Press Release by Craig Distl
Spring skiing is on tap in the North Carolina mountains as Beech Mountain Resort has announced plans to ski well into the month of March.
Thanks to significant February snows and increased production from its upgraded snow making equipment, the resort enters March with a surplus of powder on the slopes.
"We still have a lot of snow right now. This is probably the most snow we've had at this time of the year in a very long time," said Talia Freeman, the resort's marketing director. "I feel confident in the product that is on the hill and we're going to stay open as long as we can."
For skiers and snowboarders, there are definite advantages to hitting the slopes in March. Those advantages include: moderate temperatures, extended daylight hours, and shorter lift lines.
Additionally, the ski resort has switched to weekday pricing seven days a week, resulting in a savings of 43 percent on weekend lift tickets. Furthermore, midweek stay-and-ski discount packages are now available on weekends.
