Beech Mountain Youth Sledding Hills Provide Free Winter Fun
Beech Mountain now has two youth sledding hills open daily, weather permitting, from early December through early March. The hills provide free sledding for children 12 and under.
Sledding conditions are usually favorable thanks to Beech Mountain’s average annual snowfall of nearly 90 inches, plus a snow gun for making the white stuff when Mother Nature isn’t.
The first sledding hill is located next to the Visitor Center at 403 Beech Mountain Parkway in the heart of Beech Mountain, and the second sledding hill is located behind the Brick Oven Pizzeria, across the street at 402 Beech Mountain Parkway. Hours of operation this winter are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
Plastic sleds are required. Folks may bring their own, or they are available for rent or purchase at three stores within walking distance of the sledding hill.
Parking is available across the street near the Brick Oven Pizzeria (which serves hot chocolate), while Wi-FI and warm restrooms are available in the Visitor Center. People are encouraged to call (800) 468-5506 to receive live updates on sledding conditions.
“We provide real-time updates from the sledding hill,” says Beech Mountain tourism director Kate Gavenus. “All we have to do is look out the window.”
Parents are required to supervise their children, and are allowed to ride with younger kids.
