After 15 years and countless hurdles the final approvals have been granted. It looks like highmount ski center will be resurrected and maybe some economic life brought back to the local Catskill community.
At its peak the Catskills and Delaware county had 10K hotel / motel beds for nightly visitor's. At present Delaware county can house less than 1200. Although not a hotel room will be built in Delaware county - its REAL close.
If you never skied highmount it might be a reason to revisit Belleayre in a few years.
