10 THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT PLATTEKILL ...

  1. This m1-this-mapap. It’s been settling arguments in the bar about length and descent since 1972. It’s beautiful. James Niehues eat your heart out.

  2. No lift lines. …and even if one does form, it’s so convivial that you’d hardly notice.

  3. Cheers. You wanna go to a place where everybody knows your name. It’s that “Norm!” moment when your ski buddies shout your name from the chairlift.

  4. It’s family run. If you don’t bump into Laszlo or Danielle in the lodge, you might see them on the slopes and they’ll be happy to ski with you. And now the next generation of Vajtays is stepping up to help out with snowmaking and snow tubing.

  5. This guy. Steve Supp – he keeps it real in his Carhartt overalls and thrift store skis (price sticker intact).

  6. Snow (outside). Plattekill is frequently blessed with the natural stuff, and even when it isn’t, Macker and his team do heroic things with a couple hundred snow guns.

  7. Snow (inside). The majestic bark creature that watches over the bar. Snow is actually a pretty good skier – look closely and you’ll see Snow favors some pretty old skool 2x4 skis.

  8. Free Heelers. Plattekill is the only hill where you’ll see more than one tele skier at a time, which is why we’ve coined a collective noun for them. It’s a “curtsy” of teleskiers.

  9. 7-snow-insideThe Lodge Bar. What’s better after a big day skiing than one of those Polish beers with the funny name that only Laszlo can pronounce? Yeah, one of those please.

  10. The People. Which is really a thousand more reasons – the familiar faces we see only during ski season. This season has been a long time coming and we’ve been missing them. As someone put it today “whether there’s snow or not it’s good to see everyone again – it’s social”

Are you ready for some "Snowfall?!"

Get ready for the all-new permanent "tower-mounted fan guns" that have replaced the existing snowguns on our Lower Face trail! This will make for a TON more snowmaking - faster and deeper than ever before!  This is one of our most widely used trails on the lower part under the triple chair.  This will also provide a deeper base for racing.  Are you ready for winter?! We are!!
