When most people think of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, they think of snowy winters and mild summer temperatures. Though most of North Carolina tends to have a humid climate, the High Country is considerably drier and cooler in the summer than many other parts of the state. Its climate is more like that of New England than that of the South, with up to three feet of snow in the winter and average summer temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. Many High Country residents do not even need an air conditioner, as temperatures top out in the mid-80's.
The different seasons hold different attractions, so the optimal time to visit depends on your choice of activities. The spring is excellent for hiking, as flowers and trees are just coming into bloom. Starting around April, rivers begin to melt, making for exciting rafting, kayaking and New River Canoeing adventures. Fishing in one of the calmer streams is also a popular activity. There are few mosquitoes and other summer pests here, which is a bonus for outdoor sports. The fall brings some wonderful foliage in late October, which is also harvest time, which means the town bursts out in a celebration. As winter sets in, ski resorts open. Slopes are generally open from Thanksgiving to March, making for a long season of winter fun.
