A winter attraction not miss is the sledding hill in the town of Beech Mountain. This popular sled run provides a wonderland of fun for children 12 and under.
Located adjacent to the visitors center, the hill is in operation daily (weather permitting) thanks to a combination of natural and man-made snow. Safety personnel are on duty, and a loud speaker plays music. Hot chocolate is available at nearby restaurants.
Plastic sleds are required. Families may bring their own, or they're available for rent and purchase at nearby stores on the mountain. Sledding is available through late February or early March, depending on the weather.
Real-time sledding hill conditions are available by calling (800) 468-5506.
