Belleayre happens to be a wonderfull mountain to ski at. Almost all of their trails are open and their instructors are very nice and helpfull. The mountain has trails for all skill levels and is very easy to get around. The crowds on saturdays are no where near other resorts and although sometimes there can be a little lift line, but nothing more than five or ten mineutes. Belleayre is definatley worth a try. Their trails are well groomed, and have a variety including mogouls. There are two major sides of the mountain. Belleayre has a total of 1 tripple lift, 2 quads, and 1 two person lift. Along with two tote ropes as well. If your learning how to ski for the first time, belleayre is the place to go. They have a learning circle for beginners with a great deal and very nice staff. Lift tickets are not very expensive, and the people that ski there in general tend to be very nice. Lodge is very nice with a rustic type feel.
