What better way to spend your winter break than to hit the slopes in the NC Mountains! We’re so lucky that our favorite ski/snowboard spot, Beech Mountain Resort, is a hop, skip and a jump from the QC!
The Plym crew hit Beech this weekend on a whim, we decided to ditch our holiday parties and gear up for some snowboarding fun. It was the right decision for sure! The snow was perfect, the slopes were not too busy, and the 5506′ Skybar was the perfect backdrop for Mom & Dad to put their feet up and have a pre-Christmas cocktail!
Over the next week, we’re going to highlight some of the amazing programs that Beech offers, so you may want to pack up the fam and head north! Here’s a preview:
Burton Learn to Ride Center:
The Plym kids have grown up with 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.)
Whether you’re a beginner or progressive rider, you’re never too old to learn new tricks. With hands-on lessons from the best-trained instructors, anyone can experience the fun and excitement of snowboarding. Burton’s ‘Learn to Ride’ program makes getting on a snowboard fun and easy. It’s for ages 6-18 years. With high-quality gear made specifically for beginners, the best hands-on instruction and a low pressure learning environment, their goal is to get everyone up and running before they know it!
Beech Mountain Ski and Ride School:
The professional ski and snowboard instructors at Beech Mountain Resort have a wealth of experience combined with a sharp focus on customer service. Whether you want to master more advanced techniques, or try skiing or snowboarding for the first time, their team of experts can customize lessons to suit all ability levels.
Smarty Tips for Planning your Trip:
Smarty Pick for Gear:
Either rent at Beech Mountain Resort (their snowboards and skis/boots are all nice and new) or get your gear here in Charlotte at Alpine Ski Center so you can just hit the lift as soon as you get there. Smarty Tip: Get your rental equipment as soon as they open or you’ll be waiting for a while.
Smarty Pick for Dinner in Town:
Famous Brick Oven Pizza has the BEST pizza, pasta, desserts on the mountain, seriously! SOOOOO good!
