North Carolina and Snowboarding

Hey guy's i'm new :-) I went to snowshoe last year with 10 of my buddys. It was my first year and I caught on quick, prior experience in skateboarding and surfing has helped. Now this year I have my own board and gear and I'm willing to go snowboard the heck out of myself, i'm actually overly stoked for the season. Now the problem is I have me and 2 buddys willing to go damn near evey weekend now I dont think I'm going to make a 7 or 8 hour drive to Snowshoe or Canaan every other weekend... Is there any "decent" places I could go thats 6 hours or less?!

Short answer is probably yes, but what part of NC are you in?

In NC you have sugar, beech, cataloochee, app(which is mainly parks), Wolf Creek. Banner Elk has three places while Maggie Valley is where Cataloochee is. Also Cataloochee opened in October last year.

Is cataloochee all manmade snow? I watched a vid on youtube from their site and it just seemed packed very hard?

I've always wondered about places to ride in NC

Now I lay me down to bed, I pray the lord for pow to shred.
And if Its waist deep when I wake. Epic lines I vow to take.

Depends on where you're located in the state, but obviously all the places are in Western NC. Sugar and Beech are the only ones I'd make a substantial drive for if you're in the piedmont or coastal areas. If you're close to the mountains already Cataloochee is worth checking out when they're open to the top, but definitely Sugar and Beech are going to give you the longest runs.

Depends on what you want to ride... the smaller hills step their park game up to make up for the lack of size.

I have a season pass to Sugar because it's the largest and I wanna be able to ride more than the park.

R3BEL, if you move to NC or even if you simply visit, let us know in the Southeastern thread... we'll ride .
