More Ski/Snowboard Options in WNC:

Exciting times ahead for Hatley Point; a resort nestled in the beautiful mountains less than 40 minutes north of Asheville and about 1.25 hours from Maggie Valley.  Formerly known to the locals as Wolf, the Hatley's have acquired the property for a rebrand and upgrade for the coming year.  Wolf was my (Krista) home mountain where I learned to snowboard in 1996.  We are all excited to see the changes and wish them a fantastic season.
