Smarties, winter finally arrived in North Carolina, and it’s time to hit the slopes! We’re looking at AWESOME ski weather this weekend – a recent 8″ dump of fresh snow and powder and sunny Carolina blue skies! We’re so lucky that Beech Mountain is a hop, skip and a jump from the QC. And this weekend is the perfect weather for a spontaneous family ski outing!
The Smarty team’s kids have taken snowboard and ski lessons at Beech and are forever hooked. It’s crazy how easy and naturally snowboarding and skiing comes to kids. (Note: If your kids can ripstick, then they’ll be tee’d up perfectly for the kick-booty Burton Learn to Ride Center at Beech. But, skiing is just as fun if that’s what they’re in to!) And psst! The peeps at Beech tell us the Black Diamond is OPEN for business, so latch on the boots and get out there!
