Skiing at Belleayre was the second time I have ever skiied. My first time was at Shawnee in the Poconos the year before. As this was a snowless winter, there was only man-made snow on the trails, but it was pretty decent. Not too many icy spots. For a beginner, there are plenty of green and blue trails. I skiied...

We went to Belleayre ski area at the Catskills from December 26th to December 30th. We couldn't get any motels to stay around the area, because they were all booked up. So if you want to be close, book early. I started booking before Thanksgiving and everything was all booked up, but there aren't a lot of places to stay.... More

Visited this past weekend and was disappointed that the only snow was man-made snow. Other than that, the mountain is completely bare. There's a lot of ice as well, so beware as that can be quite unsafe. Overall, we had a nice time, but I'd suggest going further upstate if you want real snow, less ice, and more trails.

We always have fun at Belleayre.. the staff is great, no matter where you go (except maybe the bar), and they move the lines along rather quickly, even on a crowded day.. It's just a great family outing.

As a beginner snowboarder, everything was so new to me, so I don't have anything to compare to. Came here with friends and had a great time. One thing i have to say is that, the slope that says the EASIEST, slope #1 seems to be harder and the slope is more steep and i find it challenging for someone... More

I was disappointed that they no longer have "ski free on your birthday" and would not allow us to arrive a day late for the half price tix on our son's bday (and my half bday) when our son had bronchitis (and a dr's note) and needed a day before he could ski. They said there are no exceptions, ever.... More

We love this resort. Great family fun. Bar is full of friendly locals. Run's may be short but with no wait in lift lines get plenty of skiing in. Lot's of summer activities.
