With ski season less than 2 months away, we are finishing improvements to ensure that the coming season is one of the best yet! We have added and upgraded snowmaking on our Orchard Run, Big Appal, and Appaljack slopes to provide faster coverage, more base depth, consistency and quality snow conditions throughout the season.

More snowmaking means even better conditions!

Midnight Blast Weekends will now be offered all season long! The region’s only late night skiing & riding will run every Friday & Saturday night the entire 2015-16 season, from Opening Day through our last night of night skiing (March 19), in addition to special Holiday Midnight Blast Sessions over the Christmas Holidays, December 26 through 30, as well as Martin Luther King Sunday and President’s Weekend Sunday.


Discounted Season Memberships and Nights-Only Passes are available online 24 hours a day at  www.appskimtn.com. Purchase yours before October 15 and save!
Our 54th season is scheduled to begin Friday, November 20th, with a projected closing date of Saturday, April 2nd. Night sessions are scheduled to begin opening day, weather permitting. From March 20 – April 2, modified hours will be in effect and slopes will be open from 9am – 6pm on these dates. We hope to begin making snow during the first good cold snap after Halloween and begin ice skating on the day before Thanksgiving.
App Terrain Park will offer over 50 different rails & boxes this season for riders of all ability, including new designs based on rider feedback. The parks will be hosting several custom events throughout the season, including the signature Shred for the Cup series, Ladies Park Sessions, as well as a Boarder/Skier X.
Our 18th Annual Preseason Sale is scheduled to begin Friday, October 16 and continue through Sunday, October 25. Used equipment for the Ski/Snowboard Swap may be brought in weekdays only Monday September 28 through Tuesday October 13 from 9 am to 4 pm.
Our Alpine Ski Shop will be open seven days a week beginning on the first day of skiing or Thanksgiving Day, whichever comes first. The Shop will also remain open every night our slopes are open.

Kenny grew up in Concord, NC, which is right outside of Charlotte. He graduated from UNC Charlotte in December 2010 with a degree in meteorology and joined Ski Southeast immediately thereafter. In addition to his Appnet duties, he helps with day to day operations of Ski Southeast and is also in charge of our sister site, ResortCams.com. In his own words... "I discovered this website a few years back and visit it on a daily basis. I lurked on the messageboard for a while before becoming actively involved and have met some very cool people because of it. Needless to say, I am VERY stoked to be a part of the team and I think I have a unique insight into what people want from the site seeing as I used to be on the outside looking in. I'm sure some people who are reading this have seen me on the mountain before. I am frequently at Beech Mountain and it’s not hard to spot me, as I usually have a camera on my head. I love to document my days on snow and have posted some videos on the messageboard before. If you ever see me out there, feel free to say hey!" You can email Kenny directly at [email protected]
