Whiteface/Lake Placid

Whiteface/Lake Placid

“True Adirondack skiing with Olympic tradition. The greatest vertical in East Coast. What else could I say? if you live in East coast you have to come to whiteface once in your life. First of all, it has the highest vertical in east and due to the average grade, the mountain looks huge when you enter the resort. The gondala is convenient but only takes you to the summit of little whiteface, from...” --Partizan Turks

Hunter Mountain

Hunter Mountain

“ Growing up on the east coast I always found Hunter Mountain to have the best variety of terrain in the Catskills.  It is a rather steep mountain with plenty of bumps to keep the advanced skier entertained.  They are known for making a ton of snow and usually boast the largest base in the area.  Some years the conditions are absolutely fantastic.  Other years, when...” --HippieFlippinNM

Holiday Valley

Holiday Valley

“We have skied Holiday Valley several times in the past few years. It's always risky deciding when to plan a trip, as the weather is so variable here. That being said, when there is "decent" snow, this is a great place. It is frustrating when the crowd is smaller that not all lifts are running but that it is understandable. The trail maps at the top of the lifts could be improved upon and...” --barbi

Ski Plattekill Mountain

Ski Plattekill Mountain

“ First time there this weekend. I can't believe I have skiid Hunter and Killington  so many times and have never come to this place. While Hunter's claim to fame is blowing lots of snow, this place doesnt need to blow as much. The reason is that, it doesnt get skiid off. While grooming tracks are gone in 10 minutes at Hunter and Killington, you can find fresh courdoroy even...” --Vermonster

Belleayre Mountain

Belleayre Mountain

“Belleayre is the quintessential Catskills skiing area. Nothing too steep or too bumpy here, so you can basically take your family all over the mountain if they're not beginners. As usual if you stay off the beaten path, there's fresh soft snow to be found. This day the conditions were great, the snow was soft, and the lift lines were short. Good day on the mountain. If you're looking for a wild...” --IceCoast

Bristol Mountain

Bristol Mountain

“Bristol mountain is where I learnt skiing. I went grad school in Rochester and never skied in my life until Bristol. Very conveniently located near Rochester, about 40 minutes drive. It offers a terrain, most of it is beginner and intermediate level trails but there are couple top to bottom steeper runs. almost all trails have night skiing availability and they do have 23$ Saturday night deal...” --Partizan Turks

Gore Mountain

Gore Mountain

“ Gore is definitely underappreciated outside New York.  The mountain has a couple of reasonably steep trails (Rumor, Lies), a couple of tight, twisty, ungroomed double-diamonds (Upper Darby and Lower Steilhang) and lots of nice glades that range from beginner (Otter Slide), to intermediate (Tahawus-very pretty), to reasonably challenging (Mine Shaft and others), to more...” --Ski the East

Windham Mountain

Windham Mountain

“Great spot in the Catskills, worth visiting for sure if you're in the area. Took my 8 year old and we blazed blue runs all day. Had a great day. Was a weekday so not crowded. This is probably the "sleekest" resort in the Catskills, with the most modern renovations, etc.  ” --IceCoast

Lifts are in great shape.Very cool resort!!!!” --burndust

Mount Peter

Mount Peter

“Small area that's good for taking the family out for some quick runs or night skiing near home. This little mountain tries hard, but bring some snacks, the food is overpriced.  ” --IceCoast
