The Magic of our Mountains Challenge


Hello you amazing humans! I took the time to meet with some dear friends and successful outdoor enthusiasts. I blindly challenged them to explain the Magic of the Western North Carolina Mountains within one simple quote. I must say, I am blown away by the results that these successful enthusiasts came up with on the spot. Please check out their responses below! It is simply mind-boggling to see how well one can truly preform when asked about something they love!

 

 

“When it comes to the great outdoors, Western North Carolina is a mecca. It’s hard to find a place that you can have world class boating year round while also having access to fantastic fishing, several skiing resorts, and breathtaking hikes.”

"I grew up in the city and never really understood the virtue of the outdoors until I decided to move to Western North Carolina in 2014. Since that exact day, my heart can’t seem to let go of these gorgeous mountains."

    Dillon,

    What a cool challenge! That is a great way to not only remind people about why they love Western North Carolina, but it also seems to be a good way for you to do some research and gather some content for your business. When you are selling retail, you want to make sure your products and design are appealing to your consumers. So why not find fun ways to learn what your consumers like?!

    I have been in Western North Carolina for about 4 years now and it is beautiful. I grew up near Charlotte and went to UNC Chapel Hill where I got to experience the Chapel Hill/Raleigh/Durham. As awesome as those cities are, it is hard to beat the calming vibe of being in the mountains. To piggy back off of Stokes’ comment, driving on the parkway at times makes you forget you are even in North Carolina.

    Hey Dillon,

    There is certainly some magic to our beautiful Appalachian Western North Carolina Mountains, I went to visit Lake Toxaway this weekend to tour for a potential wedding venue, on the way back to Charlotte, we went by WCU’s campus to see the new development, drove through Sylva, and then went down the Blue Ridge Parkway towards Brevard. The scenery is simply amazing and breathtaking, there is nothing like it, and you almost forget you are in North Carolina for a bit, especially when you are 5500 to 6000 ft elevation. I think the environment and elevation of our mountains have some natural healing elements to them as well. Our NC mountains are unique and one of a kind.

    Best,
