Skiing, Back in the Day

Still looking for that perfect Holiday gift for that skier in your life?  George Quinn, whom many of you know as our mild-mannered shopkeeper on the second floor of the lodge at Plattekill, has assembled a fabulous collection of photographs and stories from the early days of skiing in the Catskills in his latest book, Skiing in the Catskill Region.  The book is available for $20 in his shop. Stop by and pick one up on your next visit to Platty!

Here's Laszlo with young Nicholas back in 2003. 
Did you know that there was a log-cabin Ski Bureau located in the corner of Grand Central Terminal in the 1940's (upper left)?
