Re: Plattekill Conditions

Earliest mountain biking open in the east, and latest skiing in the Catskills, if they could build that brand they would be golden. The early season mountain biking thing is actually paying off. People are coming in and spending money.

Re: Plattekill Conditions

A multi sport day pass would be sick!

It might not be financially viable but it sure sounds cool.

Re: Plattekill Conditions

We had a multi sport day pass the last weekend of skiing when the mountain was open for biking on one side and skiing on the other.

And, there were indeed a number of people that participated in both sports on that day/weekend.

Re: Plattekill Conditions

How many days of snowmaking would you need to get like 10 feet deep?

Re: Plattekill Conditions

Well, as of now it takes about 48 hours of solid cold (like lower 20s) to put down two feet on Northface. That's 1 foot/day. So 10 days I guess. This year Northface got 4 full days of snowmaking. You could do it on Plunge too, but for it to be effective, you would have to install more guns and pipe. On the lower half.
