SUMMER PROJECTS

The summer will be bringing some exciting projects to Belleayre.  Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced $8-million in the New York State Budget to enhance Belleayre's current facilities with the installation of a high-speed gondola, multiple lodge expansions and the addition of modern amenities for the lodges.  Stay up to date on the summer projects by visiting the Belleayre Website.

PLANNED MOUNTAIN ENHANCEMENTS:

Gondola - “Catskill Thunder” will be comprised of 60 cabins that will transport up to 8 adult guests per cabin at a maximum speed of 1000 feet per minute. Patrons will be able to load the gondola just above the Discovery Lodge and ride it to the peak of the mountain just towards the east side of the Tomahawk Lift. This project is slated to be completed by December of 2017.  The Gondola will also allow for future cross-country skiing across the summit, year round scenic rides, lift serviced mountain biking and wedding & party rentals at the summit.  
Snowmaking - In addition to past enhancements of our snowmaking system, we will continue to replace existing lines to create more efficient snowmaking capabilities. We will also be purchasing additional low energy snow guns which will allow us to run more guns at once, pump more water onto the trails using less resources and thus ensuring that will continue to be environmentally & financially more friendly and sustainable.

Regular maintenance of the grounds and facilities will take place throughout the summer.
