uh, you're not just east...you're as southeast as you can get. I don't think there are any resorts south of yours. I lived in mtns surrounding Chattanooga for 3 years and it only snowed one time that was deep enough to be any real fun.
Haha after I graduated we got 8" on Signal Mountain in Chattanooga. I hiked that bitch and rode it. I am pretty sure I am one of the very few people that can say they snowboarded down signal.
