Hi, I was just wonderdering if anyone has stayed at any resorts in Mars Hill during June or July. We're thinking of taking a trip to NC this summer and would like to stop at a resort there for a few days, but we're concerned that it might not be warm enough around mid June for swimming. I read that the average high is around 65 degrees at that time. A little too cool for swimming. Any comments? Also, is it generally quite a bit cooler in the Mountain region than the Piedmont region? Thanks!

That temperature is waaay off for the Mars Hill area in June and July. Mars Hill is only 2,100 feet above sea level. Expect normal highs in the low to mid 80s for that period of the summer.

Temperature - The most important single influence contributing to the variability of North Carolina climate is altitude. In all seasons of the year, the average temperature varies more than 20 degrees Fahrenheit ( F) from the lower coast to the highest elevations.

I've never stayed up there, but I have been skiing there several times.

The elevation of Wolf Ridge is ~4390 feet. Here's a page containing a graph of the weather from last June. You can follow to the July data.

JUNE 2007
Average High: 80.0
Average Low: 56.6

JULY 2007
Average High: 76.5
Average Low: 58.3
