Windham Ski Map

Windham Ski Mountain

If New York City had a home ski hill, it might just be Windham. Located just a couple of hours from the bustling metropolis, Windham is easily accessible from NYC but feels a world apart. Located in the Catskill Mountains, Windham brings a breath of the old-time, classic ski experience to New York. And, located only an hour away from Albany, Windham is easily accessible for anyone who wants to escape the city and experience the mountains instead.

But Windham isn’t just easy to access, it’s also a worthy mountain in its own right. With 1,600 feet of vertical, and 54 named runs, there’s plenty of terrain for the whole family. In fact, Windham has been awarded multiple times as one of the most family-friendly resorts in the United States. Some of that reputation comes from its varied terrain, it’s easy to start at Windham with zero experience, learn the fundamentals, and then gradually work your way up until you’re comfortable skiing their double black diamond terrain. James Niehues captured that terrain in this Windham ski map he painted in 2005. So whether you’ve lived at Windham for years, or it's just your favorite escape from the city, this map is a great memento to remember its skiing by.
