Now that you have parked your car, gotten your tickets, lessons and rental equipment - what do you do now?
Purchase in advance: You can buy lift tickets, Kidscamp, private lessons and some Lift/Lesson/Rental packages in advance of your trip. If you are staying for more than one day, purchase multi-day tickets and rentals to save some extra cash and avoid the lines the following day.
Arrive Early: The best snow conditions are in the morning and less crowds at the lifts and ticket windows. Extra bonus, the lifts will open earlier if the "all clear" is given before 9:00 am. It is not unheard of lifts opening up at 8:30 am.
Head to the West Side: Some people say the west side is the best place to ski or ride at Belleayre. Deer Run, Dot Nebel and the Dreamcatcher Glade are just to name a few trails to find some fun. The easiest way to get to the west side is taking the Catskill Thunder Gondola, located at the base of the Discovery Lodge. If you find yourself at the Overlook Lodge, you can avoid traversing across the top of the mountain by taking the Tomahawk Crossing trail directly to the Tomahawk Quad Lift. Unload at mid-station on Lift #7 and bear to the right to Tomahawk Crossing or from the Superchief Quad, follow Howes Highway to Tomahawk Crossing.
