Belleayre Conditions

From Jason:

"I skied Bell today.

Hard and icy in the A.M. Soft and dreamy in the afternoon.

I poached Cathedral Brook, it skied like a dream.."

Thanks Harv!!!
Around 11:30 the sun started to peak out and the conditions went from ok to great. All the trails still have full coverage and the woods too. Off trail was just too firm...

April 9 2011 Tons of snow left great late morning conditions a little mushy in the afternoon.

Re: Belleayre Conditions

This video is from Saturday. Nice patch!



Can any Belle experts identify the trail?

Onteora I think is the trail next to Mohawk and Yahoo on the other side.

From the Belleyare Facebook Page:

"Snowmaking begins tonight which means opening day is around the corner."

And from the website:

Belleayre Conditions

Bell received around 2" on Friday night.  Nightmare ride to the mountain, I guess NYS only has one plow truck to hand the entire NYS Thruway.. Crowds were light . The new snow did nothing to improve the conditions. Any slope   that had any pitch was a tilted ice rink..Lower angled stuff was just hard packed and edgeable...
 The temps never got out of the upper teens , they only hand 4 snow guns running ,on Upper Bell run???
