Hey Gang,

Sometimes on a chilly day I like to stay in my nest and surf the web for other bloggers. Recently I came across a great post by Sue Rodman of

Sue rocks. She’s based in Atlanta and covers fun activities for families across the Southeast. Sue recommends bringing the whole family to Beech Mountain for a swell vacation that will have your crew chirping about how much fun they had.

She points out that Beech is a great family field trip in multiple seasons: winter, summer and fall. Here’s an excerpt of what she wrote about winter:

“There are several ski resorts in North Carolina, but Beech Mountain Ski Resort is the only one with an Alpine Village that includes shops like Ski Beech Sports and Beech Village Gifts, as well as restaurants, including the Beech Mountain Brewing Company and the View Haus Cafeteria. The Alpine Village also includes a 7,000 foot ice skating rink, kids 4 and under skate free with a paying adult. And the latest addition for playing in the North Carolina snow is a tubing park, located adjacent to the Alpine Village at the base of the mountain. Here chutes are up to 700 feet long. There are daily sessions lasting an hour and 45 minutes. Riders must be at least 42” tall and this is an activity to do before or after skiing, as no ski boots are allowed.”

Sue also gives a shout-out to warmer activities:

 “Although many think of the mountains in North Carolina as a wintertime getaway, more and more folks are heading to Beech Mountain NC in the warmer months, for hiking and mountain biking, as well as the gorgeous views.”

If you wanna read the entire post (and see some cool pictures!), all you have to do is click here.

See ya soon in the resort village or on the snowy slopes!

Yours truly,
