Rent an Entire Ski Area Near NYC for $2,500 Per Day

It's a three-hour drive from Manhattan

Located about three hours from New York City in the Catskills, Plattekill Mountain may not be quite as big as other northeastern ski areas (there's only 4 chairlifts), but what the ski area lacks in size it makes up for in authenticity. Independent and family-owned, Plattekill aims to "keep it real" by allowing skiers and snowboarders to rent the entire mountain. Yes, you read that correctly. Up to 250 people can rent the entire ski area for $2,500 per day.

According to Plattekill's website, that price also includes use of the ski area's facilities. "We'll open the rental shop, have food options in the cafeteria, drinks served up at the bar and a line up of instructors to teach you!" That's pretty darn cheap, considering the price of a lift ticket these days.

Advance reservations are required. And hurry up; a day of skiing Plattekill's 38 trails sounds way better than the normal corporate retreat.
