Hey Beech fans, start spreading the news. Beech Mountain Resort opened for the 2017-18 season on Black Friday, Nov. 24.

We’re even more excited than normal about this winter’s ski season because it’s the 50th anniversary of skiing at Beech Mountain. The resort has sweet deals in honor of its golden anniversary, and our lodging friends do, too.

Special promotions throughout the season include 1967 lift ticket prices. Tuesdays are $9 for ladies’ night, Wednesdays are $9 for men’s night, and Thursdays are couples’ night: $16 for the first ticket and $8 for the second ticket.

Lodging properties have created the 50th anniversary $50 lodging special. Stay at one of our cozy inns, cabins or chalets for $50 per person Sundays through Thursdays (other lodging packages are available by clicking here).

And, of course, we party animals on Beech Mountain are going to celebrate in style. For New Year’s Eve, there will be three parties on Beech Mountain. The ski resort throws two parties, and the Buckeye Recreation Center hosts one!

At Beech Mountain Resort, the whole family is invited to the Lodge for bingo, party tunes and late-night ice-skating and fireworks. Meanwhile, at the resort’s Beech Tree Bar & Grille, an adults-only soiree includes drink specials, dancing and live music. Everyone can enjoy the fireworks show when the clock strikes midnight.

My cousin Darryl from Raleigh and my other cousin Darryl from Charlotte are leaving their nests to come celebrate New Year’s Eve the Beech Mountain way. Come join us in a chorus of “Auld Lang Syne.”

The fun continues January 25-28 when the ski resort hosts a multi-day 50th anniversary celebration. The big day is Saturday, Jan. 27, with an oompah band during the day and fireworks at night. Break out the lederhosen!

If Mother Nature cooperates, we’re going to make the most of this 50th season for four solid months — from opening day on Nov. 24 till closing on Mar. 24.

Think snowy thoughts and meet me on the mountain!

Yours truly,
Boomer the Squirrel
