catskills winter

The world’s eyes are on the Big Apple on New Year’s Eve. As we all watch the ball drop, we set new goals and hopes for the upcoming year. Like the ball drop, we’re in New York; however, our winter wonderland is peaceful, tucked away up high in the northern Catskill Mountains. It’s a world away, but closer than you think. Stay at charming Albergo Allegria for an ideal Catskills winter getaway. If you’re looking to welcome this New Year in the Big Apple but want to get out of the city, you’re in luck because we’re a little over a two-hour drive from New York City.

Catskills Winter and Mountain Trails

Strap on your snowshoes, cross country skis or hit the slopes! Hunter Mountain offers three miles of exclusive snowshoeing trails. Take in the stunning Catskill Mountain views as you stroll through fresh snow, trees, and wildlife on a beautiful Catskills winter day. Explore the land with over 50 trails, challenging steep, and open cruising terrain. If you’re looking for small-town charm with a modern ambiance, you should check out Windham Mountain in addition to their 54 trails they also offer a charming inn, premier golf course, a world-class mountain bike park, alpine spa, adventure park, and three restaurants. Such high elevation and snowmaking explain why there’s always tons of snow on our mountain slopes but very little in your backyard.
