Attention floridians!
 
Ok I have the bug. I'm located in Orlando. Anyone interested in carpooling? There's a small mountain in North Carolina we can get to in 8 hrs. I will drive, we split gas, 2 day maybe 3 day trip? Who's in? Anyone in florida?

I need more specifications before I can consider it; I m located in Orlando about half the time and in Tampa the other so I am right in your area.

What ski resort? How much have you estimated for gas? Any plans for a hotel/price? What dates?

Dates I don't care about. I run my own Buisness and can go anytime.
Gas:: roughly 75-80$ each way ?yea for 4 banger stick shift cars)

Mountain::
Wolf Ridge Ski Resort | Skiing & Snowboarding in North Carolina
((Unless you have a recomendation in the area))

Hotel undetermined.

Eight hours for 17 trails and 700 ft of vert? If you're going that far anyway, have you considered Timberline in WV? Not exactly huge, but more than twice as much terrain and 300 more feet of drop. I've never ridden there, but judging by their trail map it looks like there is some fun terrain.

BTW, I'm originally from Cocoa Beach. These days we consider 4 1/2 hours to Jay Peak to be a long haul! Good luck finding someone to ride with!

I used to live in Washington, but when I got out of the army had to move home for family.

How much further is the drive to wv?
I don't care how far I go, as long as I have someone to split gas with.

Might want to looks at Cataloochee as well, may shave quite a bit of time off your driving. I consider this one of the more dynamic mountains in NC.

North Carolina Skiing & Snowboarding at Cataloochee Ski Area, Maggie Valley NC

If your going to WV, Snoeshow is the place to hit, best riding available for the Southeast but it comes at a price.

Why drive 8 hours when you can fly to Colorado in that time...

If you look hard enough, you can find great deals on flights. I just booked a flight from Indy to Denver for $138 round trip.

I'm spending the same amount flying to CO as I would driving to Snowshoe, WV.
