Older ski resort, yet very, very clean and well maintained. Kids had a blast. Jesse our instructor was awesome. If you don't want to ski, stay indoors by the fire. Either way, you can't go wrong. We'll be back.

We chose to test our kids interest with skiing by signing them up for the skiwee school. The website noted ski school began at 9:00am and when I called to reserve space for the kids they confirmed it started at 9:00am. We arrived an hour early to register and gather our rental items. Upon registration we learned the ski school started at 10:00am. That was a disappointment because we had to kill an hour with the kids. The weather outside wasn't great outside so we stayed inside while we waited for ski school. The building smelled like sweaty socks, it was extremely hot so we had to take off all of our gear while we waited. My husband and I attended the one hour ski class and had a very good instructor (sorry don't remember his name). The staff on the slopes were so, so. For the most part everyone was helpful. Overall the kids enjoyed the ski school and had a great time.

Great family fun for the money! The staff is wonderful and our instructor was fabulous. At no time did we feel rushed or pressured. We sprung for the private lessons. Worth every cent!

Appalachian Ski Mountain is a very family friendly resort. Small and quaint. You can pretty much see the whole mountain except for the very top when walking up or when on the restaurant balcony watching family and friends . Easy to keep up with the kids. Excellent for beginners big and small and young and old. The parking lot is easy to get to. There are no steep hills to climb which is great when you have your own equipment. They have carpeted changing rooms which are great. Lots of items in the gift shop. You will not leave there empty handed. Can purchase pictures of yourself on the slopes to show friends and family back home. The ice rink is at the entrance and has a canvas roof for rainy and sunny days. All in all a great place for the family.
