About Us

Welcome to Plattekill Mountain! 

Located in the Northwestern Catskills of New York, Plattekill Mountain is the last family-owned  mountain still operating in the region.  We pride ourselves on that uniqueness and have an atmosphere here, you won’t find at corporate resorts.  Plattekill has a laid-back, authentic, “indie” vibe feel, unique in today’s skiing world.

Choose from 38 trails and discover 2 mile long beginner cruisers and steep double black diamonds with 1100′ of vertical drop.  We describe it as ‘big mountain terrain and small mountain charm’.

January, 2019 Sunday NY Times  quoted “25 years later, the scrappy, indie mountain is thriving” and December, 2018 Powder Magazine described Plattekill as “The Alta of the Catskills.”

We hope you come visit us this winter and experience for yourself what makes a day at Plattekill Mountain… so special.
