I'm sure they would answer all those questions for anyone willing to buy the place.

More or less than with their ziplines?

Now the town needs them and it's a little late to want anything out of Hawks. The Nest could be the best place in the High Country if they had been giving the chance.



Glad I hit the place before it closed.

A tear forms whenever we get natural snow. I can see the slopes from where I live.

Drove up to Hawksnest on Labor day to check it out. What a shame that skiing is now longer allowed. Looked like a fun little place to ski, especially for beginners.

Hawksnest was my favorite, taught there for a number of seasons. It had a great local base and the bar upstairs was always packed from about 4:30 on.

In my youth I enjoyed their late night runs. It is a sad loss for the area, the beginner, and the youth of WNC.

The Hawk was the first placed I learned to ski and snowboard. I really miss the place. It was that hidden area that all the locals went when all the other resorts were crowded with the ski tourists. I check every year hoping they were going to make a ski comeback, even though I know better.
