I have been skiing Belleayre for more than 30 years and it just keeps getting better without ever getting too big. The new Superchief Express Quad gets you to the top in no time, and there's a good variety of trails to ski from there. I also like the west side trails off of Tomahawk Quad which tend to be less crowded. The snowmaking and grooming are top-notch and the view from the summit is breath taking. I believe the newly announced acquistion of the old Highmount Ski Area will make Belleayre even better, and it will become a true "destination" resort. Owned and operated by the DEC of NY State, you get a less commercial feeling than other ski areas, and that it is environmentally friendly. I look forward to another 30 years skiing at Belleayre.
