This was the perfect first time experience for my grandchildren 8-13. I couldn't get them off the mountain. Next night ice skating and hit Coco by the bon fire. The food is actually good or you can bring your own that have a separate indoor dining for that or eat out on the deck over looking the slopes! It's cold... More

Very well run ski slope, clean well kept. Perfect for beginners with the French-Swiss ski school there.

ASM is not nearly as large as its two main competitors--Sugar and Beech Mountain--but it makes up for this in part by putting great emphasis on slope grooming. If you get up on the mountain when the resort opens during the week you will be able to ski pristine herringbone runs virtually by yourself. However, after ten o'clock or so... More

Always a lot of fun! Love going here. Take the kids and it is always a great new adventure for them. They always have a great time and are exhausted after a day at App Ski Mountain!

This is a great place to ski for beginners and intermediate. Staff is so nice and they go out of their way to help. Shout out to Lauren, Ryan and Jason at the ski school- great teachers! Perfect place to sit on the deck and watch your kids- you can see them go up on the chair lift and come... More

Got in 2 days on the slopes during Spring Break! The kids took snowboard and ski lessons and had a great time! Loved that all slopes could be seen from the deck of the restaurant!

App is the best place to take a family with kids to ski, especially if you have any beginners. The staff are very friendly and always willing to help. They have a great setup and are very family oriented. They have a learning slope, bunny slope and regular slopes varying from easy to difficult. I would highly recommend App Ski... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. We skied for about 2 hours, which was plenty of time to cover everything and have a good time. The conditions were good for the season. I would go back again.
