What a Way to Start the Year!

This has been one of the coldest January’s we’ve had in Windham, NY in years. Several nights below zero degrees Fahrenheit, which is great for our ice skating rink and snow making. Both Windham and Hunter Mountain have been making snow non-stop for almost the entire month. There are so many trails open at both mountains, you’ll need more than a weekend to ski it all.

As you can see from the photos, the snow is falling in here at the Evergreen at The Thompson House. A nice covering of snow has made for a lot of fun outdoor activities. There is plenty of area  and snow nearby for cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sleigh riding, and a snowball fight. The great northern Catskill Mountains and a beautiful site year round, and you have to see them covered in snow.

Learn How to Ski

Great conditions, make a great time to learn how to ski. You are never too old or too young to learn how to ski. Opening the winter of 2013/14 Windham Mountain expanded their beginner’s area and added two new carpet lifts. For this winter (2014/15) Hunter Mountain expanded their children’s area. Now both Windham and Hunter Mountains offer a great place to learn how to ski and great instructors to help you learn. The new carpet lifts and expanded area make it easier and safer for everyone.

The first real snow fall of the year is here! There is so much snow falling right now that you can’t see Windham Mountain. The snow plows are making sure that the road are clear for safe passage. If you are already in Windham and don’t feel like venturing out onto the roads, we do have a couple of rooms open tonight. Drive safe!

Think snow!

This has been one of the coldest Decembers Windham, NY has had in years. It seems like everyday we get at least a dusting of snow to keep everything looking beautiful. Cold nights means that both Windham and Hunter Mountains have been busy making snow. The base that each mountain is enough to last long into the season. Of course more natural snow is expected and always welcome. Natural snow means that our sleigh riding hill should be ready for use soon. The more snow it has the more fun it is.

20141221_095557 20141221_095522_HDRChristmas and the New Year will soon be here.
