If you have never skied before, you can go to Appalachian Ski Mountain, and they will rent you absolutely everything you need, including ski bibs, goggles, helmets, gloves, and jackets ( not to mention the full line of ski or snowboard gear, including boots, skis or snowboard, and poles). We were there, apparently on the busiest day of the year, and it was very chaotic, because it was so crowded. But, after a lesson for the kids, they went from knowing nothing about skiing to successfully skiing in about two hours.
For avid, advanced skiers, you will probably find this ski resort pretty small, as far as runs and trails. They do have several levels of ski runs, and some hill jumps and rails for those who like to do snowboard tricks.
The one downside which was really frustrating, was that there was really very little comfortable seating for those people who were not skiing. The top floor of the lodge has school cafeteria type tables and folding metal chairs for seating. Outside there are picnic tables. There is also a small ice rink which we didn't try. I don't believe this resort has tubing, unlike some of the other nearby resorts. Parking is $1 to get in. Overall, the kids had a blast and said they would definitely like to come back. It's a great place to try skiing and very family friendly
