Happy Wednesday Smarties! Welcome to the first weekend of 2013! Snow has finally arrived to the mountains and this is the perfect weekend to hit the slopes. Put the family in the car and head up to Winterfest in Beech Mountain and then hit the slopes for skiing, ice skating or sledding . It is also a great weekend to catch up on family movies, play some of the games that were delivered for Christmas, visit the Raptor Center or one of our other great county Parks. Get out and enjoy!
