Stay in Boone. It is like 30ish minutes away from the various slopes? I am not sure on the exact distance. Boone is where Appy state is so there are tons of bars and hot women. You can also hit up App or Beech since they are all close to Boone.
AWESOME... just the kind of direction I was hoping for. I'll make some calls for where to stay. Any hotels / condos you might recommend (or stay away from)?
