Great family time. Skiing,snowboarding, snowtubing, and warm cozy lodge for the rest of you!
Hunter Mountain offers more options and slopes for the advanced skiier or snowboarder. FYI - If you are looking for a more family-friendly place, we recommend Windham Mountain instead.
A bit further than Windham Mountain, Hunter Mountain has skiing for all levels and some rather astounding views of the Catskill Mountain Range.
My favorite ski area in the Catskills. Only 10 minutes away. Plenty of steeper slopes for me and a large learning center if you are starting out.
“Windham Mountain has great skiing and a summer downhill biking experience as well. ”
“I like Belleayre. Nice mountain. Has a gondola. About 40 minutes away if you’re looking to explore a little. ”
“Beautiful views of New York State's highest cascading waterfall. Accessible from Rte 23a and Laurel House Rd off of North and South Lake Road. ”
“40 Minutes Away. This is a bit of jaunt but my husband and I like to hike Peekamouse Mountain (it's right by the blue hole and the drive is incredible) and then head over to Phoenica Diner for lunch and then do grocery shopping in Woodstock. The food is solid basics but is kind of a Brooklyn scene as of late (which is totally fine by me but some people get annoyed by Brooklyn-ization of upstate).”
