If you’re looking for a great skiing location to use as a home base this winter, visit Lenoir & the NC Foothills.
Here in Lenoir, you can create your very own après ski experience – on top of great skiing, there are tons of excellent breweries, coffee shops, and dining options to make your experience unforgettable.
