A Busy Summer, Here Comes Winter!

With winter quickly approaching, Beech Mountain Resort is excited about the 2011-2012 season. Last Season Beech Mountain Resort offered 100 days of skiing and snowboarding. In hopes to make the upcoming season better than before, the resort has made significant improvements.

This has been the busiest summer to date. I am still amazed and proud of all we accomplished.

Beech Mountain Resort continues to increase it’s offerings in the snowmaking department. Ten SMI Automated Polecats were added to the automated system, bringing the total number to 18. The automated system is now located on every slope to give Beech Mountain Resort the largest snowmaking capacity in the resort’s history.

In addition to the hard work it required to install the new snowmaking system, the resort staff was able to tackle many other improvements.

    Some of the new items include:

  • The removal of Chair #2, increasing the skiable terrain on Southern Star and Robbins Run
  • A new beginner slope. The ‘School Yard’ will be located behind the View Haus Cafeteria
  • A new freestyle ski and snowboard shop. ‘Roots Rideshop’ will offer demos, retail and the only public indoor half-pipe in the area.
  • Beech Mountain Coffee and Gift Shop. Located in the Beech Tree Village, the shop will offer souvenirs, drinks and snacks.
  • A new building for shuttle pick up and drop off. The newly designed space will shield customers from the cold conditions, while waiting for the shuttle.
  • New Snowboard Rentals.

We had a great summer. We are making progress across the board and making decisions with our customer’s experience in mind. I know that our customers will appreciate the pride we are putting into the details.
