Town of Beech Mountain 2010-2011 Fall & Winter Recreation Program Guide Elevate Your Recreation!

On the cover….. These pictures were provided by Jason Powell. Both were taken on beautiful Beech Mountain. The first is looking over the 10th tee at the Beech Mountain Golf Course at sunrise during the early fall. The second was taken at Klonteska on top of the mountain near Town Hall in January of last winter. Fall and winter clearly provide gorgeous scenery and both are great seasons to be on Beech!
