Thanks for visiting SkiNorthCarolina.com!

The answers to just about any question that you may be asking, can be found on 
our website.  However, if you have asked a specific question that is not 
addressed on the site, or you have requested assistance that needs specific or 
special attention, we will respond shortly (with a second email).

Otherwise, you will find our most requested questions answered at the links 
Ski Season dates:  Typically, ski season opens Thanksgiving weekend and runs 
through the end of March.  However, over the last few years, resorts have been 
able to open sooner, and the normal closing date is March 31st, depending on 
the weather.

***Special note for this season:  COLD and SNOW is on the way! We cannot predict
whether or not it will snow on specific dates that you are visiting us.  If we 
could, we'd predict it for EVERY DAY!  However, our area DOES receive quite a 
lot of snow during a normal winter, and even when we don't get natural snow, 
the resorts do a GREAT job of creating manmade snow.

***We've had a lot of people ask "how cold does it have to be to make snow?"
Typically, it should be below freezing, however depending on humidity, they 
have made snow at about 38 degrees!

Ski Reports:  http://www.skinorthcarolina.com/skireports.asp 
They are updated AT LEAST once each day at around 7:30-8:00am.  During periods 
that the weather or snow warrants more frequent updates...we do!

Road Conditions: SkiNorthCarolina is THE ONLY Source to find out what the roads 
are like during inclement weather.  Find them at:  

Accommodations/Lodging: You can find lodging links at 

Slopeside lodging is limited so book early.
We have had groups (such as church's and larger family groups ask about lodging 
for 15+ and we have now addressed that question at the link above.
