Following an announcement in April 2023 regarding new investment to support an exciting chapter ahead for the historic Catskills destination, Windham Mountain, NY, has presented a resort master plan to the Town Board of Windham.
The presentation focused on the development of the acquired Fromm/East Side property, incorporating townhomes, single-family properties, lots, and green space. The plan also includes enhanced property beautification and expanded lodging. This strategic enhancement aims to provide a more comfortable experience for out-of-town guests, encouraging them to extend their visits and explore all that the destination has to offer.
The master plan outlines priority areas of focus, including the following:
- Continuing to ensure best-in-class skiing with minimal lift lines, increased snowmaking, and upgrades to existing lift infrastructure
- Offering great food and beverage programs with the redevelopment of all current outlets and the addition of a mid-mountain, Italian-Alps style concept debuting fall 2023
- Expanding and reinvigorating the existing Golf Course; and thoughtful amenities, including swimming, racket sports, family activities, and expansive outdoor all-season adventure activities
- Developing enhanced membership offerings for the existing Members’ Club
Developments will be ongoing through 2025. However, fall 2023 will see significant improvements to the culinary offerings at Windham Mountain. A new mid-mountain restaurant will debut, in addition to a revitalized food hall and Mediterranean-inspired restaurant inside the existing Lodge.
“It is an exciting time at Windham, and we look forward to expanding our season to feature robust year-round experiences, while providing an ever-better experience to our loyal guests and members of the community. Our goal is to continue to offer unique opportunities for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the Catskills and immerse themselves in the refreshing destination that is Windham Mountain.”
– President Chip Seamans
The enhancements to Windham will introduce hundreds of local jobs as the mountain upgrades its offerings and evolves into a four-season resort destination, encouraging guests to visit for longer periods of time and invest in the local community.
Windham Mountain is a premier multi-generational, four-season resort in the Northeast, located in the Great Northern Catskills, two and a half hours north of New York City. In 1960, Windham started as a private club before becoming a public mountain. Boasting 285 skiable acres across 54 trails and serviced by 11 lifts (four of which are high-speed), the mountain offers an award-winning Ski and Ride School, lodging, on-mountain dining, a tubing park, and world-class alpine and freestyle competition teams. Summer offerings include a range of activities, such as mountain getaways, family-friendly events and festivals, wedding and special occasion venues, the Windham Downhill Mountain Bike Park, and the Windham Country Club, an 18-hole golf course with private lessons and on-site dining.
