Windham deserves it's popularity, since it has a wide variety of terrain and a sizable lodge with plenty of amenities. I was there on a Friday afternoon in bitter cold weather, so didn't deal with any lift lines, but there are enough runs at various skill levels that I don't expect that it gets over run by crowds. I especially enjoyed that many of the runs weren't those typical skinny straights that you often get at Catskill resorts.

All in all, it's a great Catskill mountain, especially if you want to limit your driving.
