Pros: Terrain, small crowds, price, friendly staff

Cons: nightlife, lodging

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 a hour after this place opens. Killington's Bear mountain (Skyeburst, Wildfire) starts off groomed and is bumped and icy by 11 AM due to high traffic. 4-5 hours later, Plattekill's trails are still smooth with packed powder. The lifts are slower but they make it up in time to the summit by not having to travel a long run out. I will go again.

Pros: Good Vertical, Great Mountain Feeling, Unbeatable Terrain, Wonderful Terrain, No Lift Lines, Best Glades in the Catskills, Homey lodge

Cons: Lifts could be a bit quicker but, who is in a rush! This mountain you never have a lift line

Our video "Catskill Heaven" should some this place up

 

 

 

A change of weekend plans allowed us to check out a mountain we have heard great things about. That mountain you ask is Plattekill Mountain which is located deep in the heart of the Catskills in Roxbury, New York.  

 

Plattekill Mountain is often referred to as the Mad River Glen of the Catskills and is known to offer the most varied terrain for skiers and boarders within 3 hours of New York City.

 

For years we opted to ski more convenient mountains like Hunter and Windham or at times drive longer and further North to other ski areas; sadly and always passing this mountain up. This time, our opportunity came and we decided to make the drive and too see if this mountain would feel and ski like Mad River Glen, which is arguably one of our most favorite mountains in the East. 

 

Upon our arrival we were greeted by all the staff and right away we felt at home. This place was inviting to all and the mountain though not the biggest, offered some nice looking, steep and long face runs and you could see there were many trails stemming off them. One run could become 3 when you count all the glades and bike trail that you are allowed to ski (at your own risk). 

 

After two full days of skiing, meeting some of the coolest and hardcore skiers, teles-skiers, boarders in the New York City area, we would say hands down, this is the best mountain to ski in the Catskills, followed by Belleayre then Hunter following with Windham.  

 

This is a ski mountain and not a resort. There is nothing fancy about the mountain but, it has so much more charm than many of the other places we have visited.  Belleayre has that feeling too.

 

Naturally this is our opinion and we love Hunter and Windham too, though I will say that with all the years of my skiing at these mountains, we have not ever been greeted and accepted and incorporated into the family the way Plattekill has.  A very close second would be Belleayre in the same area.

Pros: Powder,no crouds, not open during week

Cons: slow lifts, Kind of far, not much snowmaking

Plattekill is the MRG of New York.  Because P-kill isn't open during the week you can find fresh powder on saturdays and sundays.  Not much snowmaking so you have to go when it snows.  Good glades if you know where to look. Overall, I like plattekill
