With the spring-like weather pattern Asheville is experiencing this winter, one would think that skiing and snowboarding would be a bust. However, Cataloochee Ski Area and Wolf Ridge Ski Resort are open for business and have been blowing snow to build up a strong base. Some slopes are running daily, and both resorts have night skiing available.
For people who aren't too keen on snow sports, snowtubing is a great alternative. Tube World opens this week over at the Cataloochee Ski Area. Another option is Wolf Ridge Ski Resort which opened a second snowtubing course just this year.
