On Plattekill Mountain, snowboarders, skiers, and snowshoers can find big mountain terrain in a small mountain atmosphere. This family-owned ski mountain, complete with 38 trails, maintains a laid-back environment to keep the focus on having fun in the snow. The staff also work continuously to ensure the snow is always fresh throughout the day. You can choose to glide down the powdery mountain surface on one of the myriad trails that range from a gentle two-mile cruiser to the Blockbuster trail–a double-black diamond trail with 1,100 feet of continuous vertical. For skiers, tubers, or boarders who are just getting started, private and group lessons can show you the basic techniques of your favorite sport and get you on the snow quickly.
