What’s more romantic than going on an adventure together? Whether you’re starting out brand new, or are an experienced skier/snowboarder there is nothing quite like the thrill of the slopes. Going out and getting cold while gliding down a slope, coming in and getting warm by a fire. It’s ideal for a couple’s getaway. There is also romantic dining, spa experiences, natural splendor, and more right here in Blowing Rock. 

Blowing Rock is home to Appalachian Ski Mountain, a family-friendly ski destination.

They also have an ice skating rink, so if you want to glide around the rink holding hands with your loved one, we support that decision! If soaring down a slope sounds fun, but snow tubing is more your speed, try Hawksnest. It’s close enough to Blowing Rock to go for the day. Better yet, try your hand at all three!
