As snowboarding has increased in popularity, Beech Mountain has kept pace with that growth. That includes the recent addition of a Burton Learn-to-Ride Center with state-of-the-art equipment and expert instruction.
The resort maintains two terrain parks. The Meadows Terrain Park is for beginning & novice snowboarders, while advanced boarders flock to the Powder Bowl Terrain Park.
The Powder Bowl includes natural and man-made terrain, including half-pipes, grind rails, and a host of jumps with landing areas. Likewise, snowboarders are encouraged to ride all of the mountain’s runs and explore the challenging and adventurous terrain at Beech Mountain Resort.
The resort has one of the Southeast’s best freestyle terrain specialists in Ric “Fish” Wilkinson. Ric is known for both his design acumen and creativity. He’s constantly adding, moving and tweaking features to keep the snowboarding experience top-notch at Beech Mountain Resort.
The resort also does a superb job updating the features available in the Powder Bowl, as well as the latest snow conditions. To see what’s happening, check out the Beech Mountain Resort Facebook page.
Want to try snowboarding, but don’t own a board? No problem. The rental house at Beech Mountain Resort can outfit you with the gear you’ll need, as can the multiple shops located all over the mountain. It’s the perfect opportunity to expand your downhill horizons, or just try something new with part of a larger group.
Beech Mountain Resort also offers snowboarding lessons and instruction for individuals or groups. It won’t take long before you and your family and friends are discovering the fun and excitement of snowboarding on Eastern America’s favorite winter sports resort!
