Beech Mountain Resort

The 5,506 foot summit of the resort rises higher than any ski resort east of the Rockies!

Beech Mountain's appeal begins with elevation. The 5,506-foot summit of Beech Mountain Resort rises higher than any ski resort east of the Rockies, and the town of Beech Mountain is the East's highest municipality. The mountain gets 80 to 100 inches of snow annually and clear-day views stretch across Tennessee and north to Virginia.  In addition to natural snow, Beech Mountain greatly enhanced its snowmaking system in the last few years.

Beginner learning areas include wide open freestyle, served by two double chairs.  The Boone area's only high-speed detachable quad chairlift soars to the summit and serves the mountain's entire 830 feet of vertical feet drop. Popular intermediate slopes Upper and Lower Shawneehaw dip from the peak, the lower part served by its own chairlift. Upper and Lower Robbins' Run (intermediate) and expert Southern Star plummet down across the steeper face of Beech. Another double chair to the top flanks those slopes.

White Lightning is the really steep run at Beech. The slope starts at the top and drops gently at first, then gets steep enough to produce those butterflies in the stomach. The almost endless view adds to the effect. A double chairlift serves this expert slope. The Oz Run is something completely different. From the summit, a new quad chairlift dips off the back of the mountain serving this favorite intermediate slope. Vistas reach to distant Mount Mitchell and the nearby summits of the Appalachian Trail (Click here for a Beech Mtn Ski Trail Map).

An exciting terrain park entices snowboarders and freestyle skiers. Beech Mountain Resort maintains a large, Professional Ski Instructors of America ski school with an adaptive ski program.

Beech is all about atmosphere. A picturesque alpine village, ice skating rink, and shops surround the base of the slopes. The Beech Tree is a favorite for food and drinks, and the slope-side Viewhaus Cafeteria offers a fine view and a huge, sunny porch.  Beech Mountain has added a new amenity for guests - a skybar providing food and beverage service at the top of the mountain. This newly-constructed facility has been named 5506', paying tribute to the elevation that gives them the title of highest ski area in eastern America.

Special events add to the fun. Early January brings Winterfest, featuring bathing suit contests on skis, ski races, and the Cardboard Box Derby.
