I have skiied here once before. I was there on March 10th and ski conditions were great with no lift lines. There is no place like this place. It is 2.5 hours away from New York Metro area. As a result almost everybody pulls in at Belleayre which you have to pass on the way. The plusses are 34 trails with only 2 non high speed lifts. This means a wonderful amount of elbow room on the slopes. Many slopes do not have snow making so you can't just decide to go here. You have to to wait until real snowfall. My only complaint is that everybody brings there full pile of junk into the lodge from their car and then leaves it piled high on top of and underneath every single table in the lodge. As a result when you come into the lodge for lunch there is no place to sit down and eat since all of the tables are empty of people but unusable due to the massive pile of personal stuff piled on top of and beneath the tables.
