It's Official Like A Referee With A Whistle!

The Kaatskill Flyer, New York State's first six-passenger detachable chairlift is complete and ready to rock!

We anxiously await the arrival of winter temperatures so that we can kick-off the 2010-2011 ski and snowboard season in style.

The state-of-the-art chairlift is built by Leitner-Poma, the world's leading chairlift manufacturer. The new lift replaces our detachable quad chairlift, also manufactured by Poma, which was originally installed in 1987.
