Old school ski lift - nice people - not crowded runs
The t-bar is a nice throw back to the way you used to get up a mountain. Because Hickory still has this system, not many people go - which is nice for the die hard skiers/snowboarders who don't mind putting some work in to own the mountain. The employees

A bit of a tough climb, but the view is worth it.
You'll climb about 600 feet over a 3/4 mile hike but the view will be well worth your effort. It''s a demanding climb so you should be in reasonable physical condition to attempt it. It's only about 3/4 of a mile up and that much back downhill. Watch your

I was looking for a tour that was not to short but not too long and this fit the bill! Initially, the trip started out a little rough.....I followed the directions and arrived at 1:30 for our 2 PM trip. At 2:15 we were still just standing there with no word from the staff as to the delay. They should have had us getting fitted for life vests, etc during this time but there seems to have been a mistake by the company in managing the time of their customers on this end. So our trip didnt leave until closer to 2:30 which could have been a problem if we had to depart at the scheduled time.However, from there the trip was simply fantastic. Our guide was Dave and he was funny and very helpful in making sure the kids on the boat had a great time! We got to get off and swim and even had splash battles with other boats.The river itself is beautiful and I could have spent another hour out there with no problem!I would highly recomend this company but would suggest you dont get there at the suggested arrival time unless you have something to keep yourself entertained for 45 minutes as there is no cell phone service up there.
