Re: Plattekill Conditions

I want to demolish and redo the maintenance, pump house etc and bulldoze that part of the road so you ski right through that area. I'm envisioning all new parking at the bottom. Now that I think of it, maybe the tubing can go where the current parking is, basically running from the current lodge's third level right down to the new lodge. That would be a badass tubing Hill

Re: Plattekill Conditions

I do see what you mean about the trees on the other side of Overlook but I feel like some local insiders already ski out there and I kind of like keeping the infrastructure compact the way it is now

Re: Plattekill Conditions

I always wanted to ski those trees, but I don’t want to have to hoof it up the road afterwards.  So I like Ethan’s idea!

Lots of good thinking Ethan.

Funny as hell seeing a lift coming right out of the farmers field.  As far as I know, there is only one rule at Plattekill... "don't ski in the farmers field!"

Seems like the trees at all of my mountains are getting trails.   Maybe just a rope tow on the ridge?

JT you know this: If you didn't have to walk at the end there would be many more tracks in the snow.

What do you mean? Where?

I am an advocate for having an old school ropetow somewhere too.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

Re: Plattekill Conditions

Let’s get back to reality. Who’s skiing tomorrow?  It’s going to be fun. I wish I had a snapshot of post rain pre Snow

Re: Plattekill Conditions

trail count is low. can't imagine the trees are in play. i blew edge out last year in the 40 inch storm with no base underneath it.

.        Beautiful day at Platt.  Lower angle natural trails were skiable. I wish I could figure out how to post right side up photos

When my IPhone does that, I go into pictures, open the pic, hit "edit", select the crop tool, crop a hairs width off the edges, rotate it all the way around (360 degrees) then save it that way. Then I go back and edit the post, delete and redo the pics and it posts right side up. It takes less time then the explanation makes it sound
