Beech Riderschoice Rules:


Homeschool Community:


Welcome to Riderschoice! We just have a few items to go over before you get started!


Skiing/Boarding at this low rate is a privilege. So....


This special rate is open to the homeschool community (students, parents, and family members).


Riderschoice (homeschool community) must arrive during designated ski/board dates and times to get this special rate. 


Please don't openly advertise or brag about this rate to others either on the slopes or elsewhere. Be thankful and discreet.


Picnic lunches are allowed only in the group sales office or outside near the ice-skating rink (no coolers, crock pots, or containers larger than lunch box size).


No boards or skies in the building!


Riderschoice expects to leave a positive image with the staff of Beech Mnt.! Please follow all slope rules! Clean up after yourself, don't leave trash around the tables. Speak to employees with respect.


If you have major problems contact Glenna Toney or Group Sales.


On all rental forms list your group as Riderschoice


Beech and Riderschoice strongly encourage beginners and less experienced skiers and riders to take a lesson (it is included in your package).


Helmets are strongly encouraged for your safety and are available on first come first serve and are included in your rental package!


Put lift ticket in a visible location and on clothing that you are going to wear all day.


At the end of the ski season, we want Beech Mnt. to be happy to invite the homeschool community back again next year! So, please put your best foot forward! We want to be known as the best group to visit the mountain!


Be Safe and Have a Great Time!
