About the Ski Resort

The ski area is called Beartown and it is located in Beekmantown NY, which is just outside of Plattsburgh, on Beartown Road. It has a T-bar and a Poma which serve about 4 slopes (although the ski area will insist that they have 9 trails!) Total vertical drop is about 150 ft. (I think). It is run as a not-for-profit facility by a volunteer board of directors from the area. The area has been in operation since the 50's, and has an active ski team with about 70 youth ages 4-11. We are open on weekend, Thurs and Fri nights, and on school vacations. Definitely a beginner area.

Beartown Ski Area was a classic, and somewhat long lived CCC area that was originally built as a Ski Train Destination. It was also one of the largest areas to close in Massachusetts (820' drop)- only Brodie Mountain had a larger one (~1250'). With three rope tows and about 10 trails at its heyday, it was quite the happening place.
