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!!

They say music lifts your heart, warms the soul and makes you feel good, so for that very reason, Plattekill Mountain in Roxbury, NY has decided to feature a ‘MUSIC ON THE MOUNTAIN” free concert on Saturday, August 30th. This family-friendly event will take place from 3-7pm with plenty of fun for young and old to enjoy the last few official days of summer, plus beautiful Catskill mountain views and just kick back and relax. For a great beginning of the Labor Day weekend, all you need to do is bring is a blanket or lawn chair and yourselves. Food and beverage will be available for purchase on the resort’s wrap around deck. The resort’s chairlift will also operate for mountaintop views for $7 per person from 3-5pm during the event. Music will feature the local band, ‘Esquela’, offering a unique Americana/Bluesy rootsy/rock and roll & a hint of country music with some serious high quality guitar playing and powerful vocals. Esquela, which is Spanish for ‘school’, is originally from Bovina, New York and has amazed people of all walks of life in their heavily traveled hotspots of entertaining. More on their music can be found on their website at www.esquelatheband.com. Plattekill’s unique layout situated in a natural ski bowl makes for a perfect amphitheater for sound and a great place for an intimate concert setting. Plattekill plans to expand on this idea next year and feature a free-to-the-public mini-concert ‘Music on the Mountain’ series next summer over a span of multiple dates.
