With winter approaching, let's take a look at where you can enjoy snow sports near Asheville.
While winters are usually on the mild side in the city of Asheville, it's a different story at nearby ski resorts in western North Carolina. Since we have the highest mountains in the eastern United States, you will find plenty of snow, either natural or man-made. Temperatures often run 20 degrees cooler on the slopes than in Asheville, so get ready! If you don't ski or snowboard, go snow tubing.
