Continuing a multi-year snowmaking upgrade, North Carolina’s Beech Mountain Resort has added ten new SMI Automated Polecats, bringing its arsenal of state-of-the-art snowguns to 18. Automated snowmaking now covers every slope, allowing Beech Mountain to make snow more efficiently.
Additional enhancements for the 2011-2012 winter season include a new beginner slope named “School Yard,” located behind the View Haus Cafeteria. Beech Mountain has removed Chair #2, increasing the skiable terrain on Southern Star and Robbins Run. The “Roots Rideshop” freestyle ski and snowboard shop will provide demos, retail, and an indoor half-pipe. A new coffee and gift shop has also been added to Beech Tree Village.
Guests will be able to shelter in a new building while waiting for shuttle pick up and drop off.
“We had a great summer,” said Ryan Costin, General Manager of Beech Mountain Resort. “We are making progress across the board and making decisions with our customer’s experience in mind. I know that our customers will appreciate the pride we are putting into the details,” he added.
