Full review

I went to Belleayre for the first time with a group to visit an old friend who moved near the area. This is a place to come and just ride or ski. There is no resort feel to the place, but it is a nice mountain. The few things I can remember noting:

-Great varied terrain. I also enjoyed how they separate beginners from experts by the upper/lower mountain.

-Great learning program. A few friends took lessons. One learned to ski there and another learned to snowboard in a three day beginners package. They never left the lower mountain and never felt intimidated.

-Lift system needs upgrades.

- Friendly staff.

I hope to visit again.
