HIGHMOUNT, New York — After the snow storms finally subsided, Belleayre Mountain went from having 17 trails to 30 trails open. The latest terrain includes the cross country trails, Belleayre Run Glade, and Cathedral Brook. The $25 Lift Ticket on Christmas Day is a perfect time to check out all this fresh powder. Holiday rates do not go into effect until Thursday, December 25th. That means regular mid-week rates are in effect on Christmas Eve Day.

New this season, Belleayre Mountain will be opening a Demo Center on Friday, December 26th in the Overlook Lodge thanks to a partnership between Blue Sky Sports and Jimmy’s Belleayre Ski Shop.

Customers can test out as much gear as their legs can handle plus take a group lesson from one of Belleayre Mountains highly trained instructors.
