HIGHMONT, NY ??вЂќ A lack of natural snow did not keep Santa Claus from his appointed rounds on Christmas Eve but Santa knows that Belleayre Mountain snowmakers have been working around the clock for the past two days to provide premium conditions for holiday guests. After an exhausting evening of Christmas Eve rounds, a most deserving Santa Claus unwinds on the slopes with the Beast of Belleayre before his journey back to the North Pole.

Undaunted by last week’s deluge, Santa comments, “No need for alarm. All you well behaved skiers and snowboarders have all the snow you need right here. The Belleayre Mountain snowmakers and groomers deserve a pat on the back.”
Record-breaking Christmas day attendance attests to a job well done.
