The reason they only do it Mon-Thurs is because the mountain is closed every day besides Fri/Sat/Sun unless they get a ridiculous dump then they may open during the week.

This is one of those small NY mountains that can truly be a hidden gem if the conditions are right. I didn't make it there last season but 2 years ago I was there with a couple of friends on friday we played hooky from work because it was a pow day and I think there was maybe 10 other people on the mountain with us. It's small but because it's not crowded you can shred the shit out of it.

lo0p your asking some good questions I think we might have to call Plattekill on this and just get a run down on terms and conditions. Also money would be an issue so the method David mentioned would be perfect.

I'm sure the resort is liable for anything that happens under their normal insurance - never hurts to clarify with them, though, just to be safe.

From what I remember it has a small park. A few rails, some small kickers and a small box or two and that's it IIRC.

Sorry was in and out of meetings all afternoon so I couldn't check on this. I guess this may actually work out if we can get through some hurdles. I would even do it if we had 40-50 people. With tax its $2,700 so less than $60 to board all day without any lines or people.

Thats probably the easiest way but I like the below idea about ChipIn. The only problem is that paypal charges a feel so we can do $60pp and then if we get more than 40 people we can figure out a refund strategy for the excess money

And if you don't get enough money/participants I think you can just refund everyone.
Yes, it would be great to use ChipIn. I'll look into maybe starting this tonight.

Who's liable in case something bad happens?
I'll get on the phone with Plattekill and figure out all the details but from what I can see its only on weekdays, M-Th 8:45-4:15. Everything will be open and its just like any other day on the mountain, the resort is liable. Its gotta be a win-win for them since they are closed on weekdays anyway.

Like I said I'll get some details and update the first post. I know for a fact that I can probably get as many as 15 people but realistically about 10. I think we can pull off getting 40 people to pay and commit so the hardest part would be payment collection which would be solved by ChipIn.

Idk if it's possible to do "holiday" type days for instance the day after new years which is a Monday I have off and I bet a lot of other people will have off and it's not techinically a holiday. So to keep the weekend people happy selecting a day like this may be best? So if you could ask Plattekill about a day like that or the day after xmas those may be the best turn out.

I'm sure I could round up a few people as well.

Has anyone come up with a date yet? I know I'm new here but I'll throw out Dec 23rd as I don't think it's part of the holiday yet. I can scrape up atleast 3 people plus myself. I'd also suggest throwing it on a bunch of different towns' craiglists to generate more interest. Even at 100+ people, you pretty much have the place to yourself. No little rugrats or disgruntled parents.

You would have to at least wait until after the new year. Have to give it some time for people to sign up and most people aren't available around the holidays.
