Went snow tubing with 4 adults and 2 children; it was an excellent activity for both the adults and children! The grounds were well-maintained, clean and scenic. The lodge has 3 floors with 2 restaurants; one a simple cafeteria great for families, and one with a largely stocked bar for adults. My family and I were dissatisfied with 2 things...first,... More

My partner and I bought tickets from Liftopia and due to a myriad of issues got to the mountain an hour before closing. The friendly homey atmosphere was great and the staff said we could come back and use the Liftopia voucher towards tickets on another day. They do home cooking there! I am a very sensitive celiac and I... More

The lodge was bustling and fun, just like I'd expect a ski lodge to be. The views were fantastic and the tubing was just entirely too much fun! The guys on the mountain who hooked us up to the lift and spun us from the top were great! A bunch of fun, friendly, good-natured guys who gave us a blast... More

Plattekill offers a nice product, something for everyone at a good price. They have some of the best steep trails, (Northface, Plunge, Freefall & Blockbuster) in the area. They have a nice long green trail off both peaks. Nice bar upstairs in the lodge. Best kept secret in the Catskills.

This place is great! It is definitely a skiers mountain (a little harder to navigate on a snowboard) and probably better for intermediate or advanced skiers. Of course, I only did one green run all day, which was a nice break. The grooming was great, but not over done. You could actually ski the soft snow and have fun. I... More

Small but adventurous resort. Seemed very family oriented but that is due to a lot of families having houses near by. There is a good bar on the 3rd floor of the resort, also has a good view of the downhill. The lounge is huge and makes good food. Night tubing is great.

Love everything about Plattekill, from the slopes to the apres ski atmopshere in the lodge. The mountain can be challenging, but there are never lines.

This is the most family friendly ski resort I've ever been too. It's cozy but with good facilities. Ski rental and ski school are very good. Don't miss the upstairs grill in the lodge for some really great eats. Best part is that the kids won't get lost in a big crowd, the lines aren't long and everyone who works... More
