  • I’ve skied all over the country and picked Wolf Ridge this year because it is close to home and affordable with a family of 6. I know southeast skiing is always going to be icy in spots and crowded on...  more »
  • I realize this is a NC ski hill, but my second visit being worse than the first has made me cross this place off the list. The bunny slope is way too small, narrow & steep for really young kids or beg...  more »
  • Near Asheville, a place where not only the snow, the only attraction. The station has a basic structure, but enough. Great for Tubing and skiing beginners. The path to join the resort is filled with beautiful gardens and lakes, which were partially frozen, a bucolic activity, water mill and a Ski Station off that is a true Ski Museum in the open. Amazing new ride.

  • We enjoyed our time here!! The lodge is basic, but it fulfills the need; you're there to ski or board, not sit, anyway :) :) :) Use caution walking on the black rubber... it was slippery. The hills were nice with some fresh powder, but a few icy spots. We were there Friday morning into Friday afternoon. Hill was great and quiet in the nothing, until just after lunch time, then it picked up. Still wasn't bad, but started to get much more busy, especially with only one lift running. Still VERY HAPPY and will DEFINITELY be back. Easy access from the highway, but I did NOT like the walk in from the parking lot-- Long walk with a bunch of stairs.
  • Boy Scout Troop 218 spent 2 days skiing at Wolf Ridge. We were treated like family and not a number . All employees are friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. Group sales has the sweetest group of ladies in their office. Food at the grill was awesome. Mark sure knows how to feed a group of boys. Rick, co-owner could be seen helping everywhere that was needed. Prices are great too. We'll be back next year to SKI THE WOLF!!!
  • I am not an avid Skier in fact my leg was bothering me too much to be able to ski while there so this is not a review of the skiing facilities. We did however tube. Not the hill at the resort but the one at the bottom of the mountain and it was fine. Ok so the lodging. Rented a townhouse but had issues. When you go in looks great with the pine and the contemporary design. However it was a dust bin! Dust on the fridge, fireplace, pictures and the ceiling fans were caked with it. Upon inspection of the air intake the filters were completely full and clogged. Gas fire place is great but when got to hot turned on those ceiling fans (one time) and set everyone off sneezing. Did not feel secure for several reason: First the front door lock was a bit loose and second the back sliding glass door lock was broken and could not be locked. Area seemed safe except for the fact that several people were living out of their small truck pickup camper top and car in the parking lot. Not sure if these were guests of someone else there or worked there. Did not leave a sense of being secured at night with them outside and the sliding glass door not being able to be locked.
  • Wolf Laurel is a good NC ski resort with a 750 foot vertical drop. Weekday special is equipment and lift ticket for $40. Ski conditions were excellent the day we skied with a 55" base, packed powder and 26 degrees. There were less than 50 skiers there in the morning so we really had the place to ourselves and skied every slope. 8 minute lift ride for 3 minutes down but it's still skiing...better than working. Dry county and dry resort so byob and be discreet. We usually picnic outside on the deck but food prices are reasonable in the lodge. Avoid on holiday weekends due to long lift lines and the presence, on the slooes, of every area Yahoo who never skied before.
  • This is a nice small resort. We went snowboarding. When we went they were making snow but it didn't effect us much. Just a little icy in spots. I only used the beginner runs. Four total. Two are bunny slopes with magic carpets. The other two were great for learning how to snowboard. The lodge has decent food but is pretty small. It was very crowded in the lodge the whole time we were there and it was hard to find a place to sit. Overall it was a nice place but the price was kind of high for the size. As a begginer there was not much to choose from.
