Settled in Wolf Ridge Resort, a four season mountain near Mars Hill NC, Wolf Ridge Ski Resort has fantastic views to match their well groomed slopes.

Located right off I-26 at Exit 3, just a short drive from Asheville, Wolf Ridge NC is a place that most people do not think about when they are considering which NC Ski Resort to visit.
