Sledding Hill Provides Free Winter Fun

Sledding hill Beech 013The popular youth sledding hill in the Town of Beech Mountain is open daily, weather permitting, 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. Hours of operation are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends and holidays.

It’s operated by the Beech Mountain Parks and Recreation Department (weather permitting) with safety peSledding hill Beech 016rsonnel on duty. A loud speaker plays music and hot chocolate is available at nearby restaurants.

Plastic sleds are required. Folks may bring their own, or sleds are available for purchase at nearby stores on the mountain.

Parking is available across the street near the Brick Oven Pizzeria, while restrooms are available in the Visitors Center/Chamber. People are encouraged to call (800) 468-5506 to receive live updates on sledding conditions.

“We provide real-time updates from the sledding hill,” says Beech Mountain tourism director Kate Gavenus. “All we have to do is look out the window."

Parents are strongly encouraged to supervise their children.
