Nice Powder Surprise

A February 2005 trip to Highmount by SkiBum420

Quote: I headed on down to Belleayre to meet up with a few buddies who were ballsy enough to camp out in the lean-to overnight. Needless to say, they definitely got first tracks. There was more than 6 includes of powder.

Belleayre Mountain

Attraction | "Belleayre"

This place is super. It's got a little bit of everything for every type of boarder/skier. The fall lines past the mid-stations are pretty sweet. We went and hiked Cathedral Brook before lunch, and there was still a ton of snow there. Quite a few folks won't even try to get to a trail if a lift doesn't take them there. That’s why this place is a hidden gem. We ended up doing Cathedral four times that day, but on one run we were seriously lovin' the powder and kept going to the bottom even though we knew we'd have to make a good hike back to the base where the list is. SO WORTH IT!!!
