Tips from locals
This is the smallest and more family friendly of the three ski mountains in Boone, but the closest to Buttermilk Acres at around a 30 minute drive. Definitely a good spot for first time skiers or boarders.
There are 3 Ski resorts in Boone NC, this one is family friendly and easy to park. Good for beginners and intermediate skiers, not many trails but fun! Has a restaurant and nice outside viewing area. Also has a great Terrain Park! This is 2 hour drive away, leave early to play all day.

“Beech Mountain is known for being the highest ski destination east of the Rockies. There's a lot of debate in the area as to which is the better ski mountain but personally me and Addie prefer Sugar in the winter and Beech for all the other seasons and here are a few reasons why. Beech's vert is about 400 feet less then Sugars and it doesn't offer as much terrain variation, plus its the furthest from Buttermilk at around 45 minutes. That being said Beech is better for all the other seasons, better views in fall, great mountain biking, a summer concert series that brings in big names a disc golf course and a brewery! Plus you get the feeling of a local seen that's non existent at Sugar. ”
