Things to do on a weekend - End the year dancing and skiing

Appalachian Ski MountainIt appears 2011 will end much as it began - with slopes packed with snow and go! A recent cold snap finally hit the High Country this week, allowing guns to go full bore on the area's three ski slopes. It appears the New Year's Eve weekend will be the first big ski weekend of the season.

It coincides with the traditional New Year's Eve celebrations, including fireworks atop Appalachian Ski Mountain and Sugar Mountain Ski Resort. There's also torchlight skiing and moonlight ice skating. Oh, and dancing. Lots and lots of dancing, as one list of entertainment outlines.

Dance it up, dine it out, drink it down – the High Country is the place to be on New Year’s Eve.

2011 is about to go on the shelf, and 2012 is on target to start out well, thanks to the numerous events being put on by restaurants, bars and resorts.

Only the High Country can offer something cold (snow), something hot (fireworks) and something cool (moonlight ice skating) to end and begin a year.
