Things to do on a weekend - Celebrate the 80s downhill

This weekend Beech Mountain turns into a culture club with a new sensation - adding some hot pink to its cold white slopes. It's a Retro 80's weekend at one of the High Country's three ski resorts. Leg warmers. Big hair. Loud colors. Smooth operators are free to lose control for three days of the best of times while they beat it up and down the slopes. Sweet dreams are made of this.

“We encourage folks to dig out their 80s ski garb and head up the mountain for an enjoyable ski weekend,” said Calder Smoot of Beech Mountain Tourism Development Authority. “The final weekend of February typically provides great skiing conditions, as well as smaller crowds because it’s just after the President’s Day holiday.”

Businesses throughout town are rolling out retro-themed deals.


Ski season continues for a few more weeks, as long as the temps remain cold enough to make snow. That translates to plenty of opportunities to make a run or two or a dozen before spring weather takes over. An eventful reason to consider Living the Dream in the High Country of North Carolina.
