Christmas/New Year 2014/2015 Asheville/Hendersonville

We will be staying in Hendersonville for 2 weeks over Christmas/New Year and would like to find some snow - real or man made for some fun with the kids, as well as holiday lights, Christmas lunch and a family orientated New Years Eve celebration. Thank you!

If you don't find snow in Asheville you can drive over to Boone / Blowing Rock / Banner Elk. Sugar Mountain and Appalachian Ski Resort are there and both will have snow, tubing, etc. At the entrance to Banner Elk, if there is snow at the lower elevation there is a small park there for tubing only. We were the 2 years ago and there was plenty of snow. Its about a 2 hour drive each way but makes for a fun day or do an overnight.

There are several ski mountains in the Boone, Blowing Rock areas. If there is no snow, they can make it, if the temps are cold and they usually are. You can drive the BRP, if open. ( depends on weather) or choose an alternative roadway. 2.5 hours, again, depending on the weather. There are many tree farms in the area, if you want to cut your own Christmas Tree.

The best Christmas dinner in the Hendersonville area is the buffet at Highland Lake Inn. Call for reservations. Grove Park Inn in Asheville also has a killer buffet - just a little farther drive.
