John Tunis from United States writes:

Plattekill (Ski Plattekill) is a family mountain that is all about having fun. It is not fancy, but Plattekill has everything it takes to have a memorable ski experience. The terrain varies from the long, easy Powder Puff, a top to bottom green, to double diamond Blockbuster, a steep, challenging mogul run. The fall line black diamond runs: North Face, Plunge, GS, Freefall and the Face are steep, straight and narrow. While the blues: Ridge, Twist,and The S snake their their way down the bowl shaped mountain. Tree skiing abounds and the locals all have their secret stash. Plattekill gets the most natural snow in the Catskills and due to the smaller crowds and fixed grip lifts, the powder stays for days after a storm. Plattekill may not have status but it sure has soul. If you love to ski you will love to ski Plattekill.
