Winter begins on the Parkway
Winter has started on the Blue Ridge Parkway, with some seasonal closures in effect and the first round of snow-related road closures taking place last week.
Mt. Pisgah Inn, Mt. Pisgah and Craggy Gardens picnic areas, and Mt. Pisgah Campground are all closed for the season. The Waterrock Knob Visitor Center will close Nov. 14.
Last week’s cold, wet weather resulted in winter conditions on the Parkway, triggering a complete closure of the road from U.S. 276 through its terminus in Cherokee. As of press time, the road had reopened.

Lmao, it barely gets real winter weather. For someone from new England used to driving all winter, this seems excessive. Could probably hire one snow plow and it's be sufficient.
