Mount Peter is located in Southern New York in the heart of the Hudson Valley.
We are known for many things, like our famous Free Beginner Ski and Snowboard School, our great snowmaking and expert grooming, an awesome terrain park, our top-notch racing and development programs, and our family atmosphere.
Did you know that Mount Peter was started in 1936 by Macy's Department Store to show off and sell their ski fashion? The mountain that started so many years ago as a savvy marketing tool has grown to be a cherished place for people to fall in love with winter. Mount Peter is the oldest operating ski area in New York State, and one of the few remaining family operated ski areas in the country.
We have made changes to our Snowbasin Learning Area and added a Carpet Lift! Each season we add even more snowmaking, and we are open for night skiing on 95 percent of our trails.
We are grateful for the past 78 years, and we are looking forward to many great seasons of skiing and riding to come. Mount Peter is a great place to hang out with friends, meet new people (many a romance has begun on our slopes!), and reconnect with family. And while the ski business is always changing, one thing will remain the same: If you've been a customer for years, or are a first-timer, coming to Mount Peter is now, and will forever be, like coming home.
