Although families outside the region don’t often think of North Carolina as a snowy playground, the area gets about 60 inches of white stuff annually and boasts four ski areas within a half hour’s drive of Boone. In fact, Ski Beech is the highest ski area on the East Coast. To cap off Boone’s appeal, families enjoy more personalized attention, fewer crowds and lower prices than they typically encounter at major ski meccas.  If snow-capped fun is not your cup of tea the area host several winter festivals.  Make sure you finish your winter get-away in the the blue ridge mountains by visiting one of the many Christmas tree farms and choose and cut your own Fraser Fir.
