My daughter loves to ski at Appalachian. It is a fabulous choice for beginners and those who have some experience. I like that you can sit in the lodge and see all the lifts and slops. The balcony is a good place to watch the skiers.

I learned to ski there as a child and so glad my kids are having the same experience! Very fun and safe environment, friendly staff, excellent ski school, facilities are perfect for the beginner to and to the experienced ski and snow boarder. Great ski shop for equipment, jackets, goggles, etc.

We loved Appalachian Ski Mountain! My family of four traveled there for our Spring Break (3/16-3/20) and had a great time. We did French Swiss Ski College for the kids (7 & 9) and they were skiing well by the end of the 4-hour session. Me & my husband took a group lesson in the morning and afternoon and were... More

This place is our choice for skiing in the area and we have been there numerous times in the past. We were pleasantly surprised this time by thd lack of skiers! When I say we had our private ski mountain I mean private! There were less than 100 skiers all day and all 12 slopes were open. They even gave... More

Great family time. Was not the best ski area I have ever been to. I am by no means a professional and due to my skill level and comfort zone I stick to no more than Blue slopes, which didn't leave me many options here compared to other places I have been. The weather was great, the equipment was good... More

Took my two boys, 10 and 5, for a ski weekend. Skied Friday and Saturday. Highly recommend going on a week day as there are no lines for rentals, tickets and lifts. Friday was a perfect day. The weather was great and the snow conditions were perfect. It only got slushy after 3:30pm. The layout of the resort is excellant... More

We were here last Thursday night and had a wonderful time! All the employees are very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. My thirteen-year-old son took a group lesson and he ended up being the only skier and had a fabulous lesson. Some places would have cancelled the lesson, but they didn't. I was amazed at... More

This would be a great place to learn, but if you're a little experienced and get bored easily, don't bother. The runs are very short.
