Phantom rider; cool pic from yesterday
 
Two absolutely fantastic bluebird days! Did the cheap ticket at Catamount yesterday. Great, great conditions, very few people, wound up riding in just a hoodie (well, pants, too). But check out this pic I got from the main lift, looking down onto Catapult. Captured a wake, but no skier or snowboarder. :eek:

I can see the end of a ski pole on the left side of the screen.

:D

I haven't been to catamount in ages....

Sadly, it appears Catamount is finally going upscale. They're pushing a huge new resort base area hotel/condo. Most of what I like about the place is it's small scale, old school charm. They'll build this big development, but the mountain will still be small. We'll probably be saying goodbye to $30 mid-week lift tickets.

Never heard of this place! Only 2 hours from me in SE, CT. I've been going to berkshire east in western Mass, which is over 2 hours. If you've been there, how does it compare?

Neither Berkshire East or Catamount will seriously test your skills. Both have about 1000' of drop. Catamount is steeper. Right on the state line…get on the lift in MA, hop off in NY.

This is my first season in 6 years so these heights are ideal for their distance

So Catamount wants to expand and spend that $$. Are they opening any new trails or anything? I don't remember them being big enough to even get really crowded.

I've only seen plans for a big resort lodge/condo/hotel. I just don't see how that little mountain can support it, and I'm not sure they have room to expand the terrain.
