Beech Mountain, NC 28604
Beech Mountain Resort is the highest ski area in the Eastern U.S., with a peak elevation of 5,506 feet.
It has 16 trails – including two terrain parks – on 95 skiable acres serviced by seven lifts. The resort’s ski school has programs for young and old, beginner or advanced. Snowboarding instruction is provided by an on-site Burton Learn-to-Ride Center.
A unique aspect of Beech Mountain Resort is the alpine village at the base of the slopes. The village is home to ice skating, snow tubing, a two-story ski lodge, craft brewery, ski rental shops, outdoor fire pit, snack bar and a souvenir store.
Beech Mountain has some of the widest runs in the High Country of North Carolina, along with a hi-speed detachable quad chairlift. At the peak is the 5,506 Skybar, named for the mountain’s signature elevation. The glass roundhouse is the perfect place to grab a beverage at the end of a full day of skiing or to warm up between runs. The Skybar has heated restrooms and a large observation deck overlooking the slopes.
Recent investments in equipment have greatly increased the snow making capability, and the resort also have a full-time terrain park coordinator who updates the terrain park features on a regular basis.
The typical ski season for Beech Mountain runs from Thanksgiving weekend to the middle of March. For more information, visit www.BeechMountainResort.com.
