About us

Plattekill Mountain…who we are.

Located in the Northwestern Catskills of New York, the 2018/19 season marks our 25th Anniversary of offering skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing fun.

Fiercely independent, Plattekill is owned and operated by the Vajtay Family, catering to what we know best, families. As part of a shrinking number of privately operated mountains, Plattekill prides itself on offering a laid-back, authentic vibe. We celebrate the soul of skiing and mountain culture.

Powder Magazine’s Porter Fox, describes Plattekill as The Alta of the Catskills.”  (December 2018)

Rich Stoner’s article in Made Man (January 2018) says “There’s something to be said for getting back to basics with a genuine mountain experience that stimulates your soul. And even as resorts continue to merge across the continent, making authenticity a thing of the past, a few stalwarts hold fast to the good old days.”

Come for a visit and discover what makes Plattekill special.  We hope to see you on the slopes this winter!
