Plattekill is totally worth it if they have the coverage, don't think twice about it! Especially glades.

Very little snowmaking, and great natural terrain. Closest you can get to MRG on a board.

Edit: Blows Hunter and Windham away for terrain. Locals in the Cats head there, avoid all the knuckleheads at the other two. Belleayre worth a look too if just looking to beat the Hunter/Windham crowds and not into the glades, though Belleayre has some good ones, just not as steep as Plattekill.

Yes natural bumps, drops, and all. Plattekill is often called the Mad River Glenn of the Catskills. Only open Fri/Sat/Sundays. Great hill.

Highest natural snowfall in the region too.
