SUMMER ACTIVITIES BEGIN JULY 14
 
WELCOME TO SUMMER AT BELLEAYRE

 
Happy Summer Everyone!

The dog days of summer have arrived in the Catskill Mountains and the summer of 2018 is only going to get better with all of the activities we have planned for the upcoming summer months starting on July 14th!  We have added a couple of new activities this summer including scenic gondola rides to the summit of Belleayre, an introductory mountain biking tour across the ridge, and mountain bike rentals.  Plus, we will be jamming out to the live music and filling our tummies with some delicious BBQ that is smoked right here at the mountain.  Come on up and enjoy all the festivities! 
LET THE ACTIVITIES BEGIN . . . 

MOUNTAIN BIKING, BIKE RENTALS, & INTRODUCTORY SCENIC TOURS ACROSS THE RIDGE 
NEW FOR 2018 - If you are an experienced rider or if you're new to the sport, Belleayre is the perfect place to get your legs geared up for the start of the biking season.  The A & AA loops of our cross country trail system have plenty of mileage to offer riders of all levels and abilities. Visitors may bring their own bikes or rent right from us. 

You can also book one of our introductory mountain bike tours and our staff will show you everything from how to get the most out of your bike to how to conquer hills safely. You'll build confidence, learn new skills, and surprise yourself by what you're capable of doing on two wheels.  Tour includes a gondola ride up to the summit, a scenic mountain bike tour across the ridge to the old fire tower and a ride back down the gondola.  

SCENIC GONDOLA RIDES 
NEW FOR 2018 - Take the Catskill Thunder Gondola to the summit of Belleayre Mountain for breathtaking views of the Catskill Forest Preserve.  Once you’ve reached the top, you can take a walk along the summit, have a picnic lunch, or just enjoy the peace and quiet.  When you’re ready, you can either hike, or take the gondola back down.  Either way, bring your camera as you are sure to get some beautiful shots of the mountains and of the local wildlife. 

Don't forget, 18/19 winter season passes include access to Catskill Thunder for gondola rides throughout the summer during scheduled operating hours.

FREE LIVE MUSIC & WEEKEND BBQS
The BBQ festivities on the Discovery Deck will begin July 14th and will continue every weekend until September 2nd with dinner and drinks. Centerplate will be serving up some awesome BBQ food from our one of a kind smoker. 

This summer Belleayre will be having a free 6 day music series as we bring an eclectic group of performers from a variety of genres to the mountains.  On select weekends throughout the summer, the mountains will be singing from 2pm to 5pm.
 
FUN IN THE SUN AT BELLEAYRE BEACH
