HIGHMOUNT, New York — Belleayre Mountain, aware of the tough economic times, is sensitive to the needs of the market place. With this in mind Belleayre is proud to announce its continuing effort to provide affordable opportunities not only to benefit skiers and riders but the local economy as well. Belleayre’s recent cooperative effort with the Ulster County, Delaware County, and Central Catskill Chambers of Commerce as well as the Belleayre Region Lodging and Tourism was a remarkable success. Belleayre is excited to announce the launch of the Midweek Local Business BOGO that will be good from January 20 through the rest of the 2008-2009 skiing and riding season.
From January 20 through the end of the 2008-2009 skiing and riding season, midweek skiers and riders are encouraged to bring any a receipt for $50.00 or more for a purchase of goods or services made between January 20 and the end of the 2008-2009 skiing and riding season at any local businesses that are members of the Delaware County, Ulster County, or Central Catskills Chambers of Commerce, or the Belleayre Region Lodging and Tourism Association and Belleayre will sell the customer a midweek Buy One Get One Free ticket to return any midweek day during the 2008-2009 ski season. (The first lift ticket must be used the same day that it is purchased.) Black out dates are January 26-30 during $20 Winter Festival Week and the remaining Customer Appreciation Days, February 13 and March 13. The package covers all ages from adult to toddler, but BOGO’s can only be redeemed for the same type ticket as originally purchased. In an effort to create continual area purchases, the package has been broken down into monthly redemption periods. Receipts for purchases in January must be presented in January to be honored, and so on for February and March.
