Belleayre Mountain, New York's Winter Snow Park and Nature's Theme Park is located off County Route 28, just hours from New York City, was declared “Forever Wild” by the New York State Forest Preserve in 1885. Early on, Skiers would side-step or hike their way more than 3,000 feet to be the first to make tracks down unnamed and woody trails. But since it’s first lifts were installed in 1949, each new year has brought improvements. Belleayre now stands as a model in the ski industry. It’s continued improvements include the Catskills’ only Cat-access sking and a widened and improved halfpipe and Area 51 Terrain Park. Skier visits have grown from 70,000 in 1995 to more than 175,000 skiers and riders from over 40 States and even parts of Europe. With 47 trails, parks and glades and 8 lifts, including our new High Speed Quad, Belleayre Mountain has certainly evolved from humble, yet promising beginnings into an efficient and growing organization - perfection in progress.
