Resting between western North Carolina’s scenic peaks, groomed powder blankets the 22 runs of Wolf Ridge Ski Resort’s 72 skiable acres. The getaway enlists five spacious lifts to service beginning, intermediate, and expert runs and Wolf Ridge prides itself on their minimal wait time (availability is subject to weather and slope conditions, check the website for updates). A freestyle terrain park tests both the grinding skills of adrenaline junkies and the shading skills of cartographers, and the resort’s 100% snowmaking capabilities ensures grassy tufts are always disguised by a layer of shreddable flakes.
Though not included in today’s deal, rental skis ($19), snowboards ($34), and protective helmets ($10) outfit guests with the appropriate gear to ski, snowboard, or hibernate for a full day.
