Willow is a small town in the Catskills near the Hunter Mountain Ski Resort area. This is a tranquil, rugged area of the state, near the colorful towns of Woodstock, Catskill Corners and Phoenicia. The area has some of the best trout fishing in the state of New York, and white water rafting, tubing, boating and swimming, hiking and horseback riding and mountain biking are just some of the other activities to enjoy in the summertime. Hunter Mountain is called the "closest big mountain to metro New York," and offers downhill skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, nighttime skiing and more. Hunter Mountain is also host to several special events throughout the year including an International Celtic Festival, the German Alps Festival, Microbrew & Wine Festival and Oktoberfest. Antique stores are abundant in the region surrounding the town of Willow, along with unique shops that sell everything from candles to home grown produce. Other attractions in the area include the Empire State Railroad Museum in Phoenicia and the Woodstock School of Art, which is a National Historic Landmark. The Catskill Mountain Railroad in Phoenicia takes visitors on a six-mile, round trip train ride along the scenic Esopus Creek in the Catskills Mountains, and is an especially beautiful trip in the fall.

Willow Weather & Climate

The Catskills region has cold, snowy winters and warm summers, but without the stifling, oppressive heat and humidity of some coastal areas. Normally, the hottest week of the year in the Catskills is the third week of July. September offers mild days and cool nights and October is a kaleidoscope of color. "Jack Frost" will likely make his first appearance in October, and the first hard freeze is usually at the end of that month. November is unpredictable and with December comes colder temperatures and more moisture - either in the form of rain or snow. The full force of the winter season arrives in January and stays around until March in the Catskills. Average January temperatures are a good three to four degrees colder at elevations from one to two thousand feet and over seven degrees colder at over two thousand feet.
