From material girls to men without hats, fans of the 1980s will flock to Beech Mountain in February for the seventh annual Totally '80s Retro Ski Weekend.

The weekend, conisting of four days of tubular awesomeness, takes place Feb. 22-25, 2018, at Beech Mountain Resort and throughout the town of Beech Mountain.

This year's festivities include live '80s music each night, retro ski fashions every day and plenty of old school activities ranging from a Rubik's Cube competition to '80s karaoke to the ever-popular Totally Retro Apparel Contest.

Vintage 1980s cars, including a Ghostbuster Ecto-mobile, will be on display in the ski village, while arcade aficionados can take a shot at the high school in the Ms. Pac Man contest. There will also be opportunites to take photos with Blake Michaels, the Carolinas' premier Bret Michaels look-alike artist.

Most attendees say the highlight of the weekend is checking out the colorful throwback ski clothes.

"You dust off all your best '80s gear and wear it on the slopse. It is awesome and fun and the pitures are worth a thousand words," says Talia Freeman, marketing director for Beech Mountain Resort. "People get so into it. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff we see."
