There are also a few communities in the area that set up sledding areas when there has been some snowfall. For example, the Town Hall in Beech Mountain has a sled area for children. Since Beech Mountain has a nice elevation, they enjoy several inches of natural snowfall each year. There is also a free youth sledding hill outside of the Beech Mountain Resort. Since it has been outfitted with a snowmaking machine, it always has snow when the temperature is suitable.
