Not so much (time) but we'd had a fair number of people ask about it and Brad Moretz of Appalachain provided a lot of insight and we felt like sharing it.

Thanks for getting this information together. When I lived in New England, it was a fun day trip to try and locate lost ski areas. I didn't realize that there was so many here in the Southeast.



Also, one area not listed in NC was Sheepback Mountain in Maggie Valley. This property was slightly developed with a couple of trails cut and a pond dug for snowmaking. I once rented a house in MV that had an old Sheepback sign in the crawl space. I also had an opportunity to look at a master plan for the resort, that included a tram from MV up to the base of the property. Another example of someone with great dreams and no money.
