For 16 years, Carolina Mountain Life Magazine has reflected the heartbeat of the High Country with stories showcasing the people and places that make living or visiting this area special.
We welcome you to join us in celebrating this place, and our people - and hope you enjoy our latest edition, Winter 2013/14. Enjoy stories on the our winter sports resorts in our Ski Season Preview, meet Dee Thomas who is leading an outdoor renaissance at Lees-McRae College, and get to know the microbreweries that are sprouting up here in the HighCountry. You'll also find articles on Simplicity's at The Mast Farm Inn, Theatre productions celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday, forcing spring bulbs, Samaritan's Purse, help for new entrepreneurs, and much more. And don't miss our departments: Book reviews, fishing, birding, recipes, health, personal finance, restaurant guide, wine, and the calendar of events!
