Once again, changes at Belleayre Ski Center are causing anxiety among the locals.
The ski center is owned by New York State, but last fall its operation was handed over to the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), which made it clear that there would be adjustments made in the operation of the facility.
Within a month of taking over, ORDA angered Town of Shandaken officials by dismantling the town’s long running ski program, which gave residents deep discounts on lift tickets, ski lessons and rental equipment.
