Ride the Bus to New York’s Best Ski Areas

Get out and enjoy this winter’s bounty of snow when you ride the I Love NY Bus for a day trip to some of the state’s best ski areas. Hop aboard a roomy Hampton Jitney motor coach in midtown and in a few hours you’ll be skiing or snowboarding in the Catskill Mountains.

Spend the day schussing down the slopes at big and bold Hunter Mountain, family-perfect Plattekill or homespun Belleayre. Each offers diverse terrain, scenic trails and vertical drops to please double black diamond daredevils and novices alike.

Day trips start at $99 and include deluxe round-trip transportation, lift ticket and tasty onboard snacks and beverages. If you need lessons and rental equipment, the package price starts at $129.

Depart from 44th and 3rd Ave. at 7AM and return approximately 12 hours later. The ride to the Catskills takes around two hours, so you’ll have plenty of time off the bus to revel in the great outdoors. Trips are scheduled on Fridays (Hunter Mountain), Saturdays (Plattekill) and Sundays (Belleayre) through early March.
