North Carolina's Black Mountain Range probably holds the best alpine snow and ice routes in the Southeast. These routes are huge with 6K+ elevation change, 1 to 4 hour approaches (and descents), humbling bushwhacking, and hundreds to thousands of feet of everything from steep snow to technical ice.
Trailheads and bushwhacking starting points are located off of roads accessed via highway 80 South of Micaville. See routes for specific approaches.
