In the mountains of Western North Carolina, we love our fresh mountain winter air and our variety of available winter outdoor activities! Locals and Visitors bundle up and get out of the house with friends and family to enjoy winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. In Asheville, we do enjoy many clear days of abundant sunshine and often warm winter temperatures which also make it a perfect time of the year to hike, mountain bike, and enjoy awesome aerial adventures like a Zipline or Adventure Park! Whether you live in Asheville or you are visiting the Mountains of WNC to have an outdoor experience, you’re likely to find that the rental lines, lift lines, and slopes at most of our popular ski resorts (like Sugar Mountain, Cataloochee Ski Resort, and Wolf Ridge) are quite crowded this time of year. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds and still have an unforgettable outdoor sports experience, head to the Adventure Center of Asheville!
At the Adventure Center, all of our winter outdoor activities are open on the weekends all winter and are not crowded! We have decreased our maximum guest count for each activity, so we can provide extra space and time to enjoy all of our adventures! And you don’t have to wait in long lines.
