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
Beech Mountain has extended our skiing season until 3/25!
Please check the Beech Mountain website (https://www.beechmountainresort.com) for open dates and slope conditions.
Bring your homeschool family to Beech Mountain Ski Resort during the 2021 - 2022 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.
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.
$30 per skier/snowboarder which includes, lift ticket and equipment rental.
$10 per skier / snowboarder for beginner group lesson (optional) / Must be 8 years old or older (NO exceptions!). Please plan to tip the instructor.
$20 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 go online and complete a rental agreement form online, instead of completing the traditional paper rental agreement form at Group Sales. This form can be completed online in advance of arriving at the Group Sales Office. Please click the link below and complete a rental agreement form (only) for each person needing a rental.
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.
Riderschoice and Glenna Toney have nothing to do with the online Rental Forms on the Beech Mountain Ski Resort Website. If you have questions about Beech Mountain Rentals, contact Beech Mountain Ski Resort. Don’t call, text, or email Glenna Toney about Beech Mountain Rentals. All rental prices will be adjusted by Group Sales at Beech Mountain when you check in with them on your ski date.
Please DON’T complete any other online forms like lift ticket or lesson forms. If you complete other forms online directly with Beech Mountain, you will NOT receive the Riderschoice discount rate!
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! 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 $20 price for the lift ticket.
This is the rental link (you still need to REGISTER EACH participant, see below):
Beech Mountain Group Sales Office and Beech Mountain Ski Resort is experiencing a high volume of skiers and boarders. Some areas are congested (group sales office, rental areas, and cafeteria). Beech Mountain Resort is doing everything possible to maintain a safe environment.
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.
RIDERSCHOICE PARTICIPANTS SHOULD CONTACT GLENNA TONEY REGARDING ISSUES WITH OUR GROUP AND NOT COMPLAIN TO GROUP SALES!
828-775-7949 (text please and contact me only if an issue is urgent!)
Be thankful for this wonderful skiing opportunity!
Scheduled Ski Dates for Beech:

Please note that you will not be able to just show up at Beech and be part of the Riderschoice group deal! Glenna Toney is coordinating at Beech and Riderschoice dates are posted. Advanced registration is required.
Make plans with your family. This rate is only open to homeschoolers (including parents), their families (Including grown children). Bring proof of homeschooling and present it to Beech Mountain Group Sales upon check-in.
If you register for a ski/board date, Riderschoice and Beech Mnt. are expecting you to show up. If for some reason anyone in your group/family can't make the date you sign up for, please email Group Sales ASAP firstname.lastname@example.org Our discount rate depends on the number of participants! So be sure to keep Group Sales up-to-date on any changes in your group/family numbers.
All skiers/boarders need to arrive at Beech Mountain Group Sales between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm. PLEASE, get your money together and have ONE person in your family, carload or group bring your money to Group Sales to facilitate getting your lift tickets and rental forms in a timely manner.
Beech Riderschoice Rules:
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
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!
