Sledding it: Always a great run at Beech Mountain

One of the best sledding locations in the High Country is located in Beech Mountain. The town's sledding hill not only has a great incline and slick base, but there's music and hot chocolate nearby. There are also safety officials present, and plenty of places for mom and dad to sit and take pictures of young ones gaining speed.

Plastic sleds are required. Folks are encouraged to bring their own sleds, or they may be purchased at stores on the mountain.

“It’s a free and enjoyable place for children to have fun,” says Peggy Coscia of the Beech chamber. “They come from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee. We get a lot of folks from Florida who are excited because it’s the first time the children have seen snow.”

The High Country is known for its winter activities, not just sledding but skiing as well. Those are two great reasons to consider Living the Dream in Beech Mountain, where there are almost 200 active listings today.
