WARNING: Appalachian Ski Mountain engages in DECEPTIVE MARKETING PRACTICES! Since my kids have been begging to see snow (we live in Florida) I decided to take them to a ski resort in North Carolina after our visit to friends in Georgia. Being on a tight budget I looked at rates and saw that I could save money by buying half-day lift tickets. Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain both had half-day tickets (as do all the ski resorts I ever remember skiing at when I lived out west). Appalachian Ski did not, but their 2018-2019 rates brochure said that they had a “4-hour early return option” and that if you return to the cashier before the four hours were up they would give you an App Ski Mtn. debit card. Since we were visiting a friend in Boone and Appalachian was closer, I decided to take my kids there. After renting ski clothes first I’m about to buy the tickets when I am informed that I do not get any money back when returning my gear within four hours. Instead I get credit that is good for lift ticket and ski rentals only! Since I’m 45 minutes away from the other ski resorts and I’ve already rented the clothing (and had no extra time) I was stuck! I bought the tickets and let my kids learn how to ski. As far as customer service goes, I felt that their method of enticement on a half-day option was very deceptive. When the standard practice of MOST other ski resorts is to offer half-day tickets why does Appalachian Ski Mountain offer debit cards and then make them usable ONLY for use for their lift tickets and rentals?!!! Even if I could have used the debit card in the cafeteria or the gift shop it would have helped! Not very customer friendly. I’ll never go their again!
