Beech Mountain Resort is marching forth into spring with two budget-friendly initiatives for skiers and snowboarders.

Continuing for the remainder of the ski season, the resort will provide one youth (12 and younger) lift ticket at no charge with the purchase of every adult lift ticket.

Also, weekday pricing will be in effect seven days a week for the remainder of the season.
Beech Mountain enters the month with near-record amounts of snow for early March.

“This is the most snow we’ve had in March for years,” marketing director Talia Freeman said. “It’s crazy how much snow is out there.”

Another bonus for skiers and snowboarders awaits. The resort has decided not to make snow during ski sessions the entire month, meaning any snowmaking activity that occurs will take place at night or early morning.

“We want to provide the best skiing possible with clear conditions under blue skies,” Freeman said.
Although Mother Nature has the final say in the matter, officials at Beech Mountain Resort have set a goal to stay open well into the second half of March.

“As long as the weather cooperates and there are people on the slopes, we will stay open,” Freeman said.
