This mountain is not an expert hill. It is not run by a huge company and at just over 5,500 elevation, it is reliant on Mother Nature to cooperate and provide amazing snow and beautiful weather. It does crack me up to read some reviews of disheartened customers complaining about the poor snow and conditions. Beech mountain is a small... More

We went to Beech Mountain for the last weekend of snow and had a blast! It is a fun mountain despite being somewhat small and not having all the runs open. If you really are just in it for the fun with friends it's great for a quick weekend getaway! We drove up from Florida and it was worth the... More

We go to the area during the summer or fall, so I don't know what the skiing is like. It is nice to drive the windy steep road and see the scenery. There is a nice store at the top with nice people to talk to.

We should have been tipped off at the ticket counter; the young lady selling lift tickets couldn't offer basic information about the different types of tickets, and worse, didn't seem interested in selling our family of five anything. In fact, everyone we encountered seemed to have a take it or leave it attitude. We spent three days there and didn't... More

This was one of the best vacation days with our grandsons. They are Florida boys and just love getting to the ski slopes for snowboarding. It was 22F when we were here and the snow machines were going full blast. We found a great inside table with a huge window view on the slope. You will love it!

This was my first visit to Beech Mountain and I am not in a hurry to return. I have to say the views are amazing and I am glad I went. However, as a ski destination it is not great and I would not venture onto these icy slopes. It may be a better option in the Summer but I... More

Revisited Beech Mountain on 2/11/2017 for the morning half day session. We got on the mountain at 8:30 in the morning and were able to park right up front (and get on the chairlift before 9am). For the Southeast, this has been a terrible winter with prolonged warm spells, rainfall, and little snowfall. For having about 150 snowmaking hours this... More

At the height of ski season, there are only a few muddy and narrow slopes open with terribly long lift lines. Possibly the worst disappointment (and we had low expectations) in many years of skiing across North America and in Europe. We wanted a few hours of just basic time on the slope- Beech Mountain failed to deliver.

Enjoyed the excellent ski instruction. I'm a beginner and after 3 lessons felt pretty good on the green slopes and lifts . They would even slow the lift down to make easier loading/ unloading for beginners. They were very accommodating. Beginner magic carpet area was great place to start. Wasn't crowded and conditions were pretty good considering warm weather !... More
