Wonderful staff and well kept. They have excellent child care for the youngest who don't ski. It's a small resort, which is great for families with children different ages.

We go annually to the Boone are for skiing. Appalachian Ski Mountain is never missed. The lifts are close together so you rarely lose your group. The runs are typical NC. Short and icy. Plenty of parking spots. Minimal fee of $1 for parking.
