Beech Mountain, NC 28604

Beech Mountain is the highest town in Eastern America and an ideal vacation spot in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. The elevation of this resort town (5,506 feet) sets it apart 12 months a year.

In wintertime, an average annual snowfall of 84.6 inches transforms the mountain into a wonderland for: skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snowshoeing, sledding and cross country skiing. The town maintains a free youth sledding hill that is open all winter and equipped with its own snow gun.

Meanwhile, summertime temperatures hover in the 60s and 70s and rarely exceed 78 degrees, creating an ideal setting for: hiking, mountain biking, trail running, golfing, fishing, or relaxing. The Emerald Outback Trail Park at the top of the mountain is a recent addition that draws outdoor enthusiasts and active families.
