I am thinking of taking my kids up to sled in Hendersonville today because the snow down here in Greenville is melted. Is there still enough snow on the ground up there to sled? If not, does anyone have a recommendation of somewhere to sled in the Asheville area?

just did some research, moonshinemountain.com seems to be a nice place for tubing. I think I would call them directly, if I were you.
I am sure, they have snow machines, too.

Probably late in answering your question for 'today', but Maggie Valley has a couple of likely candidates, and these 2 spots will keep their snow longer due to elevation, and they make
snow on cold afternoons and nights. Not next door to G'Ville, but closer than Banner or Blowing Rock or Boone.

Don't waste your time in Hendersonville; not much here and temps going into the high 40's and low 50's, with that old snow removal tool; rain.

Maybe further north near Mars Hill, Wolf Laurel, etc. Keep checking the weather. Especially check the Asheville newspaper. www.citizens-times.com

Late but still pertinent.

Hendersonville's Moonshine Mountain does have snow machines and will have snow probably through March. Don't know what QuilterChick's agenda is but Moonshine Mountain has been a draw for several years now and it really quite fun. Even if you don't do the tubing, they have cozy fires built with benches you can watch all the action and there is a lot of action! I would suggest calling if you are coming from Greenville only to make sure it is not a)raining or b) snowing again. It could be a little treacherous getting to Moonshine Mt. if it snows again. It is kinda off the beaten path.
