Lane Passmore shared this Trip Report to Ski Beech:

I had my annual guy’s ski weekend, and we chose Beech and Sugar to get our ski on this year!

We went to Beech on Friday and that made for a interesting day on the slopes! First, we wanted to check out Oz Run and found nice conditions! Oz got the juices flowing then we made our way to White Lighting. Half way down I feared for my life! (A little exaggeration) but there where ice chunks the size of your head all over the bottom of this run! (No exaggeration) We next moved to Southern Star and found more favorable conditions. That is were we stayed the rest of the afternoon.

Later in the day, snow and wind moved in and made it quite chilly! We had a great time on the slopes
