HIGHMOUNT, N.Y. (AP) - An avalanche caused by a Christmas Day storm has damaged a ski resort in the Catskill Mountains.

The storm brought high winds and more than 6 inches (15 cm) of rain to the Belleayre Mountain Ski Center.

Saturated snow slid into the lodge, damaging windows and doors.

No one was injured. The center said it will be closed Saturday for repairs but plans to reopen Sunday.
