Winter 2018-2019

To our friends in the media,

We’re looking forward to an exciting winter here at Windham Mountain Resort, with lots of new upgrades! Westside Six, our brand new, high speed, six passenger chairlift is anticipated to open early in the season. We’re proud to be the first resort in New York State to implement RFID Lift Access Technology. The new process provides easier access to lifts, more accurate scanning of tickets and passes, and when tickets are reloaded onto RFID media via windhammountain.com, skiers and riders will get up to 42% off ticket window rates, while avoiding a wait in the ticket line.

Nearly 100 new automated, high efficiency snow guns, over 2 miles of new snowmaking pipe, a new PistenBully 400 Snowcat, and a brand new pool at The Winwood Inn round out a total of $8 Million in capital investments for this year.

2018/2019 will mark Windham Mountain Resort’s second year of offering Terrain Based LearningTM, a game-changing revolution within the snow industry. Learning to ski or snowboard has never been more fun! Snowsports lessons and programs are offered all ages and ability levels.

In our 58th year of business, Windham Mountain Resort is not only the Catskills’ premiere snowsports destination, but a year-round resort catering to a variety of outdoor enthusiasts. I invite you to come visit us this winter, and next summer to make your own mountain memories, minutes away!

Best Regards,
