  • French Broad Ziplines
    While the Hampton family owns and operates French Broad Rafting and Ziplines, Mitch, Michael, and Korey Hampton have also had their personal share of ups and downs, both on the water and off. At age 10, they began exploring eastern Tennessee rivers with their grandfather, and they followed that passion for whitewater rafting into their business, which had been family-run for nearly 30 years. But then their dream was threatened. A fire swallowed the business, and the family lost everything. Slowly, though, with the help of family, friends, and staff, they rebuilt their company, learning patience and perseverance while finding comfort and strength in the support of their community. Today, in addition to their traditional water-based excursions, the family also takes to the trees on their zipline course. Ripping through the clear mountain air, they've charted mid-air trails for zipline canopy tours that send guests soaring from tree to tree more swiftly than a caffeinated eagle. The course's ten ziplines stretch in distance from 75' to 1000', ensuring the guests have plenty of time to admire their sky-high view of the woods on adventures that also incorporate rappels, short hikes, and a rumbling jaunt on a hard-nosed utility vehicle.

  • R.O. Franks Aviation Company
    For 17 years, third-generation and FAA–certified sky engineer Addison M. Brown has hoisted panorama junkies into the sky by harnessing the power of hot, blustery air. Each morning, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 a.m., he and his team pile up to 8 to 14 passengers into the basket of their giant balloons. Then, firing off the burner, they slowly lift off as the sun begins its own ascent, typically reaching heights from 500 to 2,000 feet. Below them, the rays of the sunrise wash over vistas of downtown Asheville, a patchwork of multicolored crop fields, and the tree-covered backs of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maneuvering with the morning's mild wind currents, they ferry the group over hills and hollows for a 3- to 5-mile float. Upon a gentle landing, the crew celebrates with passengers by offering them a champagne toast and helping them dust the clouds out of their hair. Passengers are welcomed to bring their own cameras or video cameras to document the flight.

  • Winding Creek Stables
    The clopping of hooves echoes across Winding Creek Stables’ wide-open pastures and jumping arena, where a staff of ex-competitive equestrians takes a comprehensive approach to riding instruction. In private and group lessons, instructors share their wisdom about handling and technique while impressing upon students the importance of respecting their steeds. Adults and children alike can pick between the hunt-seat riding style popular at horse shows and the western style, which includes instructions for chasing down robber barons and lassoing feral cacti. Students learn to groom and care for their horses before and after the lesson—a gesture of respect to the animals and a key takeaway should novices desire to advance to competitive riding. Before riding off into the sunset, check out the stable’s other horse-related services, which include pony parties and pony rides.

  • Western North Carolina Home Show
    Since 1976, area merchants and knowledgeable experts from around the country have gathered to swap ideas, inspiration, and advice at the Western North Carolina Home Show. Throughout the Asheville Civic Center, hundreds of local businesses and experts set up booths where they explain the nuts and bolts of their industry, whether landscaping, interior decoration, window installation, or furniture crafting. Meanwhile, speakers present seminars on a wide variety of topics throughout the weekend-long extravaganza, from hyperpractical subjects, such as setting a budget, to more abstract topics, such as the definition and history of green building. Visitors to the show depart with rekindled enthusiasm for projects, as well as an arsenal of facts that give them an edge when vetting contractors or performing standup at interior-design conferences.

  • Ma Belle France
    Though chef Ghislaine Mahler has lived in New York City, Santa Fe, San Francisco, and Connecticut, she will never lose her French accent. A native Parisian, Chef Mahler moved to the States to share the culture, history, and authentic recipes of France with her students at Ma Belle France. During her classes, she walks students through the steps of crafting delicious menu items such as pork tenderloin with reblochon cheese, plum-and-banana tart, and crepes flamb? with caramelized apples. She also uses Ma Belle France as an online resource for Francophiles and those interested in French culture, including helpful books. Chef Mahler also leads foreign culinary excursions to France, which dive into the unique culinary scenes of Paris, Normandy, Dordogne, and other regions.

  • Christine's Cardio Fitness
    While Christine smiles every time a client announces another drop in pant size, she is more proud of helping people lower their blood pressure levels and stabilize their blood sugar levels. Motivating people to transform their health on the inside versus how they look on the outside is why Christine opened her own fitness studio, Christine?s Cardio Fitness. She and a crew of certified Zumba instructors help students dance their way into better health with easy-to-follow routines set to high-energy tunes and yodelers in classes like Zumba Fitness, Zumba Toning, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Step, and Zumba Gold. Not wanting anyone to miss out on the fun of Zumba, Christine also offers a free class on Saturdays for kids during the summer months.
