Mitchell, a difficult hike, or enjoy an easier walk up Craggy Gardens. Most hikes end with breathtaking views, and many bypass waterfalls, streams, or historic sites.

Winter in Asheville brings skiing, snowboarding, and tubing at nearby mountains. Some mountain peaks get an average of 60 inches of snow annually, and ski resorts use snow machines to keep powder on the slopes during warmer weather. Hawksnest, Ski Beech, and Sugar Mountain are regional attractions, and smaller hills in Tube World in Maggie Valley are great for an afternoon of tubing.
