Renovations, Upgrades and Free Ski Lessons This Winter


A winter of top-notch skiing and snowboarding is on tap at Beech Mountain Resort.

The resort made several off-season improvements that are paying big dividends. Those improvements include a Magic Carpet conveyer lift added to the beginner slope, new lighting for night skiing, and a continued upgrade of the snowmaking capacity with seven more new high-tech snow guns.

Off the slopes, the View Haus cafeteria has been completely remodeled, a new fleet of Rossignol ski rental equipment is in place, and a Burton Learn-to-Ride Center for snowboarders was added.

As a bonus this winter, free lessons will be given to anyone age eight and older who rents ski or snowboard equipment Monday through Thursday, excluding holiday periods.
