It has been a busy couple of days for Blowing Rock, from the heavy snow Thursday night to busy slopes Friday night.
"The skiing was great, had great sunshine," said Dax Martin, a skier who drove from Georgia.
"You get to go-sled down the hill and it's very fun," said Brett Page, a snowboarder from Hickory.
Everywhere you looked Friday night there were crowds, a sign this could be a busy weekend.
"We'll see several thousand people this weekend. It's an economic boom for the high country," said Brad Moretz, general manager of Appalachian Ski Mountain.
But if you are going to enjoy the snow, firefighters told Eyewitness News that you really need to be careful.
"This evening we are expecting it to get below freezing obviously and there's a lot of wet spots, a lot of standing water. We're expecting that to be another potential problem," said Blowing Rock Firefighter Jim Landis. "With temperatures above freezing during the day it's going to melt and at night it's going to freeze."
Some skiers say that is a concern that has crossed their mind.
"You can be driving along fine one minute and then you hit that patch of black ice," said Martin.
The fire department is reminding people to drive slowly and safely. It says it has both paid and volunteer crews in this weekend, ready for whatever is needed.
