Hello, my name is mountain

 

You know a ski day is good when you get two pictures. Both of me shot by someone else. It means I didn’t stop and shoot. I couldn’t, and there were so many things I wanted to take a picture of. Here in list form (click the read more button below to see it).

The Diamond does Platty

 

While just about everything in the Hudson Valley is being labeled “the New Brooklyn,” we can promise you Platty is not the “new” anything. It’s about as old school as you get. Lodge with good bar (check). Fixed double chair (check). Long runs, good vert (check and check) and good snow. Now Brooklyn thanks to the Diamond bar is coming to Platty. (Click that little read more button below to get the deets).

Let It Snow

Sometimes pictures count more than words. And, with the way the weather was, well, I didn't have much to say. Except that yesterday's 4 inches felt like a foot. (And yes, I treated it like a powder day). Which attests to the sad state of affairs in my weather world. Or just my ski addiction. However, hope (and flakes) are in the air for those us addicted to the white stuff... MLK Jr looks to be celebrating his birthday in fine style. See you at Platty.

Tele @ Platty!

You've heard the rumors - Plattekill is going Freeheel. It's true: we now have some rental gear in limited sizes in the rental shop - making Platty the only mountain in New York State that offers tele equipment for rent. It's a beginning, and we hope to acquire more. There are also tele lessons available for never-evers and beginner-to-intermediate freeheelers who want to improve their turns. Plattekill, with our varied terrain - steeps, cruisers, ridge runs and woods – and our unique, indie-vibe, suits telemark skiers perfectly.
