The Pines Hotel History
Built in 1933, this ski resort was once a popular resort in the Catskill region of New York. Many buildings have been added on as the facility expanded over the years, and the hotel boasted an ice skating rink, fully equipped theater, golf course, baseball field, conference center, and both indoor and outdoor pools.
The Pines Hotel eventually closed its doors in 1998, and is (disputably) owned by Fallsburg Estates, LLC. The lack of roof maintenance has caused serious damage to parts of the buildings, and the structure is rapidly falling apart from the freezing and thawing of the seasons. Demolition appears to have been started in the fall of 2011.
