Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a nonbinding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Enjoy snow fun without faux litigation with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one adult weekend day or twilight lift ticket at Beech Mountain Resort (a $60 value).
Beech Mountain's slick slopes and snowy trails give its customers a thrilling powder experience with the claim of eastern North America's highest ski resort, which sits 5,506 feet above sea level. The resort features beginner Play Yard areas, intermediate slopes and advanced skier tracks, including the White Lightning and Southern Star. After shredding blankets of frozen rain, patrons can peruse the souvenir shop or enjoy a fresh coffee at the café, warming tummies while taunting yetis that are too large to hold espresso mugs. For those who are sans skis, Beech Mountain's rental shop stocks everything needed to blissfully coast into the great white beyond.
- This was my second time snowboarding, & I thought it was great. Especially for the east coast. The slopes are what you make them, as easy or as hard as your prefer. You can even get some pretty good speed on the beginners if wanted. – mlphillips42, OnTheSnow.com
- As far as boarding and skiing in the southeast it gets no better than Beech. – Matthew C., Yelp
