Appalachian Ski Mountain

As usual, Appalachian Ski Mountain spent most of the summer improving the resort for the 2014-15 winter season. App Ski Mtn. purchased or refurbished more than a dozen snow guns to provide a deeper and more consistent snow than ever before. This winter, patrons of the Blowing Rock resort are in for a real treat when you include improvements to the freestyle terrain park and ice skating rink and renovations to the lodges. See you on the slopes!

ICE SKATING

Appalachian Ski Mtn. offers an outdoor ice skating arena as the perfect complement to our slopes. Located in a spectacular scenic setting overlooking the ski slopes on one side, and the Blue Ridge Mountains on the other, the outdoor ice arena has a refrigerated ice floor, is fully lighted for skating under the stars seven nights a week and is North Carolina’s only Zamboni maintained ice rink. Skaters and non-skaters can watch the action and warm up by our rinkside bonfire. We offer skate rentals in traditional figure skates, as well as hockey skates. Ask about group rates and birthday packages. Individual and group lessons are also available by appointment, call 1-800-322-2373 or email for details.
