Platty is a place where few people want to leave and many want to come. Well not that many, not too many, not so many that the die-hard fans are chased away. Though thanks to Unofficial Networks, Platty now tops the list of where to ski on the East this MLK weekend. And if you want to stay at Platty (because who wants to leave, see above) there are more ways to satisfy that need.
Really what more is there to say when you see this? Oh except for maybe to talk about the the Blockbuster Bar (so named for its fine view of the trademark hill)... More Stella is served than anywhere in Upstate NY and it features fine fine bespoke brews...
But, just to tell the owner of this snowboard, I am not coming to the dark side. Ever.
You've heard the rumors - Plattekill is going Freeheel. It's true: we now have some rental gear in limited sizes in the rental shop - making Platty the only mountain in New York State that offers tele equipment for rent. It's a beginning, and we hope to acquire more. There are also tele lessons available for never-evers and beginner-to-intermediate freeheelers who want to improve their turns. Plattekill, with our varied terrain - steeps, cruisers, ridge runs and woods – and our unique, indie-vibe, suits telemark skiers perfectly.
