It’s a winter wonderland up at our favorite NC ski spot, Beech Mountain Ski Resort – and they are expected to get more snow all week. What does that mean for us? It’s the PERFECT weekend to hit the Beech!
In typical Smarty fashion, here is everything you need to know when planning a trip to Beech Mountain.
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.
Don’t forget to check out Beech’s newly renovated Childcare Center, Snow Kamp, and Traxx if you’ve got kids of all ranges or want a little day-ski-date. 🙂
Smarty Tips for Planning your Trip:
Buy your slope tickets online NOW – tickets will sell out.
For the most accurate weather forecast, check Ray’s Weather here. Click here for current snow report.
For accommodations, you can search VRBO (we’ve had great luck with VRBO), Airbnb, Beech Mountain’s Lodging, or the Town of Beech’s Lodging.
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 Breakfast/Lunch in Town:
Fred’s General Mercantile is a MUST. We are HUGE fans of Fred’s and their Backside Deli serves the best breakfast on the mountain!
Smarty Pick for Dinner in Town:
Famous Brick Oven Pizza has the BEST pizza, pasta, desserts on the mountain, seriously! SOOOOO good!
