New Terrain Park Expands Options for Riders and Creates More Skiable Terrain
BEECH MOUNTAIN, NC -Beech Mountain Resort is set to unveil a new terrain park this winter. Aptly named The Park, the newly-constructed facility is the largest terrain park in resort history. It caters to riders with rotating freestyle features, a dedicated snowmaking system, new light towers, and a surface tow lift providing top-notch conditions in the park day and night. The Park, which has more than 50 features in its inventory, now has more acreage to build more elaborate jumps and features.
As an added bonus, relocating the park away from the Powder Bowl slope recaptures prime terrain for skiers. For the last seven years, the terrain park’s location on the Powder Bowl slope limited the amount of skier traffic that section could handle. Powder Bowl will now re-open as skiable terrain with a blue square designation. “This project is not only extremely important to our dedicated park riders, it also increases skiable terrain for the general customer base,” says terrain park manager Ric Wilkinson.
By building the new terrain park in an area that was previously unused, the resort has created more slopeside lodging. “We are very pleased with the results of this project because it does so much to enhance the guest experience at Beech Mountain Resort,” says General Manager Ryan Costin. “It increases the amount of skiable acreage, creates better flow for snowboarders and skiers and allows us to handle more skiers at peak times.”
