No matter how you feel about it, it’s officially winter, so why don’t we ring in the damn cold with some skiing & Boarding.
Y’all have been talking, now it’s time to put your money where your mouth is…New years resolutions and all!. I’m stoked about this trip so I better see you on the mountain. Bring your friends too!
Windham mountain is one of my favorites, great for beginners, intermediates and pros. Its only ~2 hours from NY, has nice lush snow and also offers good food, a ski shop etc.
Windham Mountain, in New York’s beautiful Catskill Mountains offers the most skiing and riding you’ll find within 200 miles of NYC. Skiers and riders can find 285 skiable acres and 54 trails over two peaks, 6 terrain parks and 12 lifts.
