The second annual Totally '80s Retro Ski Weekend, which takes place Feb. 22 to 24, includes multiple appearances by the Carolina Ghostbusters.

The Charlotte-based Ghostbusters will at Beech Mountain all weekend with Ecto-1, an authentic replica of the famed Ectomobile from the “Ghostbusters” movie.

They will make a Friday evening appearance at Famous Fast Eddie’s deli and bar, before moving to the ski village at Beech Mountain Resort for Saturday and Sunday.

The Ghostbusters will also judge Saturday night's ’80s Apparel Contest at the resort's Beech Tree Lodge. The contest winner receives a $500 cash prize.

"We're always excited at the ways the decade of the 1980s comes back, and the different places we get to go to," said Doc Geressy, captain of Carolina Ghostbusters. "Beech Mountain's retro ’80s weekend is one more cool thing on our list."

People who attend the Ghostbusters appearances are encouraged to bring cameras, so they can pose for photos with the crew and Ecto-1.

"There are a lot of Ectomobiles across the country, but probably only six or seven of the older style Ectos like ours. We're very lucky to have one," Geressy said. "People will be able to get their picture made with one of the most iconic movie cars in all of cinema."

In addition to making promotional appearances, the Carolina Ghostbusters are actually paranormal investigators. Joining Geressy at Beech will be team member Cheralyn Lambeth, a longtime investigator of the paranormal and author of "Ghosts of Greater Charlotte."

"We'll be posing for pictures and have all kinds of different equipment from the movie," Geressy said. "Folks will be able to see the proton packs, the ghost trap, and we'll be in our official jumpsuits."
