The Sledding Park In North Carolina That Will Make Your Winter Unforgettable
The only municipal sledding park in the entire Southeast is found in North Carolina in the highest town on the east coast. The peak of Beech Mountain sits a little more than a mile above sea level, making the climate on top of this enormous mountain perfect for winter activities. Of course the town is home to Beech Mountain Ski Resort where you can ski, snowboard, ice skate, dine, shop, and more, but the town itself is also home to a wonderful sledding hill that’s perfect for introducing the little ones in the family to winter sports.
