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
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. 



Thank you,
