As Beech Mountain Resort readies for the winter season, a summer of game-changing upgrades includes include terrain redesign, new chairlifts, and increased snowmaking capacity.
Lift One, a double chairlift, has been replaced with a new Doppelmayr Quad Chairlift, equipped with a loading conveyor. This marks the third new Doppelmayr Quad Chairlift installed in four years.
The terrain park has been converted into a beginner trail named Carolina Caribbean, with a new carpet conveyor lift. Carolina Caribbean is a testament to the resort’s commitment to expanding lesson offerings and increasing overall participation. This addition provides additional acreage of green terrain equipped with 100 percent snowmaking coverage to accommodate novice and beginner skiers.
Terrain Park enthusiasts have a new enhanced park located in Powder Bowl and a progression park in the Meadows.
One of the resort’s most popular amenities, snow tubing, got a new all-weather snowmaking system. This new technology extends the tubing season and allow the implementation of pre-booking. Latitude 90 is an enclosed snowmaking system that withstands ambient temperatures, winds, and humidity.
As a part of a multi-year snowmaking upgrade project, ten new SMI automated fan guns joined the fleet, bringing the overall fan gun total to 93. This snowmaking investment will contribute significantly to greater snow consistency from November through March.
Beech Mountain Resort is committed to improving the overall guest experience through continued on-mountain enhancements.
