Catamount is a great value in my opinion. This place is very reasonably priced, has great intermediate and expert terrain for NY and the Catskills, and is under a 3 hr drive from NYC. I went once in the 2011-2012 season on a Friday right after a snowfall and this place was awesome! No one on the trails, night skiing until very late (making the drive from NYC worth it). I went this Jan (2013) during a day when they had a $10 lift ticket special. Needless to say there had been no recent snowfall and the weather made snowmaking difficult, so they didnt even make any. Still a good day for anything under $40 a ticket. The staff are very nice (which is odd since they employ the same "type" of HS/college kids that most resorts do, yet they went out of their way to say 'Hi' and "Enjoy your run" etc. I am a big fan of Catamount and will be returning soon.

    Perfect for family if you're not looking for extremely difficult. You can make an intermediate trail difficult if you go fast and hit all the jumps. When ...

    Fine for location and horrid lack of snow. They did get some last weekend though. The Park has a nice rainbow box, two up down boxes, corrugated pipe, two f...
