Slide, buried in deep white, brought to life vivid dreams of a winter wonderland.
The path was challenging without snowshoes, yet each step yielded the rewards of a breathtaking winter landscape frozen in time. Fleeting sunshine, tunnels of snowbound evergreens, ice-clad creeks and the delicate imprints of rabbits' feet embued the silent landscape with life and wonder.
Very cold day. Used snowshoes. Some deep snow near the summit but not really any views. Nonetheless, a memorable solo hike.
My introduction to mountains. Done as a weekend trip along with Wittenberg and Cornell.
not the best views from the summit, but on the hairy east face good views
Took Curtis-Ormsbee Trail to a snowy summit with minimal views.
Nice hike. Terrible views. Lots of ice in the evergreens.
I decided to pick up the Catskill HP and P2K after visiting my parents for xmas. The trail was a little icy and there weren't many views.
This was fun to do in the winter given all the snow we had to get through, and it being a short hike. So it took a while but was just a warm up for the next day. Perfect little warm up hike, but it was fogged in at the top.
Maybe I'm just spoiled, but the majority of trails (maintained) that I traveled out West were not so rough (aside from the length and altitude.) These trails out here are closer to 2nd class hiking. I did love the approach from the East, lots of great class 3, and steep, steep sections of trail. Not so great a view from the top. Wittenberg, and the ridge to Cornell was better
Climbed this when I was a youngin, so don't remember much...expect that it did help start my love for the outdoors.
Walked up with my brother. First "peak" on our drive from New York to Seattle.
Climbed via the Curtis-Ormsbee Trail from Winnisook. My first time in the Catskills. An easy hike up a Slide's gentle western slope. The summit was fogged in and there was still some early morning rhyme ice trees.
I think I'm right about the date. The trail was a solid sheet of ice.
Amazing views on the trail. The climb up to slide was steep, snowy and icy. Great adventure.
Climbed the easy side Christmas Day 2007. About 3 inches of snow at the base increased to 8 inches on the summit. Clouds above 3500 feet obscured any view. Still a nice day to be hiking and to break out the snowshoes.
Fun time, included Cornell.Some great scrambles between Slide and Cornell. 10F with winds 15-20mph approx. 10-12 inches of snow on summit.
Wittenberg, Cornell & Slide in one day. Beautiful day at the summit.
Crisp clear day, memorable
Got up early and did the out-n-back ascent of Berg, Cornell, and Slide on the red trail. Very fun indeed.
