NY Ski Area Profiles: Authors Wanted

ny ski areasLast spring we introduced the NY Ski Directory. It’s designed to be a resource for skiers looking for information on all the ski areas in New York. It was our intention to provide a current trail map, basic statistics and an insider’s rundown on each resort.

The Nordic Directory is close to being complete.  Through a joint venture between NYSkiBlog and Oxygen Fed Sport each entry includes all three components: trail map, statistics and a profile on each of the nordic ski areas included.

The Alpine Directory includes trail maps and basic statistics.  Now it’s time for the real work.  It’s our goal to publish a 300-500 word overview of each lift-served area in New York. We’d like your help.

We’re looking for mountain insiders, locals, passholders or others in the know to help us fill out the directory’s profile section with an unvarnished description of each ski mountain.  A straightforward look at each area including pros and cons — an informative overview to educate skiers unfamiliar with terrain, amenities, local culture and whatever else is important.

We’ve written the profile of Gore Mountain as an example of the kind of information we’d like to provide in the directory.

If your interested in helping, please let us know which ski area you’d like to help with in the comments below. As an incentive we’ll provide a link back to your website, or a high quality NYSkiBlog Diecut Sticker for your skis. Or you can do it for purely for the love of the skiing in New York.

  1. I would be glad to do Gore, however being a relative newcomer to this community I would not want to deprive anyone else who feels more qualified to jump in.

  2. Can do Hunter as well. I also can do Mount Peter or if NJ is included then Mountain Creek.

  3. Wow cool. So far we’ve got:

    @Jamesdeluxe: Belleayre
    @x10003q: Hunter
    @Marcski: Plattekill
    @Powderqueen: Greek Peak
    @Donald: Hickory?
    @Jimvdak: Windham
    @Face4Me: Whiteface
    @Scott Printup: Holimont!

    @DackerDan: Gore is done, see link above.
    @Betsy Kay: Any other ideas?
    @snoloco: Mt Peter would be cool.
    @Steve Busch: Greek is handled. Labrador, Tog, Song or any Central NY Areas?

    All please email your profiles to me and I will get them up. Remember these profiles aren’t marketing, keep it real. Marcski thanks! Plattekill is up and linked above.

  4. Face4Me, Let me know if you need help. I might not live around LP, but have skied there 80 days the past two years. I would be glad to help.
