Travel

Totally ’80s Retro Ski Weekend

I learned to snow ski, or rather I learned that snow skiing would not be part of my sporting life at Beech Mountain. Surprisingly, I learned in the ‘80s, so this event on February 22-25 sounded like a blast for those gifted enough to stay upright coming down a hill on two sticks. (OurStateMagazine)
