It was a
true celebration of the Catskills at the 17th annual
Snowball Dinner & Dance attended by 250 guests that
took place at the Overlook Lodge on Belleayre Mountain
the last Saturday in January. The star of the evening
was the first lady of New York State, Libby Pataki.
As recipient of the “Spirit of the Catskills”award,
Mrs. Pataki remarked that this region with its beauty
and vitality have always been high on the list of New
York State’s major attractions. As a Belleayre
skier herself, she described the great pleasure she
and her family derive from skiing atthe mountain. Following
the comments of the First Lady, Superintendent Tony
Lanza explained that, thanks to the interest and financial
input of Albany and tremendous increase in skier visits
this year, Belleayre’s influence on the economy
in local communities will be very positive.
As the season
continues, from January 27-31 during Belleayre’s
Winter Festival Week all lift tickets are $10 each day.
On Rotary International Day, Sunday, February 2nd, members
of the Club enjoy a special discount. Also, on Sunday
all people in the military will be entitled to buy a
ticket for $25. If you’re planning ahead, the
next Women’s Seminar will take place on Friday,
February 7. Four hours of lessons, a group seminar led
by instructor/motivator Sue Spencer Moses, plus breakfast
and lunch...all for a total of $100! You can still ski
free on your birthday only at Belleayre. Check it out.
