Have you been cooped up in the house for a while? The colder months make it challenging to find exciting things to do. Luckily, Chris Bainbridge has another excellent location in Mars Hill, North Carolina, that shows you how to embrace the fun of winter.
Wolf Ridge opened in 1969 and is the closest ski slope to Asheville and Johnson City. The rustic lodge overlooks the slopes, offering guests three stone fireplaces with a large viewing area of the slopes. You can find goggles, gloves, face masks, and other essential items at the gift shop. The rental shop provides a quick and efficient process to get the gear you need.
You can always pack an Ingles picnic for a fun alpine tailgate. However, if you want the full lodge experience, the cafeteria-style grill offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.
The Snow Sports School is a perfect place to start your getaway because it offers private ski and snowboard lessons for ages as young as five and group lessons for ages eight and up.
For the skiers and boarders out there, this place offers three lifts to four different slopes. The slopes range from beginner to advanced. And don’t forget the tube run, which is located just half a mile from the slopes.
Wolf Ridge is an absolute blast for all ages. Plus, it’s the best way to play in the snow for all kids, young and old. If you want a fun and easy way to get from the base to the top, try the Magic Carpet, and enjoy a view of pure snow-covered happiness from 350 feet in the air.
No company does family fun better than Ingles, as you can see by the many things they sponsor in the community. And there’s an Ingles just up the road in Mars Hill, so you can stock up and fuel up for the drive home. So, whether you’re snowboarding, skiing, or tubing, you’ll enjoy your ride on the Wolf and the beautiful winter season.
