CHAMPAGNE, IT'S NOT just for kings and the elite. No here in the Northern Catskills champagne means something else entirely. Powder. Yes. A foot and a half of it to be precise. And, here is the proof in the pictures. Conditions were stellar, the sky was blue, the skiing the sort that had people whooping and using words like "epic" and saying that they can't remember when it was this good.

Okay I will be posting soon about the Terrain Park which has been open since opening day and is this year better, bigger more stocked and more stoked than ever. But first, we interrupt this program with a conditions update. The double chair is running, though it’s only to get toboggans to the top for ski patrol—but that means it will be open soon. Maybe tomorrow?
So here it is, that time of year that some of us love, some of us hate, and some of us just seem to spend eating our weight in cookies. That makes me think of that New Year’s resolution I have about exercise….yeah, yeah I know we are all going to eat better, exercise more, etc. A few weeks back I talked about old dogs and new tricks. My follow up is kind of the “Old Dog, Same Resolutions” At any rate, I was thinking that between the cookies and holiday cocktails, we can get a jump on our resolutions by getting out in the snow.
Mother Nature has been difficult but that’s what snowmaking is for, and the cold weather will be back soon. Macker is grooming, and the rest of us are getting ready because Christmas is coming! That means we are open ALL WEEK LONG. In fact, we are open from December 26th straight through January 5th! Oh yeah and the tubing park will be open starting December 26th also from 11am-7pm!!
So here is my resolution…I’m putting down the cookies, grabbing the family and heading to Platty to KEEP IT REAL with some skiing, tubing, and that riding I promised earlier.
