If you have never skied , or have kids that have never skied, this is the best place to go in North Carolina. The ski school for kids is very good and it gives parents a chance to ski while the kids are in the kids program, until they get better. Another advantage is that you can rent equipment there and leave it in a locker over night to avoid standing in line. Plus , since it is small, it is a lot easier to find various family members on the slopes.
They are very good at snow making and I never saw any patches of vegetation showing, even when the snow was melting a little. It is also the most economical ski area.

The disadvantage: if you do know how to ski, the slopes are boring. What qualifies as a black diamond there should really only be an intermediate at the most. The slopes are also very short.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
