Great Skiing at Belleayre!

Yesterday morning after our Breezy Hill Inn guests had left for the slopes following their breakfast of baked french toast, yogurt with granola and blueberries, I too headed to the slopes for Christmas morning skiing. The slopes were groomed and perfect for my first day of skiing for the year. I love skiing on December 25th; there are few skiers early in the day although by noon it begins to get crowded. We met friends in the lodge and exchanged greetings but mostly we were anxious to try out our newly tuned skies. The sky was blue, the temperature just under 30 degrees and the snow was great! What more could one ask? Happy holidays and think snow!

It's snowing!

It started snowing at 11 o'clock this morning. It's been over three hours since and it hasn't let up. The folks up at Belleayre Ski Center say over two inches have accumulated in less than two hours. The ski season is projected to start tomorrow! I'm a skier who has recently taken up snowshoeing after a trip out west a couple of years ago. These Catskill mountains are perfect for snowshoeing...beautiful views and exhilarating exercise as well. So get your winter sports equipment and clothing ready and head up to the mountains!

Breezy Hill Inn is ready to greet you and make your stay comfortable. I just took a batch of banana walnut muffins out of the oven!

See you soon!
