Ski resorts?

None travel via RV to a ski resort? I'd love to take my family skiing, but we are in NC so it will be a drive anywhere there is snow. We are worried about snow driving. Thoughts? And if there are ski resorts on the East Coast that offer RV sites?

Anywhere there is snow skiing, you are going to have mountains, which means the possibility of having to drive on steep, snow covered roads. Pretty scary in my book!
However, the better resorts will have plows out pretty early on, if the state hasn't already. So driving in bad conditions, while possible, isn't guaranteed.
Snowshoe Mountain Resort

10 Snowshoe Dr, Snowshoe, WV · (304) 572-1000
is one of the more popular resorts in our area, though there is also Winter Place Ski Resort in Ghent, WV and Canaan Valley Ski Resort.

Whitaker Campground is only six miles away from Snowshoe in Cass, WV and Watog State Park is 14 miles away.

Near Ghent, you'll find many nearby campgrounds, including Camp Creek State Park, Pipestem Resort State Park, Rock Ridge Resort, and Pipestem Country Campground.

Canaan Valley has the Canaan Valley Resort State Park, and Blackwater Falls State Park.

I don't know where you are in NC, but there are several ski resorts/areas in NC that are really nice. The Sugar Mountain area of Boone/Blowing Rock is pretty nice and an additional bump to that is that in downtown Boone, they have a public park for kids 12 and under for sledding. They do snowmaking and some of the stores rent the sleds. My kids love to go and we try to take them a couple of times each year. There is a nice KOA there in Boone.

I have personally driven a 2650 to go skiing. Took it from Calgary over to Banff. Skied Lake Louise and then Sunshine over a 3 day period. There was no major snow storm while I was there, but there roads were pretty snow & ice covered. The weight of the unit and the dually wheels made it pretty stable. I was never worried.
