During winter months, the availability of new hotel accommodations and amenities suited to the modern skier demographic will accomplish several key economic objectives. Most notably, it will transform visitation to the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center from a day-use area to a vacation destination, supporting both overnight weekend stays as well as week-long vacations.
The Belleayre Resort has been designed to offer a higher quality and scale than currently available in the region, resulting in a marked effect on all four major ski centers in the Catskill Region: Windham, Hunter, Plattekill and Belleayre. The increased awareness of the region created by the Resort will help to attract a larger percentage of skiers already traveling north from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Currently these potential guests regularly continue past the Catskills’ ski centers on the New York State Thruway, intent on spending time and money in the resorts of Vermont and New Hampshire much farther to the north.
While golf and skiing are season-specific activities, spas are a year-round, featured amenity that has become the fastest growing segment of the hotel/resort industry. Annual revenue generated by the spa industry in 2011 was $13.4 billion, up from $7.0 billion in 2003, a growth of 91 percent. The medical spa segment saw revenue grow from $234 million in 2003 to more than $1.9 billion in 2011. The Belleayre Resort will feature a full-service resort and medical spa, making it one of the only combination spas in the northeast. The proximity of the resort to non-spa related activities including golf, skiing, and outdoor adventure activities provide the resort with a well-rounded appeal to a broad market.
Increased tourism activity resulting from the Belleayre Resort will mean significant increases in tax revenue for the towns in which the resort is located. An additional benefit to the area will come in the form of jobs creation.
