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!

One of our favorite spots to ski. Prices are fair and the value is good. Season extends into late March and is less crowded then. But even in the busy season it is a great place to ski. They have a restaurant onsite, put also have an indoor area for picnicking. Ski French Ski school onsite as well.....get lessons for... More

We traveled all the way from Nashville and stayed in Banner Elk; looking to ski at Sugar Mtn, but they had NO SNOW! It was about to be the WORST trip ever, until we were told about Appalachian Ski Mountain. They have their OWN Lake & make their own snow LONGER than anyone in the area. Great staff all around:...

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.

We chose to test our kids interest with skiing by signing them up for the skiwee school. The website noted ski school began at 9:00am and when I called to reserve space for the kids they confirmed it started at 9:00am. We arrived an hour early to register and gather our rental items. Upon registration we learned the ski school... More

Appalachian Ski Mountain is a very family friendly resort. Small and quaint. You can pretty much see the whole mountain except for the very top when walking up or when on the restaurant balcony watching family and friends . Easy to keep up with the kids. Excellent for beginners big and small and young and old. The parking lot is... More

I had not been skiing in a few years so ASM seemed like a good way to ease back in. The check-in and rental process was efficient and I was on the slopes in no time. Maybe it was because it was a weekday but the lift lines were usually empty. Up and down until I was worn out! The... More

We had two decent to good skiers and two beginners and all had a blast! They had all the slopes open despite the mild winter and everything was much cleaner that the condiitons we witnessed at nearby Beach mountain. They are a smaller property and that makes it easier for them to keep making snow and grooming the slopes. We... More
