Windham Mountain Club Announces Resort Master Plan

Windham Mountain Club welcomes year-round experiences and big culinary changes as the focus of new development plans.

Windham Mountain Club, formerly known as Windham Mountain, is widely considered a top destination for winter sports in the Hudson Valley and, earlier this year, ownership at the ski resort announced it secured investments from two development families: the Beall family, whose founding member created the restaurant chain Ruby Tuesday, and Kemmons Wilson Hospitality Partners, best known as the founding enterprise behind the Holiday Inn hotel chain. Now, Windham Mountain Club is in an exciting new chapter after having presented its initial resort master plan to the Town Board of Windham. This means, in short, Windham is about to get even better.

Beyond providing capital and resources to the resort’s management team, this investment will considerably expand year-round programming at the mountain. Wintertime visitors can look forward to enhancements to Windham’s world-class skiing with brief lift lines, increased snow-making, and upgrades to existing lift infrastructure, like automated snow-making. What’s more, when the snow melts, the resort will offer swimming, racket sports, family activities, and “expansive outdoor all-season adventure activities.” And if that wasn’t enough, this investment will allow Windham to reimagine its existing golf course. “The Wilson family and the Beall family are deeply committed to working with the same great team of current owners and senior leaders to make Windham Mountain a category leader in the East over the next five years,” says Webb Wilson, CEO at Kemmons Wilson Companies. With the help of these new partners, the resort will attract even greater volumes of tourism to Greene County.

While Windham is best known as a mecca for skiers and snowboarders, it also boasts year-round activities like a climbing wall and summit yoga during summertime. Beginning in June, mountain bikers get to experience “a truly unique downhill riding experience” made by world-renowned trail designers with the longest jump trail on the East Coast. In addition to year-round programming for the entire family, new amenities for members under the master plan will include a luxury spa, gym, and fitness club, an adventure club offering fly-fishing and horseback riding, a Hudson River outpost, and an amphitheater for summer concert series. Existing homeowners in the Windham community will be able to apply for community memberships starting November 2023.

The developments aren’t all about adventure, though. Windham Mountain is positioning itself as a regional hotspot as it plans to focus on developing the acquired East Side property with new townhomes, single-family properties, lots, and green spaces. Property beautification and expanded lodging are also in the works to provide a more comfortable experience for out-of-town guests that encourages them to stay longer.

Windham’s food and beverage programs are also getting a revamp with the redevelopment of all current outlets and the addition of a mid-mountain Italian-Alps style concept, Cin! Cin!, that is set to debut this fall. The restaurant will add to the resort’s existing options, namely Tavern 23 (not to be confused with the Poughkeepsie haunt of the same name) and Mulligan’s Pub. “Our new partners are additive: Their extensive hospitality experience will further enhance what has set Windham Mountain apart in the Northeast for generations,” says Chip Seamans, president of Windham Mountain. “New amenities and enhanced food and beverage operations will continue our pursuit to create the quintessential Catskills experience.”

While developments will be ongoing through 2025, this fall will see a significant improvement on the mountain’s culinary front with the new mid-mountain restaurant, as well as a revitalized food hall and Seasons, a Mediterranean-inspired restaurant within the lodge. Not only will Windham’s new amenities and attractions provide hundreds of jobs for the surrounding population, but they will also encourage visitors of the mountain to expand their stays and invest in the local community.
