Had a great spring ski day. Robin's egg blue sky and no lift lines. Bonus party for staff taking place with outside party, great DJ playing tunes, and a bonfire. Warm and wonderful way to get back to skiing after a year off for knee surgery. Thanks Liftophia. Tip: call next year and find out when their staff party is planned...and go.

Was a beautiful day and it brought in the crowds-big time. Several tips -East side is where it was at. Snow was better and lines were shorter than the base lifts. My daughter and I went to the single lines immediately, met some nice people and then met up at the top. -West side mid station lift and lift at Wonderama also moved better. -When driving, use the dropoff areas that you can park at (for a few minutes) rather than schlepping all of that stuff from the rear lot. See people doing the schlep all the time and ask -WHY?. The people in the front manage the drop off zone so that it is very convenient to use.

2/8/14 - great day on 12" of fresh ! East Mt was the ticket - fewer folks, the dbl diamonds kept their cover the best. all trerrain was in great shape. just wish they hadn't groomed every trail completely - a third left untamed on a few of the wider ones would have been nice.

Really good facility. Very helpful and friendly staff. I've been there 3 times now. The ran well on all the trips I was at. Snow was good. Tip: If you are a beginner, save a few bucks and just get the "Learn to Ski/Snowboard Pass" for the first 4-6 trips you make there. You get rentals, a lesson, and a lift ticket to the easier trails for $89. Even if you don't use the lesson after the first few trips, you'll save money, and really won't lose out, as you're unlikely to use any of the advanced or intermediate slopes, which is what you get access to with the more expensive (full access) lift ticket. Even though the Liftopia site says you can only purchase this once, it appears you can purchase the beginner package as many times as you feel you need it. Also, if you plan to do a weekend trip, keep in mind that almost all the Windham area motels require a 2-night minimum. We drove an hour south, and found a nice place in Woodstock, NY that could accommodate us for just Saturday night.

The staff was great and the beginner packaged is a great deal!! Coming from South Africa I had no clue what to do on a pare of skis but the instituters and other skiers soon got me on my feet and having a blast. All in all a great place to have a lot of fun, I will most definitely be back!!!

I have been skiing on week-ends at Windham for several years and it is definitely the best of all the areas in the vicinity for many reasons. The extensive snow making and grooming create and prolong the best conditions possible for the majority of skiers. If you're an expert skier looking for only big bump skiing, then you may be disappointed but I will take a groomed run with a nice pitch and no ice any day. The staff are all friendly the facilities are pleasant, and the food options include more than the normal cafeteria fare. Lifts are well maintained all run smoothly. All in, it has a nice vibe and provides good skiing for all ages and levels of skiers.

Absolutely love this mountain. Great for families. The lesson/lit ticket/rental is the package to buy. It comes out to less money than the lift ticket alone. Instructors are very helpful. Conditions were great this past weekend. The mountain was able to make a lot of snow. Whole family had a blast, which consist of all different level skiers.

Jen Beginner Skier
Great conditions this past weekend and I was impressed considering we had lousy warm and rainy weather for most of last week. My first time at Windham so I had nothing to compare the conditions to, but the other two places I ski locally did not have as good trail conditions. My tip: eat lunch at the lodge up the mountain, no crowds and plenty of table space. You sacrifice the menu selections but if you eat at the main lodge during traditional lunch time it's a madhouse even trying to get seats. As crowded as it was, the lift lines were well managed and during peak skiing time, the wait was only ten minutes at the longest. Main quad moves very quickly and you can access most of the mountain from up top and make it to the other lifts.

Considering the limited natural snow we have received this winter, conditions were not bad. They had the snow guns going which gave spots a powdery feel... we had a great day on 1/22/13... very cold, not crowded... The biggest tip we can pass along is to bring your own food. The food is extremely pricy (which is a standard now) but the food was NOT GOOD at all... we paid $30 for 2 cold, hard cheeseburgers, 1 fry and 1 water... crazy... almost ran out of money for a beer after...

Overall I liked Windham. Unfortunately we picked a busy weekend (MLK), the wait time was soooo long, especially since it took two lifts to reach the top of the mountain. I would consider going again, but only on a weekday.

Vanessa Beginner Skier
Have always loved this mountain. I drive 2 hours from Jersey because it's never really crowded. However conditions are lacky. Exposed ground everywhere, even on open trails. My fault, I should have researched the conditions better. If we get some snow it's worth the trip.

AES Intermediate Skier
Mountain was washed out! Rocks, mud & slush on a few semi-skiable trails. You would think it was late spring. Hardly any skiers due to these conditions. The more advanced trails on the opposite mountain face weren't even groomed, icy and rough. Yet they tell you on the radio snow reports things are great! Why should you pay for a full price ticket for sub par conditions on 1/3 of the trails? Terrain park wasn't even open. Unless they get a good dump soon you'll be disappointed. No pow pow here, just global warming. Also an employee told me they don't make snow unless its 28 degrees out - otherwise they're just blowing wet snow, and its nowhere near that with this week's warm spell. I don't know why they advertise snow-making when they aren't doing it.

If you get the sunset deal (2-8pm) go right to the top with the quad chairs. After 3:30 they close one and at 4:30 they close the other. After that you only have a few trails to ski. Also, bring your own food. It's very expensive. $18 for a burger, fries and coke.

Bruce Intermediate Skier
I went to Windham on 12/27, they benefitted from the foot of snow that fell the night before. The trails were awesome. The upper lifts were fast and empty, the lower ones were packed. The only decent way to get up from the base is to spit up your group and wait in the singles line. Since it was during " holiday week" the mountain really screwed my group, they cut out the 4-hour lift tix and puffed-up the price of every other tix. ( Windham resorts eally likes to rob their customers for the holidays!) I suggest to anyone interested in trying Windham to stay away during the peek-rate dates, it is not worth paying Killington money to deal with uptight Windhamites.

Goal was to get two adult females and child 8 to learn how to ski. Rumor has Windham and Whiteface to have best schools. Not sure about others (although had seen Whiteface and think they are great but too far to drive) but on Windham by end of day all three were skiing and looking forward to hit some greens next time we go skiing. Great job! Child had full day class and our "moms" had "learn to ski package" at 38% discount from liftopia.

Went to Windham with my Dad on March 11th. The conditions were slightly slushy due to the unseasonably warm weather but all was good. The majority of the mountain was still open and though there were some lines for the major lifts, many of the trails were fairly uncrowded. The double blacks on the West side of the mountain are my favorite and there were very few ice patches.

May want to ask how large their Ski School / VIP groups are. I think they were lapping us while we waited in line. Several groups of approx 20 people. It gets annoying when they stack up at the main lift. That is sort of making money off other customers time....could also use some more attentive lift line management at the main lift. Other than that great family place and very enjoyable. Rock it on the G lift or the slower summit chair (which was off last weekend). No one uses those lifts.

Alex D Beginner Snowboarder
Windham is very family friendly and just the right size for intermediate skiers and for young kids. It is very helpful to have the dotted trails marked on the map in addition to the normal 4 levels of difficulty. For every new level you wish to try, you can always start from the dotted ones. They serve like 'bridge' trials between 2 levels. But we found the map being somewhat untrue in terms of the steepness of the trials within the same level. Some Blues like The World Cup is more difficult than Whistler, but it is not so on the map. So, be careful!

Windham Mountain have great teachers. I have been to other mountains for skiing and didn't have good teachers. Windham was the best teacher who gave us clear lesson on how to ski. The tips actually worked and 7 out of 8 in out group felt confident to go skiing on their own after the lesson. Its a very lively environment with music and great food! highly recommend it.

Jennifer Beginner Skier
Had a good day of skiing with my snowboarder friend Sat Jan 7 despite the poor conditions. Just enough of the mountain was open to use the good chairlifts and hit usable terrain. We recommend skiing the upper East side or left side of the mountain in the AM then moving over to the Western side in the afternoon. This helps during unseasonably warm temperatures and assisted in avoiding sun exposure of the melting slopes. Liftopia tickets were an easy pickup w just a driver's license. I wouldn't want to pay full price for a mountain that is barely half operational! Windham is definitely worth the trip but especially via Liftopia.

Frankie Hillman Advanced Skier
I purchased an adult lift ticket via Liftopia for use this past Saturday. I brought my son on Saturday so he could join me on the slopes. He's a 4th grader in N.Y. State. In N.Y., 4th graders ski free at N.Y. mountains such as Windham. The kids can ski for free at each mountain three times a season. When I picked up my Liftopia ticket at guest services, they would not allow me to use my son's N.Y. ski free ticket. Windham said I had to purchase a full-price lift ticket in order to use my son's N.Y. ski free ticket. So, in the end, it cost me more to use my Liftopia ticket and purchase a ticket for my son, then if I just purchased a full-price ticket. So, Windham has lost me as a future customer. That policy, coupled with the less than challenging slopes, will have us skiing elsewhere for the remainder of the season. Windham, catch you later. Much. For Liftopia, I will use your service in the future.

Visited Windham for the first time on 3/20/11. Great weather! Snow conditions were decent for the spring. Just keep your ears open and you'll find out which blacks & double blacks are in good condition for that day, and stick with those. Would've liked better conditions on MORE of those trails--but what can you do, it's the Ice Coast. Mini park could use some work...seems like they don't really care too much about that. Bummed me out since I was looking for some small freestyle features that day. Oh well. Boarder/Ski-X was fun, though. A+ for the atmosphere! Great bacon cheeseburgers and WAFFLE CABIN! :D

Treated myself to a day of skiing on Monday, March 28th. It was unusually cold, and I had the mountain almost all to myself (maybe 100 skiers there in the first hour). Most trails were groomed, but wind kicked up and things got a bit icy. Nothing Windham Mtn could have done about it since it was late spring and the cold streak probably contributed to the ice. Overall, a very enjoyable day. People that work here are ALL very nice, down to the last person. They seem genuinely friendly and glad that you are here. Overall, I would describe Windham as a bigger version of Butternut. More variety, but just as friendly.

Liftopia discount was the reason I went to Windham on Friday 3/25. I found the conditions awesome thanks to recent 6" of new snow! Nearly all trails were open and was flying down at speeds of 30 to 40 mph! I can tell because I wear a GPS. They are open for 1 more week and I am planning on going 1 more time. Thanks Liftopia for saving me some $$.

Windham was good times, went there with another beginner friend of mine. We usually do mtn creek and the trails here are much longer and challenging.

Liftopia is a breeze and Windham is a great ski area. They always have the trails expertly groomed and have a nice variety of runs. The lift staff are always courteous and the mountain has always been and remains a great place for children and families. The live band in the bar at the base lodge is always something to look forward to as well. Solid hill.

Had an amazing day! It was like our own private ski mountain. Their snowmaking is phenominal! And the sandwiches we got in the village just before you get to the mountain made the trip worth it alone! Its an Italian Deli like you'de fine in Manhattan! Place called Teddera's? Something like that. Look for a stone-faced double staircase on the right.

Skied on Friday, March 11. The early morning rain forecast kept the crowds away. Picked up my discount ticket with no one else around. Less than 100 people on the mountain, it seemed, the whole day. By noon time, the sun was shining, temps in the low 40's and the snow was in great shape, rather soft and nice to ski.

Went on Wednesday, 3/2/11 with a couple of friends. The place was empty! Loved that part of it. Snow was packed down and hard and there were a decent amount of ice patches, but it was bearable. 2 snowstorms came through and layered it all with a thin coat of snow. That helped tremendously. Overall a great day. Not the best conditions, but most of the mountain was open, lines were nonexistent, and Windham is nice as usual. Def recommend, but don't expect tons of fresh, soft snow.

It was so icy on 03/02/11 that I flipped over ice a few times and the mountain hadn't gained much snow since the rainstorm that happened two days prior to, so trying to get down the blacks was horrible, ice patches were everywhere, I felt my head and lower back hit the ice hard so much so that I went to see the medic and was recommended to not go back out (even though after I recovered I still went back, but took it a lot more easy). My advice: conditions aren't usually that great at Windham, another snowboarder told my friend and I that the conditions were actually good that day for what she's used to... so I'm surprised because I found the conditions particularly alarming and dangerous. It was incredibly windy at times with snow flurries and some steady snow coming down to help assuage the ice everywhere. Would possibly consider coming back some other time because it's a large mountain and the facilities are very nice, but this time it wasn't a great idea.

Nice Mountain. We hit it on the best possible day.Litopia service was good. Conditions great, snow flurries in the morning sunshine in the afternoon. Not crowded. Sign of the economy, more than anything, I think.

Liftopia was a great discount and all worked out very smoothly at Windham to pick up the tickets at Group Sales. Both of my nieces had beyond beginner group snowboard lessons and they were smiling from ear to ear. I recommend the group lessons as they are not overcrowded and at during some lessons it was just the two of them. It snowed Thursday evening so Skiing was GREAT on Friday. Overall we had a great time.

We had bought tickets from liftopia for a few days , one of the days my husband was sick so i had asked guest services if I could switch them for the next day they said YES but I had to call Liftopia and the operator on there said if I wanted to do that I had to e-mail them with a request . I explained I didn't have my computer at the mountain and could I speak with a supervisor and she said NO. Not very helpful ...So don't get sick would be my tip.

ps...rent the big plastic tub or "basket" as they call it for $5 all-day in and out. Totally worth it. We shed two layers. It's in the same place as rentals toward the back.

Arrived around 10:30 on Weds...shuttle service from lot is hit and miss. Liftopia pick up and online lift purchase for the kids was very smooth. Everyone is very helpful...love the attitude here. They could get a job in Disney any day. I was with my 7 and 10 yr olds, we're all beginners. We stuck to D lift pretty much the whole day since the kids were pensive about the new place. It's a triple chair, so perfect for us. It' always a litle nerve wracking when we have to split up. We went down White Way all day, which is a very nice, easy trail which you can make more fun if you wish. The Wheelhouse Lodge is right by the top of the D lift, which is absolutely great for lunch. We had a great sunny day. The staff here is great. My daughter got her mitt caught on the lift, she fell but everyone jumped to the rescue. Her mitt actually got stuck to the chair and when we went down, they had it waiting for us. I love their interactive trail map on their website. I really want to try Wanderer the next time.

My experience with Liftopia was great! Windham had positive and negatives... On the positive side, there were no lines and no waiting for rentals or lifts. The conditions were typical east coast - icy patches and little powder but a good run. On the negative side - Don't leave your child alone for a lesson until the child is assigned to an instructor. My child was checked in with the "chief" so I went to get my gear on and take a run. My child was then left for over 30 minutes while instructors started lessons. I trusted that the "chief" wouldn't have left a child hanging... not cool.

Bob (2:15 class on Monday 2/21) is a fantastic instructor. Our group of 3 were all beginners who had skied before, and he got us up and running, and having a good time, very quickly. Plus he made it fun. I accidentally bought the wrong package from Liftopia which was a BUMMER. There really should be a way to correct a simple mistake like that. The resort gets the same amount of money but I didn't get the rental I needed, and got an all-access lift ticket I didn't need as a beginner. Liftopia could do better in my opinion.

went to Windham this past weekend and it was just sking on ice. it was bad. that was first time going and my last. my friend got hurt. his knee popped out and might need surgery. Not a good time. If it was so icey then they should have added some snow.

Sunday Feb 13 -My girlfriend bought a ticket to take a lesson but the experience was not good. They gave her boots that didnt snap correctly and the instructor told her not to worry about the open top strap and had her continue the lesson! Obviously she couldnt control the skis the right way and the lesson was a waste. I had to teach her what I could on the training area in the afternoon and so I am asking for a refund. We will go again and the conditions were good there but what a jerk instructor in the 12 noon class.

I got the lift/lesson/rental package and I have to say it was a great deal and I had a great time. My lesson was awesome with a great instructor. It was a "group" lesson... but just with me and one other beginner skier. We basically cut all of the lines since we were with a "group" on the lower D lift. My best ski adventure yet!

Avoid Saturday if at all possible! this past Saturday there were, according to the woman at the group sales window where you redeem your Liftopia ticket, 19 BUSES! Yes, it was insane (not to mention I was in line behind a bus paying for all its passengers in cash!) lengthy lift lines (20+ minutes!) and packed cafeteria! But it was all worth it on Sunday (only 9 buses), a little icy but beautiful slopes, short lines, smiles all around in my family. My kids came out of ski school with smiles on their faces and ready to ski with mom and dad. We had a fantastic morning, on the upper slopes by 9 lots of open space with freshly groomed trails, beautiful. My kids loved the slopeside bungee and the Adventure Park kid's snowmobile track. We left screaming "We Love Windham!" and frankly, I can't understand why people prefer Hunter.

Windham is hands down "the better" ski resort in the area. Besides being a great mountain the people riding and working there are great. I hit Hunter on Thursday and Windham on Friday and without a doubt Windham was the better day!

Where should I start, ok so I went on a Thursday (Feb. 10, 2011) and conditions were posted as machine groomed/PP....Basically only two positives: 1). There were like 100 people on the mountain & no lift lines all day. 2). Nice lodge area. Negatives: grooming is sub-par, there parks were awful...it looks like someone with no brain built there jumps & they probably have not groomed anything in their parks in a week or so.....poor trail maintenance all the way around. Massive ice patches on a lot of trails. Half the lifts were not operating. I've been around the block on the east coast & this is one of the scrappier mountains I've been to. I would only recommend Windham if you are looking for a less expensive, less crowded place to go. Im sure this place could be fun after a fresh dump, but I can't see myself spending my money at Windham again anytime within the next decade...

Great mountain, a non holiday Monday we skied to the lift most every time, maybe 30 runs. I went with a Rockies skier who never knew the East, he and I had a great time. Wedel was a sheet of ice up high, Wolverine was much better top to bottom. Big variety of trails and terrain parks, had a blast in Mini and could really rip on Why Not.

Try not to book a trip until a few days before so you can see if you're going to experience the best conditions. I went this past Sunday and it was extremely icy. G Lift wasn't open due to a generator and they also didn't blow some artificial snow (I'm guessing because of the generators also). All they did was try to groom the ice with a tractor which is a no no.

Windham is a fun mid-sized moutain that is the best in the greater NYC metro area. It offers a nice combo for all levels of ability and has nice base lodge amenities. In its modest 1,600' vertical you'll find some nice expert terrain served by it's own triple, and the North Peak fast quad services some good blacks too. In between are plently of wide, fall line blue cruisers for a surprising amount of variety. Unlike it's sometimes hostile neighbor - that'd be Hunter Mountain - Windham has loads of nice folks and a much calmer vibe along with better skiers and boarders! The only thing missing is TREE skiing/boarding runs, with no glades at all. Windham could easily fix this problem because there's plenty of terrain that could be developed for this purpose, and literally double the acreage - so let's all encourage them to do so and make this great place even better!!!

We bought 7 advance tickets from Liftopia for Windham Mountain, January 29 (Saturday ). We had no problem picking up our tickets at the Group Sales window. Rental was quite a wait though. Since this was a weekend after tremendous snow, the rental line was over 30 minutes in waiting. Probably better to rent your gear ahead of time before coming to the mountain (at a ski shop) or invest in your own. Weather was awesome, slightly warm.

Saturday Feb 5, in the heart of the ski season, and the G lift (East Mtn) was shut down all day due to "electrical problems" and the "F" lift, next to the quad was also closed, thus making it extremely crowded, tight, long lifts- clearly did not come close to getting money's worth. Windham offered 50% off a ticket for March 1- end of season as a consolation; which may or may not be good deal. They need to do something to make sure that in height of season something like that does not happen yet again !!!

Windham does the best job with the most amount of people and the least amount of snow. They have great snowmaking coverage and work their butts off to keep the mountain in good shape. It also has a great variety of terrain that keeps me happy no matter what mood I'm in. No, it's not Vermont, or Utah, or the Alps, but it's definitely the best place in a three-hour radius of New York.

Graham Advanced Skier
Best mountain in the Catskills. That doesn't really say much, but the layout of this mountain blows Hunter (the only real competition) away. The main reason is that you can avoid the crowds more on a busy day. Hunter relies mainly on one annoyingly crowded lift that you really can't avoid. They have another DD lift, but only have one DD trail (claire's way) that is ever open and/or in rideable condition. Windham has great DD runs that don't get crowded to the right off of the main lift, and can also be reached by a seperate lift. Also a seperate peak with great diamond runs. Also less crowded.

The mountain is decent with some steep terrain, but no real sustained steeps. It is a great mountain for beginner and intermediate skiers. Advanced skier will want to get to the lifts early and stay on the upper fixed double chair, otherwise you will be waiting in line a lot.

Wiindham is a great mountain for all levels of skiers and snow boarders. It is a good size and offers a lot of fun. I went with 5 other friends and 4 of them were learning or going as their first few times. The lesson seemes to be very helpful to all that take it. The first timers in my group were on a few trails by the end of the day and had a blast. The diamonds are in great shape and I was lucky to have ideal conditions for anyone. A great day overall has left me on a high note about Windham and I am definitely looking forward to my next visit!

I got a normal lift ticket and my girlfriend used the beginner lesson package. Worked out perfect for us, she got a great lesson for about 2 hours, i got to do my thing in that time, then we skied together afterwards on the lower mountain. For the money you cant beat it, and conditions were great. Looked crowded at the bottom, but up at the top was not crowded at all. Only thing i can do without is the rental lines, but that's anywhere. I have my own stuff but my girlfriend needed rentals. Next time we're renting from home before driving up. Could have been on mountain at least 45 minutes before we actually got onto the snow. Cant wait to go back!

The people were very pleasant and the lifts were fast and comfortable. Needless to say I has a spectacular time. The price thanks to Liftopia was very reasonable as well. Thank you for making it happen. You've made me a very satisfied customer.

The "Learn to Ski/Ride" package is a little limited in terms of which lifts you can use (C,D,K and the beginner's magic carpet area), but it's a great deal for really beginner skiiers/snowboarders who only plan on using the lower mountains anyway. Even if you don't end up taking the lesson, it's worth it.

Windham was off the chains on Wed. 1/12/11. Lift lines were Nil and fresh tracks could be made if you were an early bird. Me and my squadron of chronic-head-noddin skiers and riders covered every available acre, and some of the unavailable ones. And we did it all on the cheap thanks to Liftopia!

Windham is such a great mountain. staff is awesome and more importantly the people who ski the mountain are awesome. The base lodge is old school with cubbies to store your stuff for the day or you can get a locker. The fire pit and food stand have really good food, and the Wheelhouse mid-mountain is a great place to refuel without having to head all the way down the mountain. And it has a great view from the deck. And lastly the WAFFLE CABIN!!!! Need I say more?!? Now to the mountain itself. The trails are wide for the most part, but I have not been down the blacks. The trails are well maintained and most of the mountain stays in the sun until about 3pm. My favorite trail is Upper Warpath to Whiskey Jack. I am finally getting comfy on the blues, but I have to say Wedgie is not for the faint of heart especially when its almost a solid sheet of ice. Its a narrow trail and I finally understood why it was named Wedgie. All in all, I prefer Windham to Hunter any day of the week for a day trip or even a weekend.

Good amount of skiing options as far as slopes are. The distance down-slope is better than PA mountains for sure. Morning skiing is better, gets busy round 1 - 2pm. Can get cold and windy up on the peaks, so bring goggles and something to cover your face!

Windham and Liftopia were amazing. Got a great deal on the tickets from Liftopia and the staff and service at Windham was first class. Everyone from the counter staff, to the instructors, to the lift operators were excellent. My wife and I snowboarded for 3 days and by day 2 we were on a first name basis with everyone who worked there. on the second day the gentleman at the counter recognized us and had everything ready by the time we reached the counter. Cannot say enough good things about this experience.

Great place! Fire pit is great @ lunch. Wish they developed the intermediate park a bit more. Jumps were OK but you landed in a bowl (probably from lack of snow cause of the rain) and only 1 flat rail. Still a fun mountain to ride from Jersey.
