Belleayre Mountain (Pine Hill, NY, USA)

The ultimate snow lover's paradise

Belleayre Mountain is a winter lover's paradise. Packed with more than just snow, the mountain is a swirling paradise of parks and trails. The peak extends to over 1,400 feet, with multiple lifts along the way designed to simplify the process if you're new to the experience. For longtime snow lovers, though, it's a chance to settle into the comfort of a Belleayre Mountain vacation rental, gaze outside the window, and enjoy spectacular views reminiscent of a pristine ski lodge.

Wintering (and summering) in Belleayre Mountain

Since 1949, Belleayre Mountain has been one of New York's premier spots for skiing, with upgraded equipment and gorgeous slopes that make it easy to enjoy skiing and snowboarding. After you're done for the day, pop into one of the mountain eateries to enjoy a bite to eatÑyou'll find everything from snack bars to barbecues to pubs. Of course, you can enjoy Belleayre Mountain in the summer, too. Go for a swim, rent a kayak, or grab a mountain bike and take to the terrains. The Fall Festival is an annual event filled with crafts, live music, shopping, and great food.

On the tracks to Belleayre Mountain history

The Empire State Railway Museum, about 15 miles from the mountain, offers a fascinating peek at the Catskill Mountain Railroad system. If you're interested in area history, it's worth escaping your Belleayre Mountain vacation rental for a few hours and making the trek to the nearby Shandaken Historical Museum. You'll find beautifully maintained rooms packed with fascinating artifacts. Just under an hour east of the mountainous area, you'll encounter the Opus 40 Sculpture Park and Museum. You'll be awed by the underground pathways and massive sculptures that dot the grounds.

The white stuff falls in Belleayre Mountain

Winter in Belleayre Mountain is a special time, particularly for those who can't get enough of brisk chills and thick, powdery snow. The season offers over 100 days of endless ski conditions, and typically averages over 150 inches of the white stuffÑsometimes even more. Ski season runs from November through April, while the rest of the year offers temperate conditions that are ideal for a stroll by the water or relaxing on the sand. Whether you favor the intense summer sunshine or the cool breeze of spring, you'll encounter both when you book a Belleayre Mountain vacation rental.

When beaches and mountains collideÉ

At the foot of Belleayre Mountain sits Belleayre Beach. Not only does it provide a beautiful contrast in nature, but it also offers the best of seaside life, including a plush, sandy beach. You'll enjoy phenomenal views from any Belleayre Mountain vacation rental, particularly of the sunrise and sunset. In between mountain and ocean, there are plenty of other opportunities to take advantage of the area's stunning geography. You can hike the over 2.5-mile loop of Cathedral Glen, which takes you through thick forest, or even enjoy a swim in the 6-acre Pine Hill Lake.
