Leap Year Snow Day

Snow Report For:
Thursday, February 29, 2024

Lock in your day on the slopes by purchasing your lift ticket online! If tickets sell out online, they will not be sold in-person at the window. 


Happy Leap Year!  Every four years, we’re treated to an extra day of winter. To mark this special occasion, will be celebrating February 29th with $29 lift tickets from 12:30 pm to 4 pm! During the overnight hours, our dedicated grooming team were making laps up and down the trails across all of the open terrain for us. Under our feet we will be finding loose granular and frozen granular surface conditions throughout the mountain. Getting us to the 48 open trails will be the usual suspects – the Belleayre Express, Kaatskill Katerpillar, Overlook Quad, Catskill Thunder Gondola, Lightning Quad, and the Hawk Quad.  Please note we will be seeing some gusty winds throughout the day which could affect lift operations.

The temperature this morning at the base lodge is a crisp 17 degrees beneath mostly cloudy skies. As the day progresses, we expect the temperatures to climb to a high of 26 degrees in the afternoon. While there’s a slight chance of flurries or snow showers, the main forecast is going to be clouds with westerly winds ranging from 20 to 30 mph, with higher gusts possible.

If you’ve been waiting, be ready… 24/25 Season Passes are getting prepped to go on sale March 6!  But before that happens, you may want to take advantage of our Leap Year Snow Day Special on February 29th with $29 afternoon lift tickets.  That’s right – you can hit the slopes from 12:30pm until 4:00pm for just $29.
