The High Country’s First Ski Area

App Ski Mountain is further north than we normally cover in The High South but they do such a great job of making snow they are almost always open in season!

Appalachian Ski Mtn. had its beginning over 50 years ago when Grady Moretz and four other partners purchased the area as a foreclosure in a public auction. The ski area was known as “Blowing Rock Ski Lodge” when it opened in 1962 and officially named Appalachian Ski Mtn. in 1968.

Ski Sapphire Valley Resort started snow making and testing the popularity of southern skiing in 1964! They built a toboggan / sledding run and tested snow making. 

The test was a huge success and a double chairlift and full snowmaking system was installed and fully operational in 1966.
