Come To Beech Mountain NC For The Holidays, Skiing, Sledding & More

Beech Mountain, North Carolina seems to be the perfect place for a NC Christmas or winter vacation....of course I LOVE it also in the summer with average temps around 70.... but back to the winter part.

It's a quaint little town on top of the world, at least it feels like it - being the highest town east of the Rockies at 55oo foot elevation !

Beech is about 35 miles from Boone NC, 15 minutes to Banner Elk, 2.5 hour drive from Charlotte & Winston Salem, 1.5 hours from Hickory - so very convenient as well.

Beech Mountain normally has a lot of snow in the winter but...... if they don't - Ski Beech is sure to make some for skiiers, snowboarders, snow tubers, sledders and ice skaters. When it does snow on Beech, you are in for a true Winter Wonderland !

The Town of Beech Mountain also makes a lot of snow for the sledding hill beside Town Hall. Tons of sledding fun for kids up to 12..... all for free ! You gotta love that !! Step across the street for hot chocolate, pizza or sandwiches at The Brick Oven Pizzeria-Yum!!

Fred's General Mercantile is always decked out for Christmas. Since it's an old fashioned general store....... you'll feel like slowing down and enjoying Christmas at a more relaxed pace - isn't that what we all need ;-)

There will be a Santa Visit at Fred's Gazebo, 4:00PM to 5:00 PM this Saturday-12/20/08 and the Christmas Tree Lighting at Beech Mountain Chamber office 5:00PM to 6:00 PM

What about an old-fashioned hay ride and bonfire on December 30th - call Beech Mountain 800-438-7325 for more info.

If you are interested in snow skiing, sledding, snow boarding, snow tubing or just relaxing..... Beech Mountain NC might just be the place for you ---- winter, summer, spring or fall.. Cold temperatures are moving back into Beech on Sunday and we MIGHT see snow on Christmas Eve !!

Merry Christmas From Beech Mountain North Carolina !

We wanted to wish you the most wonderful Christmas ever by sharing the ONLY perfect gift - JESUS CHRIST..

May God richly bless you this Christmas and in 2009 !!

Luke Chapter 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

Luke Chapter 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

You can accept this wonderful gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ !

John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
