Winter in The High Country • Skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snow tubing, zip lining, snowshoeing, and sledding. If you can do it on snow or ice, you can do it in the North Carolina High Country. NC is home to some of the highest ski areas in the Eastern US, and winter here brings a time to celebrate in stead of hibernate.
During the winter months, the Town of Beech Mountain offers a free public sledding hill for kids of all ages. With snow making capabilities, the hill is open all winter for your enjoyment. The sledding hill is located adjacent to Town Hall on Beech Mountain.
