I live in a foothills/mountain community in the Sierra Nevadas (Sonora, CA). I plan to retire to the Waynesville/surrounding community because I love living in a mountain community, and I love the pace of mountain people. However, I can live on my retirement more comfortably there, plus having my sister and two brothers nearby (Raleigh, Atlanta,& Panama City) make it a no-brainer.
Things I'd like to know are:
1. What elevation is the snow line, and what communities/housing divisions should I be looking at to be below it in the 300K +/- range (Don't like living the snow!)
2. I may be bringing my disabled (had a stroke and walks with a walker). Are there senior day cares, transportation, other programs/activities? That's
all I can think of for now. Any feedback would be very much appreciated. John

There's no snow line in NC. All of our mountains are too low and too far south for year-round snow cover. The highest point in NC is Mt. Mitchell at 6,684 above sea level.

For the most urban type amenities and services, Asheville (pop. 70K) is the largest city by far in the Mountain Region. Expect a total yearly snowfall of around 15" during an average winter season in Asheville.
