New York's Plattekill Mountain has a few surprises in store for returning riders this year. One is fatter trails. Opening day is right around the corner at Plattekill, as snow squalls envelope the mountain these mid-November days. You've got until the end of the month to snag season passes with honkin' discounts. Get at it. Once on the hill, you'll see the changes: More snowmaking and wider runs. They've significantly widened more than a dozen trails on the hill for coast-to-coast crusin' top to bottom.
