Rent an Entire Ski Mountain for the Day

Picture this: having an entire ski mountain all to yourself. No lift lines, no huge crowds, fresh tracks, and familiar faces all around. That’s just what customers get when they rent Plattekill Mountain for the day—exclusive mountain use for a range of purposes, from corporate events to birthday parties, or even a “sick day” from work to enjoy the snow with friends.

Plattekill Mountain has been offering private mountain rentals since 2013, but only in recent years has the idea really begun to catch on. It all started one weekday when a group of skiers arrived to ski, only to find the doors locked tight. When they asked how much it would cost to get the lifts running for them, “that’s how the idea started,” explains owner and General Manager, Laszlo Vajtay. He continues, “We put a price tag on it that would allow us to cover expenses and make it worth it to open, and they took us up on it.” As one can imagine, the result was a day that that group of skiers will not soon forget, and thanks to them, private mountain rentals are a reality.

The idea of renting an entire resort property has started gaining some traction with other recreational businesses throughout the U.S. However, starting at $3,500 per day for new customers, Plattekill Mountain remains one of the most affordable options offering this kind of customer experience. Guests enjoy exclusive use of the mountain, including all open ski trails and lifts. The rental fee provides up to 250 lift tickets (more available at a drastically discounted rate), optional private use of the snow tubing park, and group discounts on equipment and lessons. Plattekill Mountain’s team can also arrange custom catered meals and beverage options too, ensuring a truly unique day for each customer.

In the off-season, Plattekill Mountain is a popular location as a destination wedding venue that offers private use of the entire resort throughout the entire week leading up to the wedding (no other mountain activities or guests). Now, with winter private mountain rentals, couples can enjoy a private wedding any time of year.

Dates for the upcoming 2018-19 winter mountain rental season are filling up quickly, but customers can secure their date with a $500 deposit. The rental fee starts at $3,500, but will go up to $4,500 if booked after October 31, 2018.
