Westmoreland Ski Resort ***Indoor in NC***

Are you guys aware of the plans for this?

NC Ski Resort

I received an email stating that progress has been slowed due to the economy, but they hope to have better news by spring.

Look at the specs... it includes an 'extreme' area with terrain park and pipe, as well as the usual freeride areas.

I was stoked when I first learned this and I still am... just hope the project isn't completely halted!

Lol whats funny is the most exciting thing on that page i read about was their housing..
Quote:
The resort villages surrounding Westmoreland Ski Resort have approximately 3,300 exclusive residential condo units; many of the units will have ski in/ski out access right onto the slopes! Larger than their European counterparts, these condos sport custom appointments like inside equipment storage, gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, 9 foot ceilings, hot tubs and balconies with wonderful mountain views, with an average floor space of 1,198 square feet with a balcony/terrace. Larger and smaller units are available depending on individual desires.
That sounds sweet..be awesome to wake up wander out the door and be on the slopes...

Indeed it would... surprised more people on the forum aren't interested in this.

I'd definitely be a regular here, if not just buy a place there... hmmmmm.

How you like that SL-R? I've been searching for deals on them, but haven't found anything great yet.

I love it to death, im probably just an average intermediate rider working my way up the ranks but i love the board well worth every penny. Especially on powder days(like tommorrow) you just float. One of my favorite times other than powder is choppy stuff, because nobody really goes through it much on the sides, and the SL-R just mows through it If i can get enough speed i can just skip across the tops..

I live like ten minutes from there.Don't hold your breath on this ever getting finished.I think that is the same site of the failed race track, drag strip ,hotel , and cabins.Long story short and millions later they were left with nothing.but if it comes that would be awsome.Cataloochee ski area is only about 15 minutes from that site and they have awsome snow making tech. check out their website. They will be open into April.

Another NC head, huh?

I just hit Sugar Friday... slow slush during the day, but it was decent at night.

Regarding the indoor goodness, I'm just gonna be optimistic and say, "there's a first for everything..."

No, but I have been to Maggie Valley. My mindset is always to go to the bigger mountains, so it's always Sugar or Beech in NC.

How is it?

Oh, and I'm in Charlotte.
