Are you planning a vacation to the mountains? Make sure to take a scenic lift ride on your next North Carolina Mountain vacation. During the summer months, scenic lift rides are available Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Enjoy panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains as your travel up to our peek summit of 5,506 feet.  The 12-minute ride takes you up to 5506’, where you can relax on the deck and take in the views. The 2,800 square-foot viewing deck offers picnic tables and adirondack chairs for comfortable seating. Beech Mountain Brewing Co. is located in the resort village and offers a wide variety of food offerings.  Grab your food and take it to the summit for a family picnic at 5506′.  Patrons can hike back down or make it a round trip and enjoy views of the Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina Mountains as you descend to the base of the slopes.

Tickets are $12 per person and children five and under ride free. Patrons must be a minimum of 36 inches tall and comfortable tennis shoes are encouraged.  Additional rules and regulations apply. Check this off your bucket list and make Beech Mountain your North Carolina vacation destination.

Beech Mountain Resort is your four-season mountain destination for family fun.  Outdoor activities include disc golf, mountain biking, hiking, yoga, live music and scenic lift rides. Beech Mountain is a close drive to Boone, Banner Elk, and Blowing Rock, North Carolina, so it’s the perfect place to stay for your High Country vacation. Learn more about summer offerings here.
