Bellaeyre this Friday?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I can't stand it anymore, but I don't think paying for lodgings in Northern Vermont would be worth it- yet. Will a day trip to Belleayre from Long Island be worth it- now? I don't particularly want to ski a narrow white ribbon surrounded by brown. Anybody have the scoop? Someone please talk me into it!

It's getting chilly up here in the Catskills, so they should blow a fair amount of snow by Friday. I was at Belleayre last Thursday and they had two runs open from the top. Coverage on Onteora was better than Wanatuska, where I did see some small amounts of gravel here and there, especially on the little crossovers between trails. Wasn't bad enough for me to wish I had a pair of rock skis.

Don't know how hard Belleayre was hit by the rain this past week. My prediction is that what little is open will be pretty decent on Friday. Thus, I am going to head up there myself that morning. If you go, make sure those edges are sharp.

I'm going to skip the quad and stick to the triple. If anyone's out there early tomorrow, I'm in a blue windbreaker on my Volkls with the faux wood topsheet.
