Plattekill is an under appreciated mountain among the for Catskill ski areas. I am a long time Dutchess County skier and know too many local people who have never been there. As soon as you say you are going, someone will reply, "better hope it snows." Let's lust summarize that if you've not been there, you do not know how... More

Nothing too fancy here. Just a friendly, family oriented organization that is committed to customer service and providing visitors a good time on the slopes at a reasonable price. We meet up here with a group of 8-10 friends from nj and pa each year for a weekend of skiing. This is our 3rd or 4th year. Every employee we... More

Great snow with wonderful vertical. I had the pleasure of skiing here late in the season(Aprll 4) and was astounded by how nice the conditions were. While on the mountain I had the pleasure of getting to meet the owner. He was simply skiing the mountain and making friends with people enjoying it that day! This is the opposite of... More

This is is an ideal resort for folks looking for a familiar, friendly, cozy place to get some skiing, snowboarding, or tubing in for a reasonable price. My husband and kids learned to snowboard here last year and it definitely helped us cope with the relentless upstate winter! Though there aren't as many trails as some of the bigger establishments,... More

Went snow tubing with 4 adults and 2 children; it was an excellent activity for both the adults and children! The grounds were well-maintained, clean and scenic. The lodge has 3 floors with 2 restaurants; one a simple cafeteria great for families, and one with a largely stocked bar for adults. My family and I were dissatisfied with 2 things...first,... More

My partner and I bought tickets from Liftopia and due to a myriad of issues got to the mountain an hour before closing. The friendly homey atmosphere was great and the staff said we could come back and use the Liftopia voucher towards tickets on another day. They do home cooking there!

The lodge was bustling and fun, just like I'd expect a ski lodge to be. The views were fantastic and the tubing was just entirely too much fun! The guys on the mountain who hooked us up to the lift and spun us from the top were great! A bunch of fun, friendly, good-natured guys who gave us a blast... More
