belleayrelogo.jpgHighmount, N.Y.  - We have already had the first snow of the season at Belleayre and we are getting ready to Tap Into Winter for the 2010-2011 Ski Season on November 13, our anticipated opening date. Belleayre will again be offering our traditional opening day rate of $25 tickets and we will be having our annual Tap Into Winter Party if we are skiing and riding or not. Hopefully if Mother Nature cooperates, we will even have a couple of rails to jib on. Come on out and celebrate our favorite season with like-minded people who love snow. The Tap Into Winter Party happens whether we have snow or not, so come on up to the mountain for lounge specials, hors d'oeuvres, live entertainment with Bob Grimm from the Four Seasons of the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and to catch up with all of the Belleayre family members you haven't seen since spring. See you on the slopes. Early Bird Pricing for Season Passes is Still in Effect Early Bird pricing is still in effect and as an added value, when you purchase a season pass and Bring a Friend into the Belleayre Family save even more. Season pass holders who are renewing their pass and bring a new friend who buys a full adult season pass receive additional $50 off their price. Bring a senior season pass holder and receive $25 off or recruit a new family to the Belleayre experience and receive $100 off. Best Price for a Season Pass? The Thanksgiving Season Pass Deal Get the lowest possible price on Belleayre season passes and use the savings to enjoy a weekend at a local lodging establishment over Thanksgiving weekend from November 25-28. Stay in any lodging establishment that is a Belleayre Region Lodging and Tourism Association member (BRLTA) and recoup huge savings on Belleayre season passes. Skiers and snowboarders can purchase a season pass at the lowest rate Belleayre has offered in years by staying for two nights over Thanksgiving weekend at a BRLTA hotel/motel or keep their holiday house less crowded by having their relatives stay at a local establishment. How: A customer books a two night stay with a BRLTA member hotel for the Thanksgiving holiday from November 25 - 28th, 2010. At check in, the customer is given a receipt by the BRLTA member. The customer brings the receipt to a Belleayre Guest Services Desk by November 30, 2010 and can purchase 2010-11 Season Passes at the Super Early Bird Lowest Possible Rate one last time. That's only $540 for a full season pass with no blackout dates! And there's no limit to number of Super Early Bird passes customer can purchase so long as their receipt reflects a 2 night stay at a BRLTA member during the November 25-28 period.
