COVID Protocols

Beech Mountain will continue implementation of the NCSAA Ski Well, Be Well campaign as well as follow the guidance of state and local officials. Please note that guidelines could change.

Online ticketing has been offered at Beech Mountain for several years, and they are growing the process this season as they are working to become completely paperless. For this season, Beech Mountain has moved to a digital waiver system along with a digital rental equipment agreement system.

What’s New This Season

Beech Mountain has made a number of improvements over the offseason.

The resort has added 1,000 gallons per minute pump to primary pump house and added 1,250 gallons per minute pump to Lake Sanits to improve snowmaking capability. To take advantage of the added capacity, 10 new SMI fan guns have been added to the snowmaking arsenal.

When the season kicks off, Beech will also showcase a new village plaza with walkways, multiple fire pits, and landscaping with ice skating being relocated behind the lodge.

Other improvements for this season include a renovated sports shop with a new rental show, outdoor speaker system through the resort village, an outdoor snack/shack at the Lodge, a new coffee shop, and retail location named First Chair Coffee, and LED Slope lighting on Southern Star.

Prefer to stick with sledding? The popular youth sledding hill in the Town of Beech Mountain is open daily from early December through mid March. The hill provides free sledding for children 12 and under.

Sledding conditions are usually favorable thanks to Beech Mountain’s average annual snowfall of nearly 90 inches, plus a snow gun for making the white stuff when Mother Nature isn’t.

The sledding hill is located next to the Visitors Center/Chamber of Commerce on Beech Mountain Parkway in the heart of Beech Mountain.

Terrain Park Features

Beech Mountain Resort unveiled a new terrain park in 2016. Aptly named The Park, the newly-constructed facility is the largest terrain park in resort history. It caters to riders with rotating freestyle features, a dedicated snowmaking system, new light towers, and a surface tow lift providing top-notch conditions in the park day and night. The Park, which has more than 50 features in its inventory, now has more acreage to build more elaborate jumps and features.

As an added bonus, relocating the park away from the Powder Bowl slope recaptures prime terrain for skiers. For the last seven years, the terrain park’s location on the Powder Bowl slope limited the amount of skier traffic that section could handle. Powder Bowl will now re-open as skiable terrain with a blue square designation.
