A Catskills Winter Vacation in Callicoon, NY

Quite possibly, the most noteworthy attribute of the Sullivan Catskills area is that it maintains a vibrant outdoor recreation scene throughout the entire year. In just a matter of days, the rolling foothills of the Catskills Mountains will be coated in a bright white blanket of snow, making the prospect of a Catskills winter vacation an inviting proposition. Embracing winter is a way of life for those of us residing in Upstate New York. As autumn’s door closes, the parks become more vacant, the lakes freeze, and the temperatures take a noticeable tumble. But don’t let a bit of snow and brisk air prevent you from admiring the beauty of a mid-day snowfall or the crunch of fresh powder underneath your boots. Now is the time to dig out your snowshoes, scarfs, and stocking caps and make the most of the Catskills winter!
