About the Ski Resort

Appalachian Ski Mountain is nestled in the northwestern corner of North Carolina.

Appalachian Ski Mountain opened in 1962 and has since developed a reputation as one of the best ski areas in the southeastern United States to learn to ski.

The French-Swiss Ski College operates the Ski School for all ages and ability levels at Appalachian Ski Mountain.

Skiers may choose between a group lesson or private instruction. They also offer a program specially designed to instruct children ages 4 to 12.

There are a wide variety of lodging facilities in both Boone and Blowing Rock. You can choose from hotels, motels, some franchised and some privately owned. There are also several bed & breakfast facilities in the area.

Since the ski area is only three miles from Blowing Rock and just six miles from Boone, no matter where you stay you are a short distance to the slopes.

Despite being a small area that is geographically isolated by the mountains, there is a delightfully wide array of restaurants to choose from.

The area offers many privately owned and operated fine restaurants, including Chinese, Mexican/Southwestern, BBQ, steaks, seafood, etc. There is also a wide selection of fast food and franchised restaurants.

The ski area is located just two miles off of four-lane Highway 321 between Boone and Blowing Rock.
