Step 2: When You Arrive at Belleayre

visitor's guide

You are finally here!  Follow these easy steps and you will be out on the slopes in no time:


1.  PARK YOUR VEHICLE

Get here nice and early.  Not only will you find a better parking space closer to the lodges, the snow is better, lift and ticket lines are shorter and more rental gear is available in the mornings too.  

During the winter, lodges open at 7:00 am, 7 days a week and the ticket windows are open by 8:15 am.  The lifts start spinning at 9:00 am and end at 4:00 pm, 7 days a week.  It is not uncommon for the lifts to be open by 8:30 am if the "all clear" is given by Ski Patrol.  

Arriving before the lifts open, you will be able to find a parking space closer to the lodges.  There are 2 main lodges at Belleayre:

The Discovery Lodge:  This is the first lodge that you will find coming up the access road and is the main lodge for all beginner/novice skiers.  The Discovery Lodge is where all private/group lessons and Kidscamp leave from.  The Discovery Rental Center/Rossignol Experience Center is also located at this lodge and is the only place on the mountain where you can rent equipment.  

Overlook Lodge:  Continue past the Discovery Lodge and make the next left, continue up the access road and you will find the Overlook Lodge.  The Overlook Lodge services intermediate/expert terrain and lifts.  If you have equipment and don't need a lesson, this is the lodge you want to arrive at.

If you cannot find a parking spot close to the lodge, feel free to unload your gear at our 5-minute turnaround areas in front of the Discovery and Overlook Lodges.  These areas are for drop off/pick up only and long term parking is not allowed.  Vehicles left unattended will be towed.  

If you don't want to walk to the lodges from the parking lot, make your way to one of the shuttle stops. The Belleayre Shuttle Service runs continuously between the Discovery and Overlook Lodges, plus through all of the parking lots.    


2.  STORE YOUR BELONGINGS

Looking for a place to stash your stuff?  Both lodges have coin operated lockers.  Discovery Lodge has lockers located on the lower level next to the Tiger Den Nursery and in the Discovery Rental Center.  The Overlook Lodge lockers are located in the Garden Room and free cubbies are located in the Great Room of the Overlook Lodge too.  You can also leave your bags under tables.  Please do not leave belongings on the tops of the tables to make room for customers who wish to use the tables.  


3.  FIRST TIMERS

If you are new to the sport of sking and snowboard, it can be a little daunting on where to begin.  There are several different types of tickets, packages, lessons and rentals that can be purchased.  To help sort things out, we have put together a Beginner's Guide that can guide you in the right direction of what you need.  If you don't find what you are looking for in our Beginner's Guide, you can always email or call us at 845-254-5600 and we can answer all your questions.  


4.  RENTING EQUIPMENT

If you need to rent equipment or forgot your gear at home, we have you covered.  Make your way to the Discovery Rental Center located next to the Discovery Lodge for all your rental needs.  All minors under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian on premises to sign the rental release form.  Please note:  Belleayre does not rent clothing or goggles but if you need some great gear, stop off in one of our retail shops to get the latest and hottest outwear!
