Full review

Newsflash: this mountain is located in the Catskills. It's not Colorado and it's not Vermont. The average annual snowfall is only 110 inches. That said, Windham churns out a great product for NYC area skiiers and snowboarders. I've been there on its best day (2 1/2 feet of fresh powder) and I've been there on its worst day (ice pellets the size of marbles) and I will keep going back year after year. If you ski or board often, you know that humans can only control the conditions to a certain degree. The bottom line is that Windham does a great job with the environment they have and they offer some of the longest runs within 3 hours of the city.
