I have a sneaking suspicion this thread is directed towards me, since you've been bugging me to go up there recently... thanks Scotty for thorough and slightly incoherent directions :).

I do have GPS :D

Well truth be told, I wad just tired of seeing my favorite Catskills hill information be put in to someone else's trip report, for Bell, and your not the only knew person going lol, but I thought of you and others when I came up with this ideas. Have fun tomorrow, dont get a bagel at Platty their not as good as yours. Go to Bar upstairs look at the view.:):):):):cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::)
GPS may or may not get you to Plattekill, ski left side expert and intermediate more natural snow base here. Right side is beginning and blue easier side. Have fun in the powder. Take a run for me. Food in bar is better choice then lodge food.:):)

First timers, make sure you eat lunch at Platty too, up at the bar on the 3rd level (not at the cafeteria on the 2nd level). For $10 you get a fantastic lunch complete with a side, for the same price that a bag of chips and a dried-up tinfoil wrapped burger costs at most mountains.

Also, for a snack, the brownies at $3.50 are literally the size of about 1/2 a tray of brownies you'd make at home :-o


thanks Scotty for thorough and slightly incoherent directions :).

Be thankful you got the slightly incoherent version.

Pricechopper shoppers - 29 dollar tickets, but you have to get someone at the register who knows what they are doing. If they send you to customer service, or if customer service tells you they are out of them, they are incorrect. They have unlimited numbers and just need to ring it up at the register. Frustrating experience at Delhi Pricechopper last weekend.

Liftopia shoppers - sometimes you can get a ticket that includes a 10 dollar food voucher for the same price as a regular (liftopia) ticket; or sometimes it's 5 bucks more for a 10 dollar voucher. The first time I was there they let you use the voucher upstairs at the carving station. Last time they denied me (after already plating the food), stating it was only for cafeteria food.

If you find yourself in the woods, look out for signs. If you see one that says "drop" or has arrows pointing down to the ground - they mean it.

Blockbuster is where you want to be for first tracks on a powder day (in my limited experience).

Anyway, just some info you may find handy.

Plattekill Mountain 12:56pm

It's SNOWING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this bodes well if the precipitation shield is already reaching that far west. Maybe they will get 5 or 6 inches out of this afterall.

Don't be fooled by that tricky "turn 3 miles ahead" sign!

Snow reports from the catskills folks makes this girl really happy :):)

My skiing gal pal has a BOGO coupon, so I think we're set on the $ for lifts.

When you say 'drop' how much of a drop are we talking about? I can handle a few feet, but if you're talking a 10'+ cliffline, yeah, F that.
