Much of the nostalgia people have of Beech Mountain Resort comes from the excitement of its jammed-packed schedule. The 2010-2011 season offers the best event schedule yet, proving that Beech Mountain Resort is the most exciting resort in the North Carolina High Country.
December will bring in the warmth of the holiday season, as Beech Mountain Resort teams with the Collaborative Stage Company to offer a night of caroling and holiday spirit. Live music will continue through the holiday period, leading up to the best New Year’s Eve celebration in the area. This New Year’s Eve, come prepared to have the time of your life, as the Beech Tree Bar and Grille brings you not one, but three bands and a free shuttle service.
The New Year will begin with a bang with the annual Winterfest celebration on Jan. 7-9. The bathing beauty, cardboard box derby, and village rail jam return, complimented by live music and performances by the Summit Figure Skating Club. A new addition to the Winterfest schedule is the community chili, chowder, soups and stews showdown. Try and say that five times fast!
A very special highlight this January is National Learn to Ski Month and the 30th annual Beech Mountain Resort adaptive ski clinic. The clinic begins Monday, Jan. 17, and is expected to bring over 200 participants from all over the Southeast.
DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t forget to wear your collegiate apparel Feb. 10-12, because, more than likely, your favorite school will be attending College Fest. Colleges and universities from all over the Southeast will come together for discounted ski packages, games, music and much more. February will conclude with the Under Armour 3rd Rail Jam. On Feb. 26, the 3rd Rail will showcase the finest in snow sports, with a winner takes all rail jam, slopeside graffiti art, mcbattles, hip-hop music, and a live performance from a very special guest.
Beech Mountain Resort is pleased to partner with Edge of the World again to bring the most intense Boarder and Skiercross series yet to the North Carolina High Country. The five date series will provide a new and improved course, and will include music and a cookout for spectators and competitors.
