Two private sector ski areas in the region are once again leveling charges of unfair ticket promotions against state-owned Belleayre Mountain Ski Center.
Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountain, both located in Greene County, and who vie for the same skiers that Belleayre does, researched Belleayre’s records and discovered that for the past two ski seasons Belleayre has given away about 10 percent of its lift tickets for free.
Out of 169,000 skiers last season 16,000 were given free tickets. The season prior 16,700 got free tickets.
