Additional Activities Planned for Columbus Day Weekend

HIGHMOUNT, N.Y. — Belleayre Mountain would like to invite you to the first SkiTember Fest. The Kick off will be held at the Overlook Lodge of Belleayre Mountain on Sept. 28, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. SkiTember Fest will feature crafters, live bands, outdoor activities, a winter equipment & apparel sale, the Sky Ride, theatrical performances, a huge BBQ and more activities to be planned!

With all the hustle and bustle of festivals and activities going on in the area over Columbus Day Weekend, the Belleayre Fall Festival was moved up two weekends. By moving the festival date, the goal is to help promote the region as a whole over the two weekends so everyone can fully enjoy what the Catskills Mountains truly offer.

Over Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 12-13, Belleayre Mountain will be open with many foliage activities planned. The skyride will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for people to enjoy the spectacular colors of the foliage season, take a walk along the summit, have a picnic lunch, or just enjoy the peace and quiet. Join us out on the deck for a BBQ and live music.

The weekend will also be a great opportunity to upgrade your ski and riding gear for the 2013-’14 season. Take advantage of some super savings during the ski and apparel sale.

Both on Sept. 28 and Oct. 12-13, season passes and Snowsports programming will be on sale featuring the Ski3 Pass, Belleayre only passes and children’s and adult programming. The Ski3 Pass will give skiers and riders access to all three Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) operated mountains – Belleayre, Gore and Whiteface. The Ski3 Pass will give skiers and riders access to an unprecedented 230 trails, 800 acres of skiable terrain and over 7,300 feet of vertical. For our Belleayre skiers and riders, who don’t plan on heading north next winter, Belleayre is offering our usual array of Belleayre only passes. The ever popular season long programming for children and adults including Alpine Development, Race program, Adult Weekend Workshop and Kidscamp multi packs will also be on sale.
