Be Sure to Enjoy the Last Few Chances for Midnight Blast Sessions at Appalachian Ski Mountain

If you are like most of us, you relish the opportunity to ski or board virtually alone, without the usual high visitor traffic that you might see on the weekends and holiday periods. We like skiing during those times too, of course, because we just LOVE snow, but as most know, it’s hard to really let go and enjoy the ride, so to speak, on busier days when you are slightly worried about the person in front of you taking a big spill. Some of the best times to ski have always been in the early morning (for those lucky enough to get out and make first tracks you know exactly how great the conditions can be!), and late at night when there are just not as many people out there on the mountain. In the past, some of the North Carolina Ski Resorts have offered Night Skiing and even Twilight tickets. Those that can remember when Hawksnest Snow Tubing Park was a fun local ski area can probably recall the fun times on the weekends when Hawks offered Twilight sessions—MAN, we miss those! Well, if you are like us, and want to get out on the snow anytime you possibly can, especially in the off times, late night skiing is offered at App Ski Mtn.

This ski season, Appalachian Ski Mountain has been offering Midnight Blast Weekends on Friday and Saturday nights since December 26th. These sessions are always a big hit, and the last two weekends that Midnight Blast sessions will be offered are fast approaching. The team at App Ski Mtn intend to only offer Midnight Blast sessions until Presidents Day (February 20th), so don’t miss your last few opportunities to get out there on the snow late at night. On the Midnight Blast Weekends the Friday and Saturday night hours are extended and the North Carolina Ski Resort doesn’t plan to close until midnight on these dates. Those looking for the best bang for their buck can check that off their list and the timing is actually very convenient as the session time is perfect for those just getting off of work or school looking to enjoy the rest of the day by hitting the powder. General Manager Brad Moretz recognizes that App Ski Mtn is very convenient to skiers and boarders in big cities such as Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston Salem, High Point, Hickory, and Gastonia and this offer is perfect for those looking to come up for a short time to enjoy these fantastic conditions we’ve been having as of late. As of this season, Appalachian Ski Mountain is the only ski area in the southeastern states to offer late night skiing sessions, and we love them for it!
