belleayrelogo.jpgHighmount, N.Y. - Conditions are perfect on the slopes of the Belleayre Ski Center and besides the great skiing and riding, there are plenty of other attractions in store this January at New York's Winter Snow Park. On Wednesdays, Belleayre offers $20 lift tickets with $10 rentals all month long. This will lead into the annual Winter Festival Week at the end of the month where lift tickets will be $20 and rentals $10 from January 25th through 29th. This Friday, Belleayre will again offer Customer Appreciation Day with $25 lift tickets. What a great way to start the long, holiday weekend. Speaking of weekends, don't miss the Belleayre Cup Race this Saturday with prizes being awarded for a variety of age groups for both men and women.  On Sunday, the United Way of Ulster County will be hosting a charity event. The first 200 guests who donate $10 to the United Way of Ulster County will receive a coupon for a $25 lift ticket good for that day only. Donation tables will be set up in the Garden Room of the Overlook Lodge and next to the Guest Service Desk in the Discovery Lodge. Make your reservations for the 7th Annual Taste of the Town on Monday, January 25th at the Discovery Lodge. This year's theme is "Murder on the Mountain," a murder, mystery dinner.

This year's Snowball Dinner and Dance will be held Saturday, January 30th in the Discovery Lodge.
