Four miles away in Banner Elk there are more shops and restaurants, and 24 miles away in Boone is nightlife, theaters, and malls.
The slopes are decents, the parks are very good and there are high speed lifts. What more is there to ask for from a mountain in North Carolina? I'm an avid snowboarder and am in Utah a lot and I still like to come to Beech. I'm not sure about the tubing but the staff and lodge are fairly good.
We rented a great house just a few steps from the slopes and loved it. Very snowboard friendly! Plenty of lifts with minimal lines, and I found all the difficulty that I could want.
Some of the facilities are older, but everything was clean and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The kids loved the outdoor skating rink! Fred's Mercantile is always a good place to go and get anything you need and we had a great lunch there.
as far as restaurants, there are a couple of nicer ones up on the mountain and several more in Banner Elk. We will make this a yearly family outing from now on.
Plenty to do for the kids. Winter Wonderland! great sledding, snowboarding,skiing, skating, playing in the snow... good restaurants and
good accommodations. Rent a house or condo.
Friendly town, friendly people.
they satff is poorly trained , the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing, went there for 3 days , very expensive , people not too helpful !! , we had kids , their tubing slope is a Joke and very dangerous , lousy equipment, and they charge $20.oo for 2 hours of nothing !! you can get the same for free in town , the tube slope is about 80 feet long and full of mud , to get back uphill t get hooked like a piece of meat at the butcher and involves the risk of getting unhooked, which lives you in the middle of the trail were you can get hit by the hook, my daughter was smacked in the face!! not a good thing!! it's a waste of time and money, we wento Hawk's nest it was much better , but expensive too , but at leat we had fun !! they tried to charge us extra $8.00 because of a holyday and $3 for parking , told them I not paying !! so we didn't !! overall it was a lousy experience at both places also there was no real snow !! for the money we spent on the cabin rental , plus the travel expenses i would have gone to Killington VT for the real deal !!
aslo stay away from the pancake house , taht place sucks , wors service and expensive breakfast , small portions!! there is not much going on in that part of the mountain !! is dead, only a good pizza place, anf Fred's market saved the trip !! but that is the tail end of town !! so ther eis not much !!
