Heading North for Snow

I posted this over in the Florida section and someone suggested I post it here as well.

I'll be heading North either late Friday or early Saturday looking for snow with my daughter (14 yrs old). We are getting a wild hair and getting out of town. Looks like it ought to be a good week for it. WEather report at this point says snow is coming. Hopefully it stays true. Heading towards Asheville/Boone area. Anyone got any good ideas of where to head? Will be up there until the 23rd or 24th and then heading back to Ocala for Christmas. I might try to hit a trail or two on the way back. I'll be around Ocala, so will try to hit hardrock on Saturday or Sunday before heading back to South Fla.

Good luck, sounds like a blast!

For a guarantee you'll need to go a lil further. Maybe Winston-Salem or up into VA.

Well, I ended up making it up to banner elk, nc and ski beach and found more snow than I expected. Has a blast and survived the journey and am now on the way back to Florida. Here are a couple pics of the snow.

Yeah. We survived and have been back in Ocala for a couple days. The daughter had fun and got to see more snow than she expected. Me too btw! I found out one thing I didn't know could happen, my brakes froze. I drove through some snow and left it packed in the tires and woke up the next morning and it was frozen solid. I had to take the shuttle to the ski lodge that day. I took a screw driver and knocked out all the snow and ice and by that afternoon it was all good and working. Lesson learned.
