Crowds and large snowfalls create 'good' problems at Belleayre
By Joe Moskowitz
Plenty of fresh snow at just the right time. A long holiday weekend. Some people have the entire week away from work. It sounds like the perfect formula for people in the ski business. And the crowds were huge, but at Highmount’s Belleayre Ski Center on Sunday, some people thought there was too much of a good thing.
An estimated 5,000 people tried to ski or snowboard at Belleayre on Sunday. That is all the mountain can handle, but it’s not unusual for a holiday weekend. However on Sunday, the mountain didn’t handle it that well.
