About Us.

Greetings and welcome to Plattekill Mountain! 
Located in the Northwestern Catskills of New York, we pride ourselves in being the last family-owned and operated ski mountain in our region and offering skiers that special difference.  At Plattekill you’ll find a laid-back, authentic vibe that’s hard to find in today’s skiing world.
We cater to what we know best, families and offer 38 exciting trails for skiing and snowboarding with 1100′ of vertical drop.   Choose from 2 mile long beginner trails to double black diamond steeps (some of the steepest in the east).  There’s something for everyone and we’ve got snowtubing fun too!

We’re all about big mountain terrain, small mountain charm and building a community around an intangible thing, atmosphere.

Last January the Sunday NY Times  quoted “25 years later, the scrappy, indie mountain is thriving” and Powder Magazine, December 2018 described Plattekill as “The Alta of the Catskills.”

To those descriptions we say, thank you we are humbled.  To you, we say please, come for a visit and experience for yourself just what makes a day at Plattekill Mountain different.
