Experience winter in the Catskills

Winter's snow makes everything new, creating opportunities to experience favorite destinations as if for the first time. When the snow flies and the temperatures fall, head north to experience winter in the Catskills.

Home to epic landscapes that beckon with adventure, and some of the best New York ski resorts for a quick getaway from the city, the Catskills offer a winter destination that delivers great views, epic ski days, cool places to stay, and incredible places to eat. In fact, skip the skiing altogether and hit up our celebrated Catskills restaurants. From farm-to-table to fresh-from-the-sea, discover sumptuous plates in cozy restaurant corners from Woodstock to Windham. Whether you spend the day on skis, or shopping on Main Street, nothing closes out a day of winter adventure better than a small-batch brew from one of our famed Catskill breweries.
