  • Belleayre ski resort in my opinion is somewhat of a hidden gem near the Hudson valley . Being only an hour from Kingston or about 2 1/2 from nyc it’s quite accessible for even a one day ski trip . Wit...  more »

  • I just loved it. I really was surprised at the amount of slopes they had and of how long they were. The costumer service there is just amazing. My friend got injured and their ski patrol service was perfect. They have great skiing for all levels. I suggest renting equipment at a nearby shop down the road called Belleayre ski rentals. I really suggest you go there, it's better than the other ones in the area
  • The skiing is great for the Catskills but the upper lodge is always crowded. If you don't ski, plan on standing around. The food is basic burgers and pizza. The 'bar' is a window where you can get beer. No cell service and the WiFi is spotty. On the mountain, glades are limited so if you're looking for a good terrain park, other mountains would be better. There are challenging runs and they have a ski school. It's close to NYC, the traffic on good weekends is incredible, and there are speed traps all over the place. Be careful getting there.
  • Let me begin by saying how thankful my family was to manager 'Sean' for going above and beyond to take care of our needs as first timers. Although, we did not have reservations for our 3 day lessons, he accommodated us. Our daughter had a blast!. Boots and equipment personnel is sharp. But make sure you get the right size for the boots. Kids camp staff is kind. The only uncomfortable moment was when we try to buy the lesson package on site, and faced cold shoulders from the staff until manager Sean changed all of that and saved our family vacation. Please make reservations (must pay in advance) to avoid headaches. Also, you MUST arrive 1 hour earlier than your lesson, specially if you are not familiar with the place. The only reason I do not give it a 5 stars is because the food sold at the premises is very very expensive and there was an employee smoking while working. Other than that, the instructors are very nice, but the directions vary among them. trails are well kept. Gondola is a must try. It will be helpful if they issue a report card for those taking lessons, and also a survey about our overall experience. We plan to come back next year
  • I enjoy Belleayre. The staff is always friendly. The trails are mostly nice and wide which is great if it happens to be a crowded day. Really great place to go especially if conditions are good, which they were this past weekend. Parking is also convenient, but be sure to get there early for it to be so convenient. Quick walk the lodge ticket booth.
  • I loved the trails and how they were set up. As a snowboarder, I was able to practice the moguls without practically dying. They were a manageable size. There's a nice gondola, a good amount of lifts, and some lifts have midstations. The terrain park looked pretty cool with different levels of features. There was a really cool bridge you can ride on that goes over the road leading to the parking area. The views on the mountain were absolutely gorgeous! There were multiple lodges and parking areas which is super convenient. The employees were very friendly as well
