Nice Ice, Baby! Take the Kids Skating at Beech Mountain Resort
A centerpiece of the Beech Mountain Resort’s Alpine Beech Tree Village is the 7,000 square-foot outdoor, and refrigerated (No fear of temporary thaws ruining your glide here!), ice skating rink. Open daily and well into the evenings, the rink is a favorite among all skill levels of skaters.
There's a little bit of history connected to the rink as well, as it has served as the location for skating exhibitions featuring Jimmy and Margaret Durham and many other world-famous skaters, back in the 70's.
Enjoy music, and the shops and cafes surrounding the rink, where you can get a hot drink or snack when you take a rest break while the Zambini grooms the ice. Or gather round the nearby fire pit to toast marshmallows . . . and maybe your nose and fingers too! Beech Mountain Resort staff can also arrange a pizza party, and provide information about their affordable group rates.
Skating offers everyone in your group a fun-filled activity for a beautiful winter day on Beech Mountain.
