My wife and I are both new skiiers (I have 3 days under my belt, my wife has 2). We live in Southeast Tennessee and are looking to make a trip for the weekend of Feb 18th (don't really have much of a choice on the weekend).
We were looking at places like Sugar Mountain, Beech Mountain, Ober Gatlinburg, Cataloochee, etc. Does anyone that's been to these places know if they're just going to be so swamped on the holiday weekend that they're not even worth going to? Our first couple of days skiing were on MLK weekend in Breckenridge so we've seen some crowds. Also, which of those places is going to be the best places for beginners?
We'll only be skiing one day most likely (leaving on Friday night and wife has to be at work on Sunday evening) so Snowshoe is probably too far.
