Hopefully have a new job by Ski season so I can actually you know, have time to Ski.
Good luck!  Are you going to stay in upstate NY?

Between buying a house and still recovering from the DVT I got last season I'm not sure how much skiing I'm going to be done this season but hopefully I'll see you at K or Gore

Re: Ski plans for next season?

I'm considering a Ski-3 this season. I've had a peak pass the last few seasons which was a no-brainer for a young adult at 399 even if I only get to Hunter or other peak resorts like 5 times or so. It's looking like that might not be an option this year.

Of course Plattekill.

The ski3 is a tough decision for me because Gore is just far enough away for m that I may not get up there as much as I'd like. Belleayre is close, but so is Plattekill.  I'm limited to mostly weekends this season, so Hunter, and other busier congested places are not going to be an option.

Does anyone have any experience with Belleayre on weekends? Is it congested? long lift lines? TBH, I have only been there once on a weekend and that was in 2010, so I don't remember clearly.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

I go to Belleayre for day trips on my ski3 when not driving to Gore some weekends. The Gondola  pulled the crowds to that side opening up the the Superchief side. Avoid Deer run which is  very congested on Holidays and weekends. Rest of mountain no problem.
 Belleayre keeps some trails natural and has plenty of moguls including low angle.
 If is was Belleayre only against Plattekill , Plattekill would win every time, but adding Gore and Whiteface, B ain’t bad for fill in at no extra cost.
Want to spend special time with your children, teach them to ski or snowboard. The reward will be endless!

Hoping to, but we'll see what happens. Not a ton of opportunities up here.

Def see you at K and Gore!

Still plan on skiing Gore and WF
McCauley?
That's always on my list. I never mention it as it's a given I'll make it there at least a few times.

I can't count the number of times I've driven to the Cats, planning to ski Plattekill but when I get to Highmount, I said "ah, screw it," turn left and pull into Belle due to those additional 20 or so minutes of drive time.

I have the same problem in Utah. Over the past 20 years, a couple dozen times I've made plans to go to Powder Mountain but when I drive past Snowbasin and see all that beautiful terrain, I always turn left. Still haven't made it to PM.

Well, let this be a warning, never ski Snowbasin on a Saturday when conditions are good. You're welcome.
