Beech Mountain, N.C.- Prior to the 1977/1978 ski season, Beech Mountain Resort installed the #2 Borvig double chair. The lift, which had modest usage throughout the years, has been removed. The removal has resulted in a major increase in the skiable surface on Robbinâ€™s Run and Southern Star. â€œThis was a major decision we felt would really improve our terrain offeringsâ€, said Ryan Costin, Beech Mountainâ€™s General Manager. He believes, â€œWith the lack of usage throughout the years, we knew it was time for a change.â€ The terminals and the towers have been removed and graded accordingly. Included in the removal, the race building located on the road above Robbinsâ€™s Run, has also been eliminated. Southern Star will now flow into the Crossover Run and have easy access to other terrain. Check back for the changes to the 2011/2012 trail map! THINK SNOW!
