Ski Beech’s Winterfest, Sugar’s Winter Trail Days, and Park Fun at App Planned for this Snow-Filled Weekend!

There’s lots going on this coming weekend in the world of North Carolina Skiing around the High Country ski areas of Ski Beech Resort and Ski Sugar. January is always a great month to visit the North Carolina Ski Resorts near Banner Elk and Boone, and with the fantastic weather conditions coming up coupled with the fun events slated to happen, we’re thinking many of you will be heading up to Ski Beech NC, Sugar Mountain Resort, and Appalachian Ski Mountain to enjoy some NC Skiing.

This weekend, January 9th-10th, head up to Beech Mountain and enjoy a phenomenal party at an elevation above 5,000 feet! Ski Beech’s Winterfest Weekend is always a lot of fun and this year’s event will include live music, Beech’s bathing beauty contest, the big air contest, the Village rail jam, the infamous cardboard box derby, delicious food, demo offerings, and plenty of great sales at the ski shop. Members of the Message Board and site team will most definitely be in attendance throughout the weekend! Get ready for some fun!
