It seems like the winter weather is here to stay. YAY! I’m glad it’s cooling down and if you’re into skiing and/or tubing, you’re probably glad too! Tubing is something I’ve never done on snow, and I would really like to try. I have gone skiing and it’s definitely not my thing. Of course, I’ve had three knee surgeries so I’m skiing isn’t the sport for me. LOL! If you love to frolic in the snow, Charlotte Five has a list of five awesome North Carolina ski resorts that aren’t too far of a drive.

Most ski resorts in the North Carolina mountains open in mid-to-late November. Though significant amounts of snow may not fall when the season begins, temperatures fall enough to make weather conditions ideal for skiing, snowboarding, tubing and more on artificial snow. If you enjoy any or all of those activities, here are five places to check out this winter.
