Plattekill Mountain to Offer Private Ski and Stay Packages

ROXBURY, NY: Since 2013, Plattekill Mountain has been offering customers the opportunity to rent the entire ski mountain for a day on any non-holiday Monday or Thursday during ski season. The idea has gained in popularity in recent years, with the last three seasons being almost entirely booked. What’s more, while private mountain rentals started off primarily as groups of friends or family looking for a fun winter getaway in the Catskill Mountains, the resort has seen a dramatic increase in the number of corporate groups booking mountain rentals for a range of events, from employee appreciation days to team building outings, business retreats, and beyond.
