magazines to come here for New Year's Eve for fireworks, ice skating, bonfire, skiing, food and torch-skiing show before midnight. It cost $5 to park, which was fine. However, when we got... More
