With 5506' Skybar, Alpine Village, Beech Mountain Brewing Co., Freestyle Terrain, and Tubing, there is more than enough to do at Beech Mountain Resort. The resort features four webcams, so visitors can always know what the conditions are like before heading out. Visitors can take a break to get a beer brewed right on site or grab a quick bite to eat as you warm up your frozen limbs at the newly named and updated Beech Mountain Brewing Co.

Currently, Beech Mountain is installing two new chairlifts for this winter season. This upgrade will make the ride to the top a lot smoother while the spectacular view will remain the same!
