Skiing 101 at Beech Mountain is an all-inclusive beginner’s program, providing one night’s lodging, equipment rental, helmet rental, full-day lift ticket, and an introductory ski or snowboard lesson at the Resort. The program is available to anyone age eight or older, and runs all month long. Cost of enrollment is $101 per person, double occupancy required.

“Skiing or snowboarding can be intimidating if you haven’t tried them before, so we offer a learning experience that’s easy, safe and fun,” says Talia Freeman, marketing director for Beech Mountain Resort. “We take you though each step. Everything is covered from equipment rental to lift tickets to the proper way to carry skis. We make all the rounds and ensure you arrive at the lesson on time and prepared.”

Registering for “Skiing 101 at Beech” is simple. Just contact any of the participating lodging options listed on the Skiing 101 page and ask for the Skiing 101 package. The accommodation will book your room and provide a voucher at check-in to be redeemed at the ski resort for a lesson, equipment rental, helmet rental, and lift ticket.

Lodging is available Sunday through Thursday nights. Ski and snowboard lessons are available Monday through Friday.

Skiing 101 first debuted in January 2013 and received an award from the National Ski Areas Association as the top campaign to promote Learn-to-Ski Month. Beech Mountain has decided to keep up the trend for its third year running, and we have no doubt that it will be another amazing opportunity!
