Above & Beyond

There’s an elevating power to the mountains.  A magnetism that pulls us up out of the well-worn groove of daily life and into a higher stratum of experience.  They lift us to the edge of what we know and expose us to the elements.  They help us see farther, think bigger, and reconnect to ourselves, our families, our friends…and to nature’s inspiring wildness itself.  Mountains offer passage to a completely different world, to a parallel universe of wind and light—an elevated reality above the norm and beyond expectation.  At Windham Mountain, we live for the Above and Beyond.  We’re here every day.  People come to Windham to get lost and found again, to find stunning adventure close to home, and to be reminded of how good it feels to be alive with family and friends in the fresh air.  Elevate your experience.  Find your land in the sky, Above and Beyond.  We’ll see you up here.

What’s new for the 2019/2020 Season?

In the last two years, over twelve million dollars has been devoted to the guest experience at Windham Mountain.  Along with a long list of exciting operational updates, Windham unveils new branding for the 2019/2020 winter season.  While that means an updated look and logo, it also means a redefined purpose to guide healthier, happier lives through an elevated, unique mountain experience – to be above and beyond the expected.

In a time of industry consolidation, strong, independent resort competition continues to carve out unique guest-focused experiences and provide an alternative to crowding and other downside impacts of acquisitions and mergers.  A passion-powered outdoor community with the support of an active investor group, Windham is well-positioned to continue offering a more boutique and personal experience to skiers and riders in the Catskills.  Windham Mountain is a place to get lost and found again, to find stunning adventure close to home, and to be reminded of how good it feels to be alive with family and friends in the fresh air.  Here’s what’s new for the 19/20 winter season!

  • Lift capacity out of the base area continues to increase at Windham. C Lift, a fixed grip triple chair serving beginner and intermediate terrain on the lower half of the West Peak has been upgraded with the relocation of the high speed quad now in place as A Lift.
  • Upper & Lower Whistler, one of Windham’s signature top to bottoms runs, are now fully automated, meaning snowmaking can start and stop literally at the touch of a button in those areas.
  • A new booster pump house for the East Peak has increased water pressure, and therefore, snowmaking efficiency by 35%.
  • 10,000 feet of snowmaking pipe for air and water has been replaced in key areas across the mountain continue to increase snowmaking efficiency.
  • A brand new 33-foot diameter European-inspired “Umbrella Bar” with room for 125 guests in enclosed, heated comfort is the centerpiece of a reenergized patio area.
  • A second new building houses a unique ski and snowboard simulator that offers guests the chance to ski or ride downhill race venues from around the world virtually while supporting the Adaptive Sports Foundation. This building will also house a new equipment valet and quick tune up station.
  • Upgrades and changes to sunset operations: C Lift has been upgraded with the relocation of a high-speed quad, which means your sunset rides to the top of Wonderama, Wheelchair, Warm Up and What Terrain Park will be much quicker. Sunset operations have been consolidated to the C Lift area of the mountain, while also continuing to include Wooly Bear and the E Carpet lift for beginners.  Brand new, high efficiency lighting has been installed in sunset operation areas.
  • A portion of Wildcat, a trail in the Wilderness Bowl area added in 2015, has been widened.
  • Windham is committed to providing the best snow surface possible, and the grooming fleet is updated with a new machine each season. This year, it’s a new PistenBully Park Cat.  Four out of the five machines in the fleet now have Tier 4 compliant engines.
  • Renovated rooms at The Winwood Inn, a quaint lodging property in the village of Windham owned and operated by the mountain.
  • A newly renovated and reinvented restaurant at The Winwood Inn, on Main Street in Windham. Tavern 23 will feature classic American comfort food.
  • An upgraded booking system with new software that will allow guests to bundle lodging stays with lift tickets, lessons, and even rentals in one easy transaction.
  • An expanded Guest Services department and on-site call center.

Because weather can change rapidly in the mountains, we encourage you to check our Mountain Report page frequently or call our Snow Report Hotline toll free at 1-800-729-4766. While at the mountain, you can check conditions at ticket windows, throughout the lodge and at the Central Information Board near the base of the lifts.
