It’s going to be a really fun winter on Beech Mountain.

My friends at Beech Mountain Resort have added a SWEET snowtubing park in the resort village. It has super long runs so your tail flows in the breeze as you glide along the snow, plus there’s a cool Magic Carpet to get you back to the top. My little legs like that!

Snowtubing is located adjacent to the ice skating rink. You can buy tickets for both of those activities at the same place, and a ski lift ticket is not required to go tubing or skating.

I love it when the ski resort village is bustling with happy people, and that should be the case this winter. In addition to tubing and skating, folks can buy cool Beech Mountain Resort souvenirs at the gift shop, sample tasty craft beers at the brewery, or eat and watch sports at the newly-remodeled Beech Tree Bar & Grille.

Out on the mountain, there a bunch of new snow guns to make the white stuff when Mother Nature isn’t. I watched from the trees this summer as they put several fancy guns on Upper White Lightning, which is an exciting black diamond run.

Me and my snowboard generally stay on the intermediate slopes, so you’ll have to let me know how conditions are on White Lightning. (by the way, the resort has a completely new rental fleet of Burton snowboards available)

North-Carolina-snowtubing_Beech-MountainBeech Mountain Resort also spent a lot of time during the offseason installing new electrical systems and mechanical upgrades on the two main chairlifts.

Seeing all the upgrades motivated me to store up a lot of acorns this past summer to supply plenty of nourishment for a winter full of outdoor fun on Beech Mountain.

Hope to see you in the resort village or on the slopes!
