With temperatures well below average and an increase in snowfall this year, the ski enthusiasts have to be pumped. That means they’re probably not in Knoxville since ski slopes are rare in this city.
But if you wanted to find some fresh pow-pow, what would be the best ski slope to visit in the Knoxville region?
Despite your tagging this entry with Ober-Gatlinburg, it’s definitely nowhere near the top of the list locally.
If you go snowboarding once or twice a year, it’s probably worth your while to head up to Snowshoe, WV. They have the most slopes, and most snow in the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic.
But if you go more often, try Cataloochee (aprox. 2 hrs drive) or Ski Beech/Sugar Mtn/Appalachian Mtn (aprox. 3 1/2 hrs drive).
As an Appalachian State University graduate, I have many, many days logged on the Boone-area slopes. All are great on non-holidays and weekdays. Weekday nights will often give you the run of the place.
The image in this post is Ober which is why I tagged it that way. All roads lead to Ober, right? Ha.
Good suggestions. I think we’re headed to Beech or Sugar since Snowshoe is a haul.
