I you have young kids that you want to learn to ski this is the place. They have a great ski school. Mt is very small but it does not get near the crowds of the other big two.

Great place for beginners, good service. Great staff! We really enjoy the time at Appalachian. We really recommend to take the class if you never ski before you going to need it!

Older ski resort, yet very, very clean and well maintained. Kids had a blast. Jesse our instructor was awesome. If you don't want to ski, stay indoors by the fire. Either way, you can't go wrong. We'll be back.

I would not expect snow that early, it really depends on the temp if they can make it or not. I would look further north like Snowshoe Mtn or anywhere in the Poconos for snow that early...And I would say about 15 miles and... More
