Totally Retro 80s Weekend Schedule

Each February, the town of Beech Mountain and Beech Mountain Resort come together to create a righteously rad celebration of all things 1980s.

This unparalleled experience takes place Feb. 18-21 and includes live 80s music nightly, retro skiing daily, and plenty of throwback activities in between.

Hop in our “ski slope time machine” to revisit the New Wave era of big hair, leg warmers, bandanas and Members Only jackets. Oh yeah – don’t forget ski suits with shoulder pads!

Now in its fifth year, the weekend has become so epic we added a day. You can now bend the space-time continuum for four days: Thurs., Feb. 18, through Sun., Feb. 21, 2016.

Come experience a weekend voted “Best of the Blue Ridge” by readers of Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine.
