I've skied at all the NC resorts except Beech Mtn. I didn't dislike Wolf Ridge but it was a little let down. First the pros: -Easy access. Right off I-26. Nearly all interstate from Aiken, SC -inexpensive. Much less than Cataloochie and less than most other NC resorts. -Eagle-Broadway is a great green trail that's interesting and long. -Lodge -...

We took our family skiing here today after our local school system cancelled for the second day in a row due to snow and ice. Although this is a smaller resort, it was perfect for our ten year old beginner skier who was skiing for the first time. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I love... More

Came without any expectations and enjoyed very much. The youngest got her first lessons and disappeared for the whole day, mastering the tracks. Staff was very friendly justifying the "southern hospitality" reputation. We loved the big roaring hearths and the pine smell from the burning logs. It was crowded, noisy and boisterous and we loved every minute of our stay,... More

Badly in need of snow.Weather has been so warm even in the mountains, that snow making couldn't make skiing good. Two lifts ,but only one running . Too small for an above average skier.

We hope you will give us a try again when winter hits in the Southeast and we have more terrain open. We were grateful to have at least some trails open for people to play on during the 50 degree, rainy weather over the last couple weeks. If you visit again I think you will find our resort offers some... More

Grill, rentals, lift operators, instructors, ski shop....entire staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Smaller resort with decent number of slopes. Great resort for kids/teens and adults that are not "pro" skiers. Parking could use some improvement. It was a bit warmer this weekend, so lots of mud. A turn-around /drop off point at the lodge would be good since parking... More

Snowed a pretty good amount day before we came so the slopes were in good shape. A lot of people out for President's Day weekend but the staff seemingly kept everything organized and moving well.

My son & I enjoyed our outing here, and were actually surprised by the decent size & variety of the slopes, but there is some room for improvement. In no particular order: 1) The quad lift is too slow, as lift lines on a Saturday were pretty bad. This should be a high speed quad since it is the main... More

Staff was extremely friendly, from grill, to ski shop manager, to rentals. Small resort but conditions today made this the perfect place to ski. Very reasonable rates!
