New deal for skiers in the east

Posted By: The Ski Channel on November 9, 2009 9:59 am

For our friends on the east coast (and everyone else who feels like traveling to the east coast this season), we recommend you take advantage of this new deal coming out of the Catskill ski areas in New York.

The Catskill Association for Tourism Services is teaming up with 5 ski resorts—Belleayre, Hunter, Windham, Plattekill and Holiday Mountain. For this season, they’re offering a card you can purchase that would give you 20% off lift tickets at each resort. This card, called the CATS card, can be used at any of the resorts for an unlimited number of times, and it only costs 25 bucks. You can buy the card  starting December 1st at or by calling (800) NYS-CATS (697-2287).

Here’s what Belleayre’s Director of Marketing, Jonathan King had to say: “Skiers and riders from the metro New York region should realize some of the best skiing in the East is closer than they might think. People can be on the slopes in little more than two hours from home and skiing locally cuts down on expenses and travel time spent in a car or on a plane. Belleayre is excited to be partnering with the Catskill region’s ski areas to raise awareness and create a buzz about skiing and snowboarding in New York State.”

OK New York, start spreading the news, and get out to the Catskills! (oh, cheesy cheesy reference right there)
