Located west of the Hudson River, the region is a tourist favorite when it comes to outdoor activities during all periods of the year, though winter tends to steal the spotlight due to a high density of ski and snowboard areas
. Chalet rentals and condo rental accommodations are available throughout the Catskills region.
With a lodging accommodation in the area you will be near a whopping five ski resorts
, the south-most of which is Holiday Mountain. Aptly named, the resort is close to several hotels and spas as well as various vacation accommodations. The park itself offers a 122 m vertical drop, four lifts and a fairly equal skill level distribution between beginner, intermediate and advanced. Several expert trails exist as well.
Higher in the north there are four ski resorts that are close to one another. Bellayre and Hunter Mountains
are the slightly more southern two. The former boasts a vertical drop of 428 m while the latter has one of 488 m
. Both resorts offer close to ten lifts each, but while the majority of Bellayre’s trails are classified as intermediate, Hunter Mountain
has a distribution very similar to Holiday Mountain’s. For a great way to kick back after a long day of carving snow, grab one of our chalet rental accommodations.
The last and two north-most resorts are Plattekill and Windham Mountains
. Operating for over fifty years, the Windham resort is a family-friendly place where people of all skill levels are welcome. The mountain has a vertical drop of 488 m, an impressive longest run of 3.6 km and is accompanied by ten lifts
to get you back into the action as quickly as possible. The Plattekill Mountain Resort offers a similarly long run of 3.2 km, a vertical drop of 335 m and three lifts. With such an expansive and varying selection of skiing resorts, it is no wonder chalet rental accommodations and vacation rentals in Catskills are so popular
But don’t make the mistake of thinking the fun ends when the snow melts
. Many of the winter resorts transform into summer wonderlands with activities the entire family can enjoy. Holiday Mountain alone offers go-karts, bumper boats, mini golf, a rock climbing wall and even a paintball shooting gallery
and with a vacation rental accommodation near the Windham resort you will have access to an adventure park, swimming pools, golf and much more
. The mountainous terrain of the area will give you plenty of nature space to hike or bicycle through.
