    Answer NO.

    There is no lift ticket booth anymore at bottom of Tomahawk Lift 8. Drop someone off to get tickets at Discovery lodge and have them take the shuttle over to Tomahawk lift 8 parking lot. Bring lawn chair to boot up in the Tomahawk parking lot and avoid the lodge. Should be warm enough to tail gate party in the parking lot this weekend.

    At Belleayre I would recommend parking down at the lower Discovery Lodge. Get the folks that want to ski green trails going down their. When ready to ski the blues I would take the shuttle bus from the Discovery lodge parking lot over to Tomahawk lift 8 . Take the Tomahawk lift 8 to the top and ski the easy Deer Run trail. This avoids the HSQ Superchief lift 6 which will have longer lift lines this weekend. To ski back to both either upper Overlook or lower Discovery lodge from Lift 8 you need to get off at midstation to take blue intermediate trails back.

    For rentals I would recommend Potter Brothers in Kingston right off the NY State Thruway.


    Many good large hotels to stay in Kingston, NY

    Plus you can save some money on lift tickets as well....

    Thanks. I was afraid of that. Will be hard to drop someone off when I will probably be solo on Monday I'll see how it is when I get there. Maybe park in Tomahawk and boot up there, then take shuttle to the lodge to get tickets and just start on the Superchief side and work my way towards the west side as the day goes on. Unless I get there early enough where I can just park closer to the Overlook lodge.

    You got to do better than. We need a trip report with all the details. Pictures would be nice added touch.
