Beginner Skier! [southeast]
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I just started skiing last year, and I only got to go once (Wintergreen). I'm going to Snowshoe this weekend and I'm going to college at Appalachian State next year to be able to ski at App Mountain. Can anyone recommend some good places to learn to ski near or in NC? I'm super excited to get better at it!
Welcome to EpicSki! I moved your thread over to the Beginner Zone.
When you are at Snowshoe, be sure to go over to Silver Creek. A lot less crowded. Plus there is night skiing there. If you aren't staying over there, the shuttle bus works quite well. You will get the most out of the experience if you sign up for a least one group lesson. There is probably a good beginner package available.
Here is the thread that includes NC:
Besides App, the other ski areas close to Boone are Sugar and Beech. Most students end up skiing at night at App. The price is right and it's a great place to learn. The ski school is excellent.
