Better in Belleayre, Check out the Highest Resort in the Catskills

The Catskills just keep getting better, and we’re always looking to bring the best of of the bunch to the NYC Snow Scene. Are you looking to get higher, faster, further? Enter Belleayre, with some of the most vast mountain improvements we’ve ever seen, this Catskills mainstay is starting to rise to the top. After all, it is the highest resort in the Catskills.

No doubt, their quick ascension is in part due to their new gondola, the only gondola in the area, THE THUNDER! For years, weekenders have complained about crowding and lift lines… but not so much at Belleayre where The Thunder Gondola hits an uphill capacity of 2000 riders and skiers per hour, while also offering foot passengers a lift to scenic views from the mountain top.

Belleayre Mountain is the highest ski resort in the Catskill Mountains. With 1,045 meters, it has the highest ski slope and the highest ski lift in the Catskill Mountains.

Enjoy your winter with a trip to OvRride Belleayre. 50 trails, parks and glades, a vertical drop of 1,404 feet, 8 lifts and 4 lodges (including the brand new this season Discovery Lodge… whether you’re a beginner or an expert you’ll find good times! They have it all, from easy green runs to the bumps and glades of the expert terrain, without the crowds you may have come to accept.
