Special events announced at Belleayre Mountain Ski Center

Highmount — Belleayre Mountain Ski Center has announced the launch of the Midweek Local Business BOGO (Buy One, Get One) that will be good from Jan. 20 through the rest of this skiing and riding season.
In the program, midweek skiers and riders are encouraged to bring any receipt for $50 or more for a purchase of goods or services made between Jan. 20 and the end of the 2008-2009 skiing and riding season at any local businesses that are members of the Delaware or Ulster or Central Catskills chambers of commerce, or the Belleayre Region Lodging and Tourism Association and Belleayre will sell the customer a midweek BOGO ticket to return any midweek day during the 2008-2009 ski season. (The first lift ticket must be used the same day that it is purchased.)
Black out dates are Jan. 26-30 during $20 Winter Festival Week and the remaining Customer Appreciation Days, Feb. 13 and March 13. The package covers all ages from adult to toddler, but BOGOs can only be redeemed for the same type ticket as originally purchased. In an effort to create continual area purchases, the package has been broken down into monthly redemption periods. Receipts for purchases in January must be presented in January to be honored, and so on for February and March.

Winter Festival
Belleayre Mountain is excited to announce that it’s time to celebrate winter again with Winter Festival Week from Jan. 24 to 31 with the annual Taste of the Town, the Snowball and, of course, $20 midweek lift tickets. The Kids Carnival and Torchlight Ceremony will kick off the celebration on Saturday, Jan. 24. Build a snowman (weather permitting) or compete in the obstacle course outside the Discovery Lodge from noon to 3 p.m. for prizes and giveaways. The festivities will then move to the Overlook Lodge from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. with a pizza party and entertainment. After that, Belleayre Mountain’s finest skiers and riders will create a beautiful display, which will snake down Yahoo toward the Overlook Lodge for the Torchlight Ceremony starting around 5:45 p.m. DJ Wavy Davy will be rocking the Overlook Lounge on Saturday, Jan. 24.
In an effort to make skiing and snowboarding accessible to the masses and stimulate the local economy, Belleayre Mountain will be offering $20 lift tickets during Winter Festival Week from Monday, Jan. 26 through Friday, Jan. 30.
Don’t miss the most delicious event of the season happening in the Discovery Lodge at Belleayre Mountain on Monday, Jan. 26. Sample local culinary delights and partake in Margaritas on the Mountain starting at 6:30 p.m. Bring your salsa shoes as Belleayre Mountain’s own DJ Wavy Davy spins Latin music all night long. Gather a party of your favorite people together and reserve a table or come with your special someone for food, dancing and fiesta fun including piñatas! Tickets are $30 per person and available in the Overlook Lodge at the Lodging Information Booth or by calling Belleayre at 254-5600, extension1361.
Winter Festival week ends with what is always the premier event of the season, the 23rd Annual Snowball. On Jan. 31 the Coalition to Save Belleayre cordially invites you to attend this benefit for the Belleayre Music Festival.
