The perfect conditions resulted in a record setting weekend for skier visits in March and Belleayre is poised to operate well into spring. From bumps to groomers to glades to terrain parks, Belleayre is 100% open and in optimum shape.  And between runs there is nothing like relaxing with friends on the deck of Overlook Lounge with DJ Heat providing the tunes as the tasty smell of BBQ fills the air. Saturday, March 13 is the next Clear Channel Slope Spies day at Belleayre Mountain. Sign up for free sticker at the Clear Channel Slope Spies tent in front of Overlook Lodge to participate. Put the sticker in visible place, hit the slopes and get spotted by a Clear Channel representative. If you are spied on the slopes you will be registered to win all sorts of great ski gear. The Annual Belleayre Ski Patrol BBQ is Saturday evening at 6:30pm. After a day of skiing and riding, plan to stay to support the Belleayre Ski Patrol at this classic fun fundraising party. With food by Brooks Chicken BBQ, entertainment provided by Blues Maneuvers and a raffle with many prizes, it doesn't get any better and it's for a great cause.
