Scaly Mountain

  Although Scaly mountain only has tubing at the moment it's still a fun place to go, especially of course if you have kids. But it's fun for the grownups too. Says Carlos.

This ski area has a much lower than average part of demanding runs and a much higher than average part of green and blue ski trails. Scaly Mountain has the biggest drop from top to bottom for 35 miles. Scaly Mountain gets lower snowfall than the local average every ski season. This
    ski mountain boasts 6 feet of good snow every winter, and that keeps the coverage good. Scaly Mountain is a small ski mountain with a cozier than average drop from top to bottom when compared to other mid Atlantic ski areas. This
ski resort has 10 runs, and they are tremendous. The snow blanketed peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains make for a nice vista. With a 225 foot vertical drop it's not the highest hill there is, but Scaly Mountain compensates for it with other things. In winter the Blue Ridge Mountains is a nice skiing or snowboarding destination. There are 4 ski lifts here, and they make for a relaxing ride up the mountain. Having 12 acres of skiable terrain, it's very pleasurable  
and small-size. Scaly Mountain is a good ski hill for everyone with a lot of easy slopes. This ski mountain has a rather humble selection of ski trails and not many lifts. Getting a nice workout and getting out of the house for a while outdoes anything. Heaps of skiers voyage up here from Seneca, specially on the weekends.
