RIDERSCHOICE

FRIDAY February 3rd is at capacity for RidersChoice No more registrations will be accepted for 2/3/23

Ski Well, Be Well Information

 Riderschoice is a Homeschool Ski and Snowboard Club / Group offering Homeschool Ski and Snowboard Discounts at Ski Resorts in the Mountains of Western North Carolina

 

Please check the Beech Mountain website (https://www.beechmountainresort.com)  for dates the ski resort is open and slope conditions. All available homeschool dates for the Riderschoice Group are listed below.

 

Bring your homeschool family to Beech Mountain Ski Resort during the 2022 - 2023 ski season any Mon. - Fri. non-holiday time and receive the wonderful homeschool discount!  Make sure you register with Riderschoice at least three days in advance by completing the form below for EACH ski/snowboard participant for EACH ski date. Glenna Toney, the Riderschoice volunteer Coordinator, will make sure your reservation is processed with Beech Mountain. 

 

New for this season! All Friday ski dates will have a cap for a maximum of 150 for the Riderschoice Group! So, if you plan to ski / board on a Friday, please put your reservation in well in advance to make sure there is room for your family.

 

 Lift tickets are good from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm for a day ticket and from 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm for the twilight ticket.

 

$40 per skier/snowboarder which includes, lift ticket and equipment rental. 

 

$15 per skier / snowboarder for beginner group lesson (optional) / Must be 8 years old or older (NO exceptions!). Please plan to give a cash tip the instructor.

 

$30 per skier/snowboarder who has their own equipment.

 

 

Beech Mountain Ski Resort has gone paperless, so each person who needs a ski or board rental will need to complete the rental form once you arrive at Group Sales.  

Please don’t make any payments for rentals or anything else in advance on the Beech Mountain Resort Website if you want to receive the Riderschoice discount.

 

 

 

Rentals are on a first come first serve basis. So I would recommend arriving at 8:00 AM on your ski date. Fridays are expected to be especially busy! New for this season! All Friday ski dates will have a cap for a maximum of 150 for the Riderschoice Group! So, if you plan to ski / board on a Friday, please complete your reservation forms in well in advance to make sure there is room for your family.

 Families can still ski / snowboard even if Beech Mnt. Ski Resort runs out of rentals, they will just need to rent skis or snowboards elsewhere and then pay the $30 price for the lift ticket.  

 

How to get your family registered to join the Riderschoice discount homeschool ski and snowboard group at Beech Mountain Ski Resort. 

 

Please follow these few steps…

 

1. Look at the available discount ski dates listed on this page for the Riderschoice Group, register your family at least 3 days in advance of the ski date. 

 

2. Register each person in your group individually on the Riderschoice registration form for everyone who is going to ski or snowboard. So, if there are 6 people in your family, then you will have to complete the Riderschoice online registration form 6 times!  Once for each person who will be skiing or snowboarding.

 

3. Once the Riderschoice forms are submitted, check your email for a conformation email. 

 

4. If you need rentals, you will need to fill out the rental form at the resort kiosk located inside the rental shop.

 

5. Show up at Group Sales between 8 am - 3:30 pm to check in with the Riderschoice Group and pay.  Please send only one person in your individual group to the desk to pay. 

 

6. Read all of the Riderschoice Group rules on this page and follow them.  This is very important to everyone in our group. 

 

7.  Email Beech Mountain Group Sales ASAP (groups@skibeech.com) if you are not going to be able to show up on the date that you are registered. 

 

8. Have fun!  Be sure to thank Beech Mountain Group Sales for making this great discount opportunity available to the Riderschoice Group and the homeschool community. 

 

Please make my job easy by following these steps!  I don’t work for Beech Mountain Ski Resort, I am a volunteer homeschool grandparent who started, coordinates and runs the Riderschoice Group.

Please be patient and follow all of the rules and policies. 

 

If you are nervous or highly concerned about congested areas, please stay home and join us again on another day when the crowds are smaller.
