Lots Happening at the Resorts this Weekend

Wolf Laurel will open the new Ski Lodge and Resort at the top of the mountain (and the new lift) this weekend…and they have a Grand Opening Planned! Wolf Laurel Ski Resort and Scenic Wolf Mountain Resort will host a GRAND OPENING for the new Ski Lodge and Resort at the top of the mountain on Saturday, February 19th, at 11:30 AM. Congressman Charles Taylor, Richard Lutovsky, President/CEO of the Asheville Chamber, and other commissioners and dignitaries will join them to "cut the ribbon" on a new beginning for one of North Carolina’s top ski slopes. The addition of the new lodge gives the ski resort plenty of room to grow. There is ample parking, a new bunny slope with a 2-chair lift, complete rental and food services and a unique atmosphere in the beautifully designed, rustic lodge. The view from the top is unmatched – one of the most beautiful, long-range views in the Blue Ridge Mountain range.

Rick Bussey, the developer for Scenic Wolf Mountain Resort, is building a year-round family resort at the top, surrounding the new lodge with more than 22 cabins under contruction this year. There are plans for a pool, tennis courts and other amenities making Scenic Wolf Mountain Resort a destination for families looking for a fun, relaxing vacation in the mountains.

Appalachian Ski Mountain – Appalachian only received 1" of snow from Thursday’s snowstorm, but report that they have added 12" of manmade snow across all of their slopes with snowmaking in the last 24 hours.

Cataloochee Ski Area – Winter has returned to Cataloochee and they have received 4” of new snow.
