The South’s most concentrated cluster of ski slopes tempts the entire region with winter activities like skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing & sledding, and ice skating.  We suggest you bundle up in multiple layers as high and low temps can vary during this season.  Hats, gloves, and scarves are recommended too.

Due to our varied elevations, we have a late spring compared to other non-mountain destinations.  March can still be cold enough for us to have late-season skiing well into the month.  April starts the warm up, but it is typically May before we get our spring blooms and the trees have their new leaves.  You will want to pack a sweater and jacket.

 March  High – 52  Low – 29
 April  High – 61  Low – 37
 May  High – 69  Low – 46
