Sunday, 27 December 2015 Winter, as we know it, is “slow approaching” this year, but don’t let that keep you from visiting the mountains where we still have lots of fun both on and off the slopes. If you’ve seen the romantic images of a ski lodge, happy people relaxing by a fire with a warm drink in hand … we’ve got all that here! Plus, we have snow too! Although not much from Mother Nature ... Read more
Tuesday, 22 December 2015 The holidays are upon us and 2016 is staring us in the face. But what happened to the white Christmas? Where is our snow this year? Everyone remembers last year … the storm that brought a very white Thanksgiving and those cold temps that kept us going until well after the Easter holiday (we had a storm that day too). Even the storm that hit our region in 2010 is still in ... Read more
Thursday, 29 October 2015 Back in 1993, the current owners of Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury, NY, came across something they couldn’t pass up – a mountain on the auction block, and a dream.

This season is no exception as they unveil a new carpet conveyor lift in their Learning Center.

Monday, 20 October 2014 All new snowmaking for the 2014-15 season on the headwalls of Twist and Ridge Run trails off our double chairlift. This area is brand new to snowmaking. This is a HUGE improvement to two of our most popular trails. We have also expanded the snowmaking power on The Plunge trail under the double chair making for much faster opening of the trail for the upcoming season.
Tuesday, 14 October 2014 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!!

Friday, 16 May 2014 As we gear up for the official arrival of the summer season with Memorial Day Weekend coming up, you most likely don’t think about hitting a ski resort for some summer fun in the sun. Ski Mountains after all are for winter, skiing, boarding, snowtubing and the like. However, quite the contrary is what you’ll find at most resorts, and Plattekill (or Platty as most come to call us) is no exception. In ... Read more
