Belleayre was excellent yesterday!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Conditions were excellent at Belleayre in the Catskills yesterday.

I did some diamonds but I wanted to work more on my technique so I did mostly blues yesterday.  Conditions were as good as they get on average.

I was in awe watching so many do the double black diamond "Yahoo" mogul run.  One day I will do that.  But I need more mogul practice and I was not going to throw myself in to that yet.

Next Saturday or the one after I'm going to get my nephew on the slopes for the first time. (With lessons.)  I hope he loves it as much as I do.

Yahoo was as good as it gets on Friday.
It snowed a few inches every night all week at Belleayre.Plus they pounded Yahoo with some man-made.
Winnisook,Onteora were perfect as well.

How crowded was it?  I hate skiing on weekends, but it's the only time I can take my son. I sneek out solo on Wednesdays, but I might take him up there next Sunday.

 Yes, I did Winnisook.  That was fun.  The moguls were small, so I could handle it well.   I believe you about Yahoo.  It looked like they had a lot of powder.   I didn't hear any scraping as people rounded those moguls.  It looked soooo tempting but I'm not ready yet.

I look forward to the moguls that eventually are under the Superchief lift.  Right now there are a little bit of bumps there for practice.

I found Seneca to be tougher than Yahoo because of the steep head wall.

Mid week ,you've got the place to yourself normaly.
Weekends ,Sunday is usually less crowded. Get there for first chair,early lunch ,then hit it again when they all head in for lunch.

 Oh I agree, I didn't see that post about how crowded it was.  I didn't think it was too crowded.  The worst of the lift lines were only a 5 minute wait.

So if you haven't been to Belleayre in the last few weeks ,you've been missing out.
The conditions have been just about perfect.
Snow making all over the Mt.and,the Bellearye cloud gives up an inch or two of snow evey night.
The Winisook Glades,you can find untracked snow almost all week.
