Mount Pisgah is a 3345′ privately owned peak in the northwestern Catskills. The mountain was once home to the Bobcat Ski Center which closed in 1995. Like many of the small lower elevation ski centers, as the snow totals and duration have decreased in the Catskills, they have not survived without snowmaking capacity. Add competition from the larger more modern resorts these small gems are slipping away. Mount Pisgah is ranked 51st highest in the Catskill 100 and 16th of the Catskill 67. Excellent views are still found from the old ski slopes.
The now-closed Bobcat Ski Center is located on Grommeck Road, Andes NY. You can read about the ski center here if you’re so inclined. Please note: Weaver Hollow Road is not drivable to the summit as shown on some maps.
This peak is entirely on private land. You must obtain the landowner’s permission before entering this property.
Please be mindful of COVID19 during this hiking season.
