Snow Falling…and Snow Making!

It’s time! It’s here! Snow falling and snow making…snow is coming from all directions here in the Catskills. Tie to come slide down hills! Belleayre Ski Center Snow Report has great news as of Thursday, December 15:

Mother Nature has kicked in another inch of snow early this morning!  Between the dusting last night and the 2″ from Tuesday night will be making for some awesome riding and skiing.  We will be slip, sliding and riding on 8 trails today on a machine groomed packed powder base and 3 lifts in operation.  The groomers are showing the trails some love by making some corduroy and spreading out the piles of snow the snowmakers are leaving behind.  T-E-A-M Snowmakers have been working around the clock and are cranking it out on Lower Belleayre Run, Roaring Brook, Lower Ashokan, Discovery Way, Mohican and Easy In.  Soon we will be moving to The Canyon and Area 15.  Stay tuned, the ropes will be falling on additional terrain by this weekend!

Belleayre Ski Center Kids Camp Begins This Weekend

This weekend, their Kids Camp begins on Saturday, December 17.  Here’s more on how Kids Camp works from the Belleayre website:

Kidscamp is the perfect learn-to-ski-or-snowboard program for children with expert instruction and plenty of snow fun with other kids the same ages and abilities.   The camp is a full-day instructional program for skiers and snowboarders.  Reservations are required for the full day program.  Half day (10 am – 12 noon or 1 – 3pm only) are also available and are based on a first come first serve basis.  Registration will be from 8 to 8:30am or 12-12:30pm.

About Kidscamp: Camp runs weekends and holiday periods from 10am to 3pm and includes four hours of lessons, rentals (if needed), lift ticket, lunch and supervision for the day.   On-snow time can vary with weather, snow conditions, class dynamics and stamina.   The groups are formed according to age and ability level of your child. If you are unsure of your child’s ability level, please check our classification chart. The Belleayre staff has sole discretion to determine the group & ability level of my child(ren). Should my child not be able to perform to the previously named level, the Belleayre staff reserves the right to move my child to the appropriate level.
