What Real Life Looks Like Inside The Snowiest Town In North Carolina

Unsurprisingly, the snowiest town in North Carolina is located on top of a mountain. Straddling Avery and Watauga Counties, the town of Beech Mountain is billed as Eastern America’s Highest Town because, since 1981, it’s been the highest incorporated community east of the Mississippi. At an elevation of 5,506′ above sea level, Beech towers over the valleys below and delivers some of the best long range, layered views of the surrounding mountains.

Real life inside North Carolina’s snowiest town is both exciting and laid back. It’s pleasant and exhilarating at the same time. And since it’s a resort, you too, can come for a visit and have a little slice of the winter pie dished out on top of Beech Mountain.
